Katie Taylor has won a Texaco sports award for 2007 it has been announced. It has been another incredible season for the 21 year old Bray woman who won her third European lightweight title in a row in Denmark in October under a year after she claimed a World 60Kg title in New Delhi India.

In addition, Taylor is ranked number one in the World and Europe, and number one in the World and Europe in the pound-for-pound ABA rankings.

Nine other amateur and professional sports stars have also received a Texaco award for 2007. The awards will be presented at the O'Reilly Hall, University College Dublin on December 12th next.

According to her dad and coach Peter Taylor, Katie is thrilled to accept the prestigious 2007 Texaco award for boxing.

He said: "Katie is very proud to accept this award and it is a great achievement for the Bray Boxing Club. It has been a fantastic year for her and she would like to thank everyone for all their support."

Taylor, who is a member of the Irish Amateur Boxing Associations High Performance Unit, could box in an exhibition bout at the 2008 National Senior Championships which will be held over four days at the National Stadium in Dublin beginning on January 8th.
