Earlier this November Lena Taylor 4-0, 3 KO’s) continued her undefeated streak in her quest to become the top female fighter in the world when she took on and defeated Kandyce Williams in Arizona. Taylor put a lot of hard work in the gym leading up to her fight but says it was her humbleness that ensured her the victory.
“Quite frankly I operate from a biblical standpoint,” Taylor told Tha Boxing Voice. “Luke 14:11’For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.’ I focused on improving my skills, came with a humble heart, and I was rewarded.”
Since getting the victory over Williams, there have been several opportunities that have come up for Taylor. Opportunities to fight in Georgia and New York are possible, and she wants to get the best fight possible to advance her skills as a fighter and to push her career forward.
“There is a few fighters in New York that they are interested in me fighting. They definitely are looking to take me to the next level so I will see who they come up with. After this last fight, I have been called regarding a few other fights, so I am weighing my options. I’ll be posting my next fight on my Facebook (LenaTheBoxer) and Instagram (Lena_The Boxer) page. So keep a look out for them.”
Taylor prepares for the toughest fight possible no matter whoever is standing in front of her in the ring. She, in turn, prepares herself to be the most difficult opponent possible for her opponent so no matter who she faces, it will not be easy for them.
“I don’t think about what kind of fighter my opponent is. That is giving someone more mental time then they deserve. Kandyce was yesterday, tomorrow there will be someone else. In preparing for each fight, I make the assumption that I am fighting the Goliath of the boxing world, and I train for that fight. That way whoever is in front of me is getting THEIR most difficult opponent and not vice versa.”
