Katie Taylor will put her two world titles on the line in Boston against Puerto Rican Cindy Serrano on the 21st of October at 1am.
Demetrius Andrade takes on Walter Kautondokwa in the main event of the card in the US with Taylor’s fight billed as fourth from the top.
The Irish native wants to continue her winning ways as the 5ft 5 lightweight sets her eyes on a 11 fight winning streak since turning pro.
Meet the fighters
Katie Taylor is undoubtedly the face of female boxing. Since turning pro in 2016, after winning Gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games the fighter has been undefeated and become somewhat of a household name in Ireland.
Despite only being a pro for 2 years in that time Taylor has amassed two world titles and in April vowed to “unify all four belts within a year.
In her 10 bouts the 32 year-old has knocked out 50% of her opponents with her manager, Match room sport Tycoon Eddie Hearn highly rating the Bray Native.
“Forget all this men’s boxing and female boxing,” Hearn professed after Taylor’s last win in July.
“She’s one of the biggest stars in the entire sport.
“She’s fighting in the US next. She should be a worldwide star.”
Meanwhile her opponent, 33 year-old Serrano will be hoping to stop Taylor dead in her tracks with the former featherweight undefeated since 2012.
Making her debut in 2003 the Puerto Rican in her 35 bouts has become a local hero in her home nation well known for her ‘Iron Chin’ and ‘fast hands.’ In that time she has knocked out only 29% of her opponents.
How do the pair stack up?
It really has been billed as a battle of chalk and cheese between the “Bray Bomber” and “Checkmate.” Taylor has been billed as “THE highest paid female boxer in history” whilst Serrano has gone on record depicting her struggle making it as a female boxer.
Yet despite her fame it is Taylor who has the physical disadvantage going into the clash with the Puerto Rican an inch taller than her Irish counterpart at 5ft 6 to Taylor’s 5ft 4 frame.
The pair are however near equally matched in terms of reach both tied on 65′ inches.
Taylor is the clear favourite to defend her titles successfully on Sunday morning at the price of 1/25.
Meanwhile her opponent Serrano is a underdog at 10/1 as the Puerto Rican aims to spring a shock victory.
At current the Bookmakers place a draw is at 33/1.
