Katie Taylor has arrived home to huge crowds at Dublin Airport.

She defeated of Belgian Delfine Persoon at New York's Madison Square Garden over the weekend.

The undisputed lightweight champion took pictures with fans and signed hundreds of autographs.

Katie Taylor's manager says an immediate rematch against Delfine Persoon is unlikely.

The Belgian boxer plans to lodge an official appeal after her defeat at Madison Square Garden on Saturday.

Wicklow County Council is now considering immortalising Taylor in a statue in her hometown of Bray.

Councillor Joe Behan is behind the idea: 'It's just fantastic that she has reached the pinnacle of her professional career as well as having been the Olympic gold medal champion aswell'.
