Understand what â€œgreatest everâ€ means ?
So twenty years is not enough? Is that it? You cannot qualify if your sport is only twenty years?
It doesn't matter if you are the GOAT amateur and well on your way to being the GOAT professional in the sport?
I think you need to look a bit closer. Nobody from this country has ever dominated a sport like Katie Taylor. It doesn't matter if it's twenty years old or 100 years old, at the very top level it's extremely difficult. Katie Taylor first became World Champ at amateur level in 2006 and she's been on top pretty much ever since whether as an amateur or a pro boxer.
There's only a handful of people in all of sports who have been as successful as she has.
You can take points off for the age of the sport but she's still Ireland's greatest sportsperson for being so great for so long.
