New doc looks at the behind-the-scenes life of Ireland’s favorite sportsperson
The trailer for the new Irish documentary on Katie Taylor was released this week.
‘KATIE’ promises a no holds barred inside look at the life of Ireland’s favorite sportsperson, boxer Katie Taylor.
The documentary follows Taylor through her shockingly early exit at the Rio 2016 Olympics. In 2012, Taylor brought home the gold from London in the first-ever inclusion of women’s boxing at the event.
After turning professional in 2016, Taylor has enjoyed an undefeated career.
Now living and training in Connecticut in the US, Taylor is set to fight Cindy Serrano this Saturday at Boston’s TD Garden.
In an interview with IrishCentral, Taylor said that she did not get final sign-off on the documentary, so we can be assured that the film is an honest look at her life.
Check out the trailer here:
The film, directed by Ross Whitaker, won the Best Irish Documentary award at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh.
The film hits Irish theaters on October 26th.
