As always, Katie did it, and it was lucky that we were around while she was doing it.

She did it. Katie Taylor I did it.She struck Amanda Serrano.. She made a decision. She heard her sweetest words before Bedlam came down from everywhere. And still. .. ..

She did it. midnight. At Madison Square Garden.With the ghosts of ants and Frazier Joe Louis Let’s take a peek from the eaves and see what the turmoil was. What they saw on Saturday night, they have seen before. I did it before. Was done before. The days when boxing sucked the world into the yard like a bus plug pulled from Midtown in Manhattan are gone. Katie Taylor brought them back.

She did it. 21 professional battles, 21 professional wins. A few years have now stepped into her-she is 36 years old in a few weeks. And her recent victories, these nights, she has to pull the rope hard to collect them. Serrano probably deserved a draw on Saturday night-she certainly didn’t deserve a 97-93 decision with one judge’s card. Boxing tends to turn towards the brightest lights, but Taylor receives a call.

She did it. When she began to learn how to wrap her hands and see what she did with it, she played a sport that didn’t exist in nature. She insisted on putting it out for the Olympics. She knocked down her London home in case she was wondering if the IOC had made the right decision. She gave the momentum of amateur boxing. This is a good news article that survives all corruption, judgment and confusion.

She did it. She changed how people think about women in sports. In a very realistic way, she retracted the border ropes of what people find acceptable. Watch the final round of Saturday night, blood-matted hair, the Claret River flowing between her and Serrano, and splatters everywhere. There would have been a howl of her anger and disgust, putting those photos back on paper in the early 2000s when she started. No one rethinks it today.

She did it. She changed what her parents could get angry with for her daughter. Around the country, moms and dads panicked to see a little kid climbing the third branch of a tree have nothing to think about pointing Katie Taylor as a role model. A person who aspires to exist, a life that dreams of creating for himself. The most admired athlete in the country is the woman who wants to hit your face. And who can be beaten on the face repeatedly?

She did it. She. Undoubtedly, she is persistent and unmanageable. The odds for successfully making a female path through the most male and most macho sports of them are all moonshot counts. When men now discuss Katie Taylor, they’ve seen how Serrano was unjustly done, whether Persoon won the first fight, and all the little things that have supported boxing over time. Moan about the noise on weekdays. They no longer discuss whether women’s boxing is good.

She did it. She made her fortune when everyone guessed that she wasn’t lucky. She has now cleared over $ 1 million in battles. Aside from the Conor McGregor show, you need to go back to Wayne McCullough to find the last Irish boxer who can regularly command that kind of purse. She bought her own speedboat last year. Speedboat, no less. At all levels, it was unthinkable when she turned professional in 2016.

She did it. Her way, everyone else. She was famous in Ireland for most of the 20 years, yet she remains unaware of all intent and purpose. In countries where public figures tend to have no choice but to parcel some of themselves, she has refrained from doing a lot for herself. She lives in a small town in Connecticut and no one knows her there. She is herself and she loves it.

She did it. She did it.The story of her transmission Eddie Hearn Breaking down the idea of ​​a professional career, DM launched a billion How It Started memes, obscuring the chutzpah of the act itself. She didn’t ask her management company to approach, she didn’t go through her intermediary. She did what she always did. She drove her story and paved the way for her.

She did it. She did it. She didn’t tell the way to the top. She was never promoted to the top of her own station. She has never ridiculed anyone for a little extra icing on the cake. Have you ever had a world champion boxer who is likely to come out with a few hype suggestions? Can you think of someone who is more immune to the art of selling big time sports? She doesn’t have time to do it. And now they’re talking seriously about Croke Park.

She did it. The idea that a boxing match could go on in Ireland was off the table throughout her professional career, not to mention the biggest match ever. The Regency shooting took place in February 2016, eight months before she sent a message to Hahn. Consider all the deaths, all the stains, all the misery that have poisoned the sport since then. Imagine a fighter who then resumed professional boxing in Ireland. Now imagine that it probably isn’t even ranked in the top five achievements of your life.

She did it. She changed everything. You now see her with her pug’s face, bruises around her eyes, the glow of her cheekbones, and the faint moments of fatigue that fall from her like autumn leaves. You look at her and think about everything that happened, that every step was less likely than the previous step, and how she made them all inevitable.

She did it. Fortunately, she was around while she was doing so. As always, Katie did it, and it was lucky that we were around while she was doing it.
