Katie Taylor cruised to victory in her second professional fight on Saturday night against Brazilian fighter Viviane Obenauf.

After a disappointing Olympics, the Irish boxer showed exactly what she was made of and was declared the winner by unanimous decision with a 60-53 advantage on the scorecards. 

It was one-way traffic for the majority of the bout, and fellow boxers were quick to congratulate her on a stunning performance.

Athletes from other sports who were watching the bouts also praised her, while journalists in attendance were in little doubt that she was the best in the game.

Even Sporty Spice herself had kind words for Taylor after her fight.

After starting her professional career 2-0, Taylor will now be looking ahead to her next step, as she continues to display just how talented she is.
