Amanda Serrano and Katie Taylor will be ‘eating good’ following their super-fight on Apr. 30th.
The two female boxers have been pitted together in a high-stakes contest, that is being deemed the biggest fight in women’s boxing history. The scene has been set for Madison Square Garden, promoted by Eddie Hearn and the one and only Jake Paul.
According to Paul, this match-up between Serrano and Taylor has ‘biggest fight of 2022’ written all over it.
“Arguably could be the biggest fight of the year,” Paul told TMZ. “The history that this is making— first time women have ever headlined Madison Square Garden, which is massive. Two of the pound-for-pound best going at it. This is what boxing needs more of. I am counting down the days, we are getting closer. I’m getting more and more excited.
“Obviously Amanda Serrano is under Most Valuable Promotions. We’re rooting for her big time, but this is gonna be a tough fight. It could really go either way. I just think Amanda has a little bit of that edge. I’m more excited, every day that goes by.”
Money, Money, Money
With the women’s fight being of historic proportions, it only makes sense that the paycheck will be on another level as well. ‘The Problem Child’ says the payout will be ‘unprecedented’ for both Serrano and Taylor.
“I think it will shine a light that women’s boxing is just as good as men’s boxing…” Paul continued. “These women are awesome. They’re legit, they’re savages. You’re gonna see a war April 30th. I think this is gonna open up a lot of doors for women’s boxing in general.
“They’re both getting a 7-figure payday, which is unprecedented and will knock so many doors for the women that deserve this pay over the next couple of years. So this is just historic for the sport in general.”
