Finally, the time has come for Amanda Serrano and Katie Taylor to share the ring in what has been billed as the biggest fight in the history of women’s boxing.
“It’s the biggest fight out there – not only in women’s boxing but in the whole sport,” Taylor said earlier this week.
In one corner, there is a nine-division champion with 30 knockouts and the backing of one of the most prominent names in the sport today. Meanwhile, a two-division champion, olympic gold medalist and national hero sits in the other. Not to mention, Laila, Claressa Shields and many of the greatest fighters in recent memory will be situated ringside. To top it all off, it’s going down in the same venue that hosted the first fight between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. Simply put, it doesn’t get bigger than this.
