Taylor has been as humble as usual heading into this historic fight, claiming it’s a 50-50 bout.

“Amanda Serrano is a fantastic fighter, she’s a great champion and she’s not here for no reason. She deserves this opportunity as well. She’s been pioneering her own way and that’s why this fight is the best fight in female boxing history.

It’s definitely a 50-50 fight, I think a lot of people will have me, and a lot of people will have her before the fight.

I love being involved in these type of fights.”

Co-promoter of the fight Jake Paul believes Serrano will have too much for Taylor, claiming she offers a similar skill set to Delphine Persoon, arguably Taylor’s toughest opponent to date.

“I think it put a lot of miles on Taylor’s boxing odometer, and the difference between Persoon and Serrano is that Amanda goes to the body a lot more, while Persoon was headhunting, and it gave Katie a lot of trouble and arguably some of those rounds should have gone the opposite way.

So I think what we are going to see is a very similar match-up stylistically, except I think Amanda is going to slow Katie down a little bit more.”
