Taylor and Serrano broke ratings records

The bout between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano had generated expectations like very few fights in women’s boxing. Two of the best fighters of the moment faced each other last Saturday, for all the lightweight belts of the major organizations and under an unparalleled atmosphere.

The commercial and promotional success was guaranteed by the public expectation of the fight and a large worldwide audience, as well as a great attendance at the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York. 

All the work was already done and it was up to them to give the show that the public was asking for. Doubts arose because throughout history there have been fights of great expectation whose development is not as exciting as expected yet Taylor and Serrano gave one of the best fights in history. 

Taylor’s victory was hard fought, she had to work hard, use all her tools, hit with everything, dodge and even survive a fifth round in which it looked like she might lose by knockout. The Irishwoman was in the debate about the best current fighter but after her victory and the way she got it, she is automatically included in the debate about the best fighter of all time. 

Taylor entered the ring to kill or be killed, she was determined to win and she got it at all costs in a fight full of action and excitement. 

Serrano was not far behind and came out to fight aggressively. She held nothing back and made it clear that her defeat had nothing to do with lack of effort or courage. At all times she went forward despite receiving the hard counterattacks of Taylor and on several occasions managed to put the champion in trouble with the misfortune of not having been able to finish her.

What happened in the ring was completely in line with what was expected of the fight. A confrontation that left the whole boxing world satisfied and whose rematch is expected. A before and after for boxing in general.
