There’s no doubting Taylor’s superstar status within the boxing world and amazingly she’s using her popularity to shine light on her deep-rooted love for God.

The 36-year-old is a devout Christian and has spoken about her faith on numerous occasions.

In a 2021 interview with the Irish Times, Taylor spoke about her dependence on God to get her through tough times:

“I actually don’t know how people get through difficult moments without God in their life. That’s my anchor, my rock and there are definitely times I cling onto the word of God.”

There are also times in which Taylor has wanted to share the word of God, most notably during her ring walks.

The world champion has become known for walking out to Christian worship music in a powerful show of both dependence on God, but also wanting others to know where she finds her strength.

“Death is defeated, the King is alive.”

Katie Taylor’s ring walk music vs Chantelle Cameron

Taylor’s ring walk music for her first fight against Chantelle Cameron was a song called ‘More than Able’ by Elevation Worship, a music group formed by Elevation Church in North Carolina. 

In “More Than Able,” Elevation Worship reminds us that no matter the mountains we face, God always provides a way to climb them.

In life, there will always be problems we face that will seem impossible. Situations where we feel hopeless like there is no way to pull out a win.

For every chapter of our lives, there will be a seemingly unscalable mountain that God is asking us to climb. These mountains can make us want to throw in the towel when we stand at their bases and look up, but in every one of them, God provides a way up for us.

Katie Taylor’s ring walk music vs Karen Carabajal

Taylor’s ring walk music against Karen Carabajal was a song called ‘LION’ by Elevation Worship, a music group formed by Elevation Church in North Carolina. 

The song is inspired by the verses in Genesis 49 and Revelation 5 referencing the Lion of the tribe of Judah.

In the Bible, the Lion represents Jesus’ lineage to the tribe of Judah, descendants of Jacob, and his prophesied victory on the Cross.

Revelation‬ ‭5:5‬ ‭says: And one of the elders said to me, ‘Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.

Ultimately the song points to Jesus’ victory over death on the cross, a truth that is at the absolute heart of Christian faith and a message that Taylor wants to spread before her fights.

Katie Taylor’s ring walk music vs Amanda Serrano

Taylor’s ring walk music for her biggest fight against Amanda Serrano was a song called ‘Awake My Soul’ by Hillsong Worship.

Hillsong Worship leader Brooke Ligertwood revealed she wrote the song to remind believers that God is in control.

The chorus is inspired by Psalm 57, where the Psalmist encourages those in times of trials to step out in faith and worship God: ‘Awake my soul and sing Sing His praise aloud’.

Brooke explained: “It’s a reminder to open our mouths. What we sing and speak out loud, our soul hears. One of the reasons we fast, as believers, is that we remind our body who is in charge. My spirit is yielded to the Lord. When we open our mouths and pray and sing, we’re reminding our body that God’s in charge.”

The song has surely been a huge encouragement to Taylor, who must often feel the weight of such a demanding sport.

Katie Taylor’s ring walk music vs Natasha Jonas

Taylor’s ring walk music for her domestic clash against Natasha Jonas was a song called ‘Champion’ by Bethel Music.

In her own right, Taylor is one of the greatest champions to have ever boxed. However, this song isn’t about her achievements. It’s about a God who makes his people champions through his immense grace and love.

Bethel Music worship leader Dante Bowe revealed “the inspiration for ‘Champion’ came from a conversation with friends about identity, what the Father has done for us, and our awareness of that.”

Bowe explains. “This song is personal, not just for me, but for anyone who’s ever felt the pressure to measure up or has felt lesser than.

“We all, at some point in our lives, walk through a season of insecurity and doubt in what the Lord has already spoken.

“Even when we know what He says, it seems unfair for a good God to still esteem and give power to those who were once sinners.

“Once we understand His Lordship and Kingship, we realize just how powerful we are as joint heirs with Christ. We didn’t work for it. We didn’t earn it. It’s just simply our inheritance.”

It’s a beautiful reminder that those who trust in God aren’t defined by their achievements. Win, lose, or draw, Taylor’s faith assures her that God has accomplished ultimate victory by sending Jesus so that believers can one day live in a perfect eternity.
