Taylor has been a figurehead of women's boxing ever since her amateur days and is now at the heart of its meteoric rise in the pro game.
Now living and training in CT in the US, Taylor is set to fight Cindy Serrano this Saturday at Boston's TD Garden.
Serrano will try and entice Taylor into a war and given her experience she will be well-versed in the darker art of pro boxing.
Taylor will defend her WBF and IBF lightweight titles against former featherweight champion Serrano in what has become the de facto headline fight of the card.
Taylor and her dad Peter were long time trainer and fighter duo until a fall out happened which led to her surprise defeat in the Olympics and subsequent turning professional thereafter.
The Irish woman was due to be second on the bill to Billy Joe Saunders' WBO middleweight decider with Demetrius Andrade, however since Saunders failed a drugs test that fight has been scrapped.

It could also be a night to remember for Belfast's James Tennyson who can all but guarantee his financial future if he manages to wrestle the IBF World super featherweight title from American Tevin Farmer, who only secured it in Australia in March.
However, at times when it would be more sensible to allow her boxing skills dictate, she likes to get involved in battles, such as in the latter stages of her fight against Bustos when the two fighters stood in the centre of the ring and exchanged blows, much to the delight of the crowd.
Where can I watch the fight? "I had a great training camp and feel in great shape". "I'm in great shape, I'm excited for the fight, I'm hyped and I'm amped", Serrano said. There's definitely no shortage of fights in our flyweight division, which is fantastic.
Speaking at Thursday's press conference, Taylor said: "This is a home from home for me in Boston".
Serrano is stepping up a weight to take on Taylor, moving up to 135lbs, but she's not overly concerned by that and is preparing to go the full ten rounds with Taylor.
