Undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor will defend her titles against Amanda Serrano in a twelve round bout on 30th April in New York at the Madison Square Garden. Consequently, there is a lot of hype around the fight as these two female athletes are unarguably the greatest boxers of this generation.
Moreover, Jake Paul and Eddie Hearn promoting this fight have created a lot of interest among fight fans. Consequently, the response for the pre-sale from fight fans has been historic. British promoter Eddie Hearn announced on his Twitter page that Taylor vs Serrano has become the second biggest pre-ticket sale in the history of this sport.

Will the Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano title fight sell out the Madison Square Garden?
The second biggest pre-sale in 140 years of boxing is a huge achievement and a great sign for women’s boxing. Because more female boxers will get inspired and pursue boxing seriously. Subsequently, after the pre-sale made such big numbers, Chris Mannix who is a journalist at Sports Illustrated commented that there is a high possibility that Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano will sell out MSG.
At this rate, the possibility of Taylor-Serrano selling out MSG — something even the promoters were skeptical about as recently as this week — is very real. https://t.co/dnzxxA9o6F

The general ticket sale for this undisputed title bout will begin at noon. Therefore it would be interesting to see whether this fight manages to sell out the iconic MSG. Nevertheless, this is a huge achievement for women’s boxing. And a major credit goes to Jake Paul and Eddie Hearn for promoting this fight brilliantly.
