Taylor was embraced by family members when the cards were read and, with the Principality Stadium almost full ahead of Anthony Joshua's meeting with Carlos Takam, the decision was met with a big roar.
She had labelled this the Andrej Sekera Jersey biggest night of her life, a big claim for a five-time world amateur champion and the 2012 Olympic gold medal winner.But the Bray fighter never looked in danger of suffering stage fright. She strutted into the ring with confidence and started quickly, landing several right hands in the opening two-minute round.
Sanchez, who was beaten for only the third time in 20 fights, could not shift a solitary pound despite being given two hours to do so after Friday's weigh-in.It meant only Taylor could leave Wales with the title, but the Buenos Aires fighter still found the grit http://www.avalancheofficialauthenticshop.com/Teemu_Selanne_Jersey_Adidas needed to rise Eddie Goldman Authentic Jersey from a crippling blow to the body in the second round.
The Argentine brought a threat of her own, landing some stinging counter punches as Taylor applied consistent pressure in a contest packed with the kind of heavy hitting which draws gasps from those Authentic Phil Rizzuto Jersey in attendance.
But two rapid-fire right hands in the fifth summed up all that Taylor was about as she maintained exquisite accuracy, notably with the right hand.The cut above her eye failed to deter http://www.nfltitansofficialshop.com/YOUTH+RYAN+SUCCOP+JERSEY her late on as a five-shot combination found the target in the ninth. She was simply quicker to the punch and, when the pair boxed at close quarters, Taylor always looked more willing to walk through punches and be the last of the two swinging.
With a world title to her name she now carries significant collateral in chasing unification bouts or pursuing a mooted clash with UFC start Holly Holm, herself a former world boxing champion at multiple weights.
Taylor will have options, but once again showed how comfortable she is on http://www.officialauthenticbroncos.com/YOUTH+ANDY+JANOVICH+JERSEY the big stage as she completed her rapid ascent to the top of the pro game and built http://www.baseballofficialproshop.com/seattle-mariners-c-691_788.html on a glorious amateur pedigree.It was very impressive given Taylor has only had seven pro fights and it comes within a year of her leaving the amateur game.
One of the key factors in the making of a champion is resilience and Sanchez showed plenty of that.But throughout the contest Taylor had the edge in power and variety. She will have Sam Bradford Authentic Jersey learned much and taken much confidence from going 10 rounds at such a pace.
But there were signals also of the dangers at the highest level. There were times where she was caught freely by Sanchez.But overall, a performance of great credit, well received by the huge crowd. That can only have added to her marketability. That in turn is a massive boost for women's boxing, not just in this country.
