PlayXPlay episode 6: Katie Taylor debate, Serena Williams loss and the World Cup


Katie Taylor is the undisputed lightweight champion of the world.

There was controversy around her win over Delfine Persoon, with many pundits scoring it a draw or a win for the Belgian but the fight was mightily close regardless of some of the discourse.

On Monday’s episode of PlayXPlay, Jenny Murphy is joined by Jacqui Hurley and Lydia Des Dolles to discuss Saturday night’s fight and Taylor’s standing in Irish sports history.

On the menu too is Serena Williams’ French Open exit and the women’s World Cup coming to RTÉ and TG4.

General media coverage is talked about and the relationship between athletes and journalists is dissected.
