Tayla has some style; the left that did the damage was a ripper.  Her reaction when her opponent went down was interesting, a bit like checking on a footy opponent that you've just crunched.  She then went to the neutral corner with her guard up.  Perhaps she thought the ref might have a crack at her.

She's often said that she lacks aggression and that killer instinct, both in boxing and in footy.

She says she feels bad for her opponent and doesn't want to hurt them. Kinda got into the wrong sports for that.

You saw it in her footy, she polaxed someone and immediately went up to her to check if she was alright and apologised. You saw it again there.

She's a good girl who can seriously do some damage if/when she wants too. She is a Brian Lake, we need to find our Rocket Eade. If we can unlock that, then the sky is the limit for her.

Tayla didn’t hold back when she had her opponent at her mercy.

Unfortunately, it seems that women’s boxing dishes up as many mismatches as men’s boxing and that’s not good for a fighter’s development or moving on to the international stage as Tayla intends to do.  I wouldn’t like to see her get the [email protected] belted out of her because her camp overestimated her ability.  She needs a couple of fights against evenly matched opponents to see where she is at and whether international boxing is realistic.

Quick hands, the opponent was more slapping. That first knock down did the damage, Tayla knew from the contact she had hurt her opponent.

She obviously got the word from her corner during the count, because on the restarted she came out without mercy!

All these sports in their infancy are highly variable in skill levels due to the very low participation rates, they'll improve if allowed to by the critics. You only have to go and watch a MMA, Taekwondo or Karate tournament to know that is self-evident. Actually women's boxing was stronger a decade ago, MMA and UFC have robbed a lot of talent from the boxing circuit, they can be instantly on a full-time wage and boxing has only just woken up to this fact as they have been a bit stuck up about it for a long time! Mayweather cleaning up McGregor only reinforced many of those prejudices for those looking for confirmation. They are not laughing anymore as money is leeching out of the sport at a great rate of knots! The less wealthy it becomes the less professional it becomes and it's susceptibility to dodgy deals and dodgy operators grows.

Tayla's opponent looked tentative and fearful of her, and Tayla sort of proved her correct, even though the skills were a bit ordinary to watch.

Tayla looked a bit unprofessional, in that she basically didn't defend against counter-punches, so it looked like a slog fest, but she probably didn't have to she was being hit with a feather-duster. But it's a bad habit to get into, you should always assume the opponent has a hidden weapon.
