Katie Taylor calls her fight with Amanda Serrano the biggest fight in boxing history
During the pre-fight press conference, Katie Taylor opined that her fight against Amanda Serrano is possibly the biggest fight in boxing history. “Ever since I turned pro, I had my eyes fixed on two fights, one was Persoon, and the other one was Amanda Serrano. So this is a fight I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time.” She added, “It’s incredible to see how far women’s boxing has gone in just five short years. We are actually headlining at the mecca of boxing Madison Square Garden. It’s being called the biggest fight in boxing history…This is history right here. All of our hard work has finally paid off.”
“I respect Katie Taylor and what she’s done. We’re changing the sport. I am excited to be opening doors. We have to prove who’s the pound-for-pound best because everyone has been asking for it” Amanda Serrano returned the praise.
Taylor has fought Amanda Serrano’s sister Cindy Serrano. The duo shared the boxing ring back in 2018, with Katie Taylor emerging victorious. Needless to say, it’s something that could further motivate Amanda Serrano, who has looked absolutely incredible in her last few fights.
