Katie Taylor Super Fight Against Amanda Serrano Set For May

Katie Taylor Super Fight Against Amanda Serrano Set For May

Katie Taylor's highly-anticipated super fight against Amanda Serrano is set to take place on May 2nd at the Manchester Arena.

ESPN's Dan Rafael reports that the bout will be part of the undercard for Dillian White's headlining fight against Alexander Povetkin.

Taylor, already the undisputed world lightweight champion, became a two-weight champion in November when she defeated Christina Linardatou to claim the WBO super-lightweight title.

Serrano, who has a record of 38-1-1, has won titles in a record seven weight divisions. The fight has been labelled the biggest ever in women's boxing.

Taylor, now 15-0, has already faced and defeated Serrano's sister Cindy at the TD Garden in Boston in October 2018. The Bray fighter won that bout by unanimous decision.

Speaking on SiriusXM radio last month, Amanda Serrano got the trash-talk rolling.

"Once I go in there and show, and prove, that I am the best, and go in there and beat Katie Taylor, it’s going to be a different story - they’re going to be talking about me as the golden girl," she said.

"She’s an average woman - she’s a girl. I mean, my trainer, Jordan [Maldonado], saw it when she was in there with my sister.

"She’s average - there’s nothing really to her. She’s not no superhero like everyone paints her to be. Katie Taylor’s just another female fighter."
