She had labelled this the biggest night of her life, a big claim for a five-time world amateur champion and the 2012 Olympic gold medal victor.
By the tenth round the result was obvious though, and the judges all awarded Taylor the win on a score of 99-90.
Ireland's golden girl Katie Taylor thrilled millions of Irish around the world tonight as she became world champion in her very first 12 months in the pro ranks.
It is understood that a homecoming in Dublin is in play for 2018 as is an increased presence in the United States - of which over 30 million Irish-Americans call home. She strutted into the ring with confidence and started quickly, landing several right hands in the opening two-minute round.
The 26-year-old tipped the scales one pound over the limit and was given a further two hours to successfully make 9st 9lb but could not do so.
But two rapid-fire right hands in the fifth summed up all that Taylor was about as she maintained exquisite accuracy, notably with the right hand.
And she proved the loss of her belt had not dented her pride as she survived another beating in the third round and raced eagerly back for more and had the audacity to tag Taylor with a couple of punches of her own.
The cut above her eye failed to deter her late on as a five-shot combination found the target in the ninth.
It may not have been in Ireland where most of her fans would have loved to have seen it. Sanchez got to her feet, though, and fought her way to the end of the second round.
She belongs on the same stage as Anthony Joshua.
The fight never really looked to be out of Taylor's control though, and by the sixth round she was in complete control.
But throughout the contest Taylor had the edge in power and variety.
The Irishman is now 7-0 in her career, but has blown through every opponent put in front of her.
But there were signals also of the dangers at the highest level.
But overall, a performance of great credit, well received by the huge crowd.
