Footage Of The Time Sofya Ochigava Beat Katie Taylor
Here’s Katie Taylor at Heathrow Airport this afternoon looking highly relaxed. Underneath the cool exterior and I’d say that Taylor has some part of her mind on Russian boxer Sofya Ochigava, the Russian boxer who she beat in the World Championship final back in May. You won’t find much information on Katie Taylor’s career defeats simply because there aren’t many of them. In fact, this fight below from the 2010 Usti na Labem Gran Prix in the Czech Republic in March, 2010 between Ochigava and Taylor is the only proof we can find online of Taylor’s fallibility. Ochigava won 8-1, which is shockingly one-sided. Ochigava was a 2008 world-champion at at featherweight who moved up a division. She’s the biggest threat to Katie Taylor’s gold medal dreams. Get used to her name. Anyonne who thinks Taylor’s place on the gold medal podium is cemented should think twice. She’s wearing red in the fight below.
