An ugly swelling was under Persoon’s eye by the second round, a sign of Taylor’s hurtful work, but the Bray boxer had to withstand a thudding right hand in the third.

Persoon was trying to tempt Taylor into another reckless battle, ramming in crude shots during the fourth.

A classy hook from Taylor was answered by a booming right from Persoon in a frenetic fifth.

Taylor stood and traded in the sixth, perhaps a little too long, as she was caught by a thumping right, and Persoon pumped out punches relentlessly in the seventh.

Into the ninth, Taylor tried to stall Persoon’s charge with a right hand, and her persistent, more precise work was rewarded on the scorecards after the 10th.

“It’s never easy against Delfine, she is relentless,” Taylor said. “I knew I had to dig deep. I boxed better last time. I stuck to my boxing more. That got me through. I hit her with clean shots but she attacked all the time.

“What an amazing two fights for women’s boxing. I was more convincing tonight. I got a convincing win.”

Persoon said: “This time I respect the result. The weight was too much. I ate, ate, ate but didn’t have the power to hurt her.

“I could not hurt her. And if you can’t hurt her, she is technical and runs around. You have to hurt her.

“She deserves the win. I respect her. I’ve got no problem.”
