One of the greatest historical moments in women’s boxing will take place this Saturday at the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York. Katie and Amanda Serrano will meet in defense of Taylor’s World Boxing Association (WBA) lightweight championship and the IBF, WBO and WBC belts in a great fight.
Two of the best fighters the sport has ever seen will fight. Both are living great moments and greatness is the only thing they have always aspired to.
Taylor is the owner of all the 135-pound belts and her professional career has been as good as her amateur career. The London 2012 Olympic medalist has been undefeated since making her debut in pay-per-view boxing and has made herself the queen of the division. For years there has been talk about a possible showdown against Serrano and now everything is ready for that long-awaited fight.
The Puerto Rican is one of the most impressive fighters of all time and her titles in multiple divisions speak for her. She has dominated the sport for years and now she has the challenge she has been waiting for.
The big buzz is already in the air in New York, where there will be several promotional activities this week in the lead up to the fight. Taylor has 20 wins, no losses and 6 knockouts, while Serrano has 42 wins, 1 loss, 1 draw and 30 knockouts.
