Irish boxer Katie Taylor has been announced a brand ambassador for Universal Honda Ltd and Castle Garage Honda, Bray, Co Wicklow, writes Trish Whelan.
The Olympic Gold boxing medallist, who is currently the IBF and WBA World Boxing Champion, last week collected her new Honda Civic at Marlfield House in Gorey, Co Wexford, at the launch of the New Honda Civic four door sedan.
Director of Sales and Marketing for Universal Honda Ltd John Saunders said at the hand over “We are absolutely delighted to bring Katie on board as a Honda Ambassador. She is one of Ireland’s most successful athletes ever. With a record breaking amateur career behind her, including multiple world titles and Olympic Gold, she continues her dominance in the professional world. We are really delighted and honoured to welcome Katie and we wish her all the very best in her next title defence in October.”
Derek Bradshaw, Dealer Principal of Castle Garage Bray said “We at Castle Garage are truly honoured to have this association with Katie, one of Ireland’s all-time great sporting heroes. Not only a phenomenal sportswoman but a fantastic role model too. The fact that she is also a local Bray girl makes this association very special for us. We really hope she enjoys driving her new Honda Civic and wish her continued success in the future.”
Speaking of the new partnership, Katie said “I’m delighted to be partnering with Honda and am really looking forward to getting out on the road in the new Civic.”
