From the very beginning, Taylor applied pressure going forward and landed shots at will to outclass Clarkson.

“It was great, it was a fantastic experience,” Taylor said about her US debut.

“My first fight here in the US, I think there were a lot of nerves before the fight.

“It was great to get the stoppage in the end as well, there were a lot of Irish people in the crowd which made it very special for me,” Taylor added.

Taylor was humble in victory pointing out that she was caught with a few “silly” shots and how she was “a bit sloppy at times”.

She said: “I thought I did OK, I got caught with a few silly shots and was a bit sloppy at times but I thought overall it was a good performance – I felt good and strong in there tonight.
