Olympic gold medallist Katie Taylor has launched into a scathing twitter rant after a clubmate of hers was controversially beaten in the Leinster Intermediate semi-finals last night at the National Stadium.

Barry Keegan was beaten by Niall Cooney last night in the 85kg division and Taylor vented her fury at the judges decision stating that the judges involved had "no integrity".

“How many boxers have left the sport coz of bad decisions? Last night my clubmate Barry Keegan was absolutely robbed at Leinster Intermediates," she wrote on her verified twitter account.

“Not his opponents fault but some of the judges need to be assessed and accounted for. They’ve no integrity.

“His opponent got a public warning, a count & got outboxed for the 3 rounds. How they could give the fight against him is beyond me…..”

"I hope those judges can look themselves in the mirror this morning.”
