She is the undisputed lightweight champion, she won an Olympic medal in her amateur career and since she entered the sport, victories have been the only thing she has known. Whatever happens on Saturday night, her story is already written as one of the greatest fighters in history and no one can take that away from her.
But for all her success, Serrano’s ghost has haunted her practically since she started. While Katie has been breaking down barriers and achieving greatness, the name of the Puerto Rican has been sounding like her obvious opponent and an obstacle she should overcome to increase her greatness, according to some experts.
After several attempts, the fight between the two finally took place. A fight that is not only gigantic for them as protagonists but also for women’s boxing in general.
Taylor will fight at the Madison Square Garden, the biggest market against her nemesis, with the possibility for her legacy to expand, even more, if that is possible.
Her history is of greatness and no matter what happens she will stay there but it is undeniable that she will have a big challenge and something to prove on Saturday night’s fight. Olympus is waiting for the Irishwoman.
