Bray People - - Sport -

REIGN­ING WORLD, Euro­pean and Euro­pean Union light­weight cham­pion Katie Tay­lor has with­drawn from next month’s Witch Cup in Hun­gary be­cause of a back in­jury.

Tay­lor, of the Bray Box­ing Club, had been hop­ing to win her third gold medal on the trot at the Hun­gar­ian Multi Na­tions tour­na­ment.

But she has de­cided not to risk ag­gra­vat­ing the in­jury fur­ther with her World ti­tle de­fence in China less than three months away.

The 22-year-old will be at­tempt­ing to claim her sec­ond World ti­tle on the trot in China, two years af­ter she fin­ished on top of the 60Kg podium at the 2006 World Cham­pi­onships in New Delhi In­dia.

The 2009 Women’s World Cham­pi­onships take place be­tween Novem­ber 22nd and 29th in Ningbo City, China.
