Conor McGregor fires warning to promoter Eddie Hearn

Conor McGregor has warned Eddie Hearn to look after Katie Taylor after the Irishwoman retained her world titles in Boston.

Taylor outpointed Cindy Serrano to stretch her unbeaten record to 11 fights since turning professional.

And McGregor, who visited his compatriot’s dressing room before the fight – and then met her again afterwards – had words of advice for promoter Hearn.

He wrote on Instagram: "What an honour to watch our very own Katie Taylor live tonight in Boston! This lady epitomizes hard work, passion, drive, and laser like focus! A motivating inspiration!

"Congrats Katie and coach @rosstraining! Promoter Eddie Hearn and manager Brian Peters you both better be making sure our champion is looked after and guided fairly and correctly up that money tree as her activity is constant and consistent.

"This lady is an asset and should be treated as such. We are watching. Great work team Katie!"

Taylor was given the nod by all three judges at ringside who scored the fight 100-90 in her favour.

But the champion was disappointed not to be the first woman to stop Serrano.

"It’s hard when someone is so defensive," she told Sky Sports . "I expected a tough fight but from the get-go she was on the back foot and there to survive the 10 rounds.

"I was trying to get the stoppage but I couldn’t connect with a clean shot. I was a bit careless at times and I couldn’t get the body shots off.

"It was fantastic [to fight in Boston]; the atmosphere was fantastic, it was like a homecoming fight for me."

When McGregor visited Taylor’s dressing room before she walked to the ring, he said: "This will be my first time watching live, I’m very excited." he said. "You are a credit to our country, we’re all with you."

Turning to Taylor’s coach Ross Enamait, he added: "You’re doing a phenomenal job with her, we’re all proud of the two of you. I’ll see you after, I’m here for you Katie, just you."
