Taylor Advances

Katie Taylor is headed to the semi finals with her win today. And then here, with any luck.

"An Olympic official said the decibel level during the Taylor fight hit 113.7, the highest at the Games so far - surpassing the cycling finals at the velodrome and not far behind the 140 decibel roar of a jet engine. "I've never experienced an atmosphere like this before. I knew it was going to be great but it took me by surprise a small bit. It's a privilege to box for them, as well as my country," Taylor told reporters. "It was always going to be a tough contest, Ireland against Great Britain. I couldn't let her beat me."
