Katie Taylor made it six European finals in a row as she got the better of Denitsa Eliseeva on Friday.

The Wicklow fighter saw off the Bulgarian - the last woman to beat her back in 2011 - 3-0 as she qualified for a 16th career final.

It was a clinical performance from the odds-on favourite, who will now meet Estelle Mossely for the 60kg medal on Saturday.

"Honoured to be representing Ireland in another European final," the Olympic champion wrote on Twitter.

"Thanks for all the support, it's incredible."

Taylor will not be joined on finals day by compatriot Clare Grace, though.

She was outpointed by England's Stacey Copeland in the 69kg category. The Stockport woman will face Elena Vystropova, who saw off Cristiana Mihaela.
