(NOV 14) Reigning World, European and European Union lightweight champion Katie Taylor departed for China today ahead of her 60Kg title defence at the 5th AIBA Women's World Championships in Ningbo City, China.

The 21 year old Irish woman will take part in an AIBA training camp in Ningbo City in the lead up to the Championships which glove off on November 22nd.

Taylor won her first World title after finishing on top of the 60Kg podium in New Delhi, India in November 2006.

According to her dad and coach Peter Taylor, a former Irish senior champion, who will be working his daughters corner
in Ningbo City, the Bray lightweight will be aiming to make in two in a row in China.

He said: "Katie has prepared very well for this tournament and her focus is on retaining her title in China. Her confidence is high but she is aware that she will be one of the ones to beat in Ningbo City and she knows that nothing can be taken for granted."

The 5th AIBA Women's World Championships has attracted a record entry of 208 boxers from 44 Federations.

Women's senior bouts are contested over three, two minute rounds.

The tournament will be contested across 13 weight categories: (46kg, 48kg, 50kg, 52kg, 54kg, 57kg, 60kg, 63kg, 66kg, 70kg, 75kg, 80kg, 86kg)

*If Taylor retains her title in China then Ireland will won two World titles at 60Kg this year. Ray Moylett, from the St Anne's club in Westport, claimed lightweight gold at the recent AIBA World Youth championships in Guadalajara, Mexico. Jamie Kavanagh (silver), David Joe Joyce (Bronze) and Thomas McCarthy (Bronze) also finished in podium positions in Mexico.*
