“Directed by Ross Whitaker (Unbreakable: The Mark Pollock Story), KATIE follows champion boxer Katie Taylor as she attempts to rebuild her career after a year of turmoil threatened to derail her career.
Katie Taylor has won six amateur European championships, five world amateur championships and is an Olympic Gold Medal winner from the London 2012 Olympic Games. She turned professional after a disastrous campaign at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which saw her crash out in the first round despite being favourite to win. The film unravels the deeply personal reasons behind the career low and shows the champions grit and determination to start over as a professional. Taylor won her first world title within a year and became the first woman in history to headline her own Sky Sports show. She added the IBF title to her WBA crown and is now one of only seven professional women boxers to hold unified titles across the different weight divisions in the sport.”
