Katie Taylor was awarded the World Boxing Association’s (WBA) Female Boxer of the Month award in November after retaining her lightweight title in her bout against Spain’s Miriam Gutierrez, while American Kali Reis was given an Honorable Mention for her victory over Kandi Wyatt.

Women’s boxing is currently experiencing a great moment and the Irish boxer is one of the faces of the sport in the world. On November 14, Taylor defeated Gutierrez by unanimous decision to retain her WBA unified championship for the ninth time at Wembley Arena.

Despite the pause due to the pandemic, Katie has had a great year and has been able to fight twice to close the calendar as owner of the WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO belts in a clear show of dominance at 135 pounds.

The 34-year-old fighter has been the monarch of the pioneer organization since October 28, 2017, when she won the black and gold belt against Anahí Sánchez. Since then, she has had a spectacular career in which she was able to make her debut in the United States and be recognized around the world.

As for Reis, she won the vacant super lightweight title on November 6, in Florida, by defeating Wyatt by decision, in a great fight. This is why the WBA awarded her an Honorable Mention.

Along with the awards, the November WBA female rankings have been published, which can be reviewed in the corresponding section of the website.
