It's a strange one. Here in Ireland there's an increase in young girls considering Katie Taylor their role model which I don't think is pleasing parents due to what her sport is.

However I think she does come across as a role model not just because she's humble but because when she set herself a goal she didn't let the barrier of women's boxing not being an Olympic sport deter her from that but rather worked on changing it.

The likes of Louis, Anthony etc have worked as hard for their own sports so I think they've earned some relaxation. As long as it doesn't go to their heads but I can't see it for Louis and Anthony (I don't know the other so can't really say for him).
