One of the biggest fights in female boxing history is due to take place this Saturday when Katie Taylor faces Amanda Serrano.
Taylor, the undisputed lightweight world champion, is putting her titles on the line against seven-division world champion Serrano. The super fight is being referred to as a watershed moment in female boxing.
Katie Taylor v Amanda Serrano is due to take place on Saturday 30th April.
The fight is set to begin around 10pm local time, which will be roughly 3am GMT on Sunday 1st May.
The bout is set to headline Madison Square Garden in New York City. It will be the first time ever that a female boxing match has been the headline act at the iconic venue. Both women have fought at the venue previously however, winning twice each.
The fight is available to watch on TV channel and streaming service DAZN, which is £7.99 for a monthly subscription.
Amanda Serrano is narrow favourite for the contest, priced up at 4/6, while Taylor is an 11/10 shot and the draw is currently in at 10/1.
The fight, which consists of 10 two minute rounds as the majority of female boxing matches do, is 1/3 to go the distance and currenlty 9/4 to be ended before the 20 minutes are up.
Katie Taylor's undisputed lightweight titles are on the line so the WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO and the Ring straps are up for grabs.
Serrano is a seven division world champion but as she is moving from featherweight division, where she is WBC and WBO title holder, none of her belts are on the line.
The Irishwoman is ranked by The Ring as the pound-for-pound best female boxer in the world while Puerto Rican Serrano is ranked third on the same list.
Katie Taylor has a perfect record of 20 wins from her 20 professional fights. Six of those victories have come by way of knockout and she has been the undisputed lightweight champion of the world since beating Delfine Persson in June 2019, also at Madison Square Garden. Her latest win came over Firuza Sharipova in Liverpool in December last year.
Amanda Serrano has a record of 42 wins, one draw and one defeat from her 44 professional fights. Her only defeat came in 2012 to Frida Wallberg and her draw came in 2009 to Ela Nunez.
