What is the net worth of Katie Taylor?

After a maximum of 20 minutes of fighting, ‘The Bray Bomber’ will walk away from ‘The Mecca of Boxing’ $1 million richer. But in reality, it has taken a lifetime of work to get to this stage. From boxing as an amateur in her homeland, her trainers always felt she had the tools to make it to the pinnacle of the sport.

And how right they were. Taylor has spent her adult years dazzling fans with her lightning hand speed and impeccable boxing skills. Consequently, as per Explore Net Worth, she’s accumulated a $2 million valuation of herself through her achievements.

Taylor earned $1 million from her victorious rematch against Delfine Persoon. That is according to Sportekz.

Away from competing, Taylor has immersed herself in charity work. The popular sportswoman is now an ambassador for Temple Street Charity, an Irish-based charity which supports sick children and their families. And helping the patients means the world to her.

She said: “Temple Street is a truly amazing place full of incredible little fighters and wonderful, caring staff who do such exceptional work. While it’s heartbreaking to see what some of the kids are having to go through, their courage and bravery is truly inspirational to me.

“I’m delighted to help out in any small way I can. I will continue raising awareness for the great work that’s being done at Temple Street.”
