Katie Taylor says she has no intention of retiring form the sport following the capture of an Olympic Gold medal.
The fighter's father and coach Peter had stated his desire for the 26-year-old to retire after the games however she says she will fight on and will consider a professional career.
“I don’t really know much about women’s professional boxing. The competition at amateur boxing is probably a lot better," she said in a press conference last night. “But if somebody comes and offers me a contract for professional boxing, I’ll consider it."
Her immediate plan is to take a few weeks off but the Bray woman insists nothing will change when she returns.
"I'll just continue to do what I've always done. Nothing is going to change me. I'll take a few weeks off and when I get back training I'll do what I've always done and take each fight as it comes along.
"I won't be looking too far ahead. There'll always be pressure…it's been like that since I've started boxing so it's not going to change for me really."
