Katie Taylor relishing the prospect of Boston’s Irish support

RINGSIDE 27/09/2018

Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing USA’s DAZN rollercoaster heads into Boston on October 20 as Katie Taylor defends her unified world titles on a bumper bill at the TD Garden.

Cindy Serrano will be in the opposite corner as Taylor puts her two lightweight belts on the line.

Top of the bill is the mouth-watering World title clash between two unbeaten stars as England’s BILLY-JOE SAUNDERS puts his WBO Middleweight crown on the line against Rhode Island’s DEMETRIUS ANDRADE.

The biggest star in women’s boxing and Irish favorite, Taylor is certain to be a huge hit amongst the Irish fans in Boston. The WBA and IBF World Lightweight ruler is promising a sensational showdown with Serrano, the Brooklyn-based Puerto Rican WBO Featherweight champ gunning for two-weight World glory.

Taylor, hailing from Bray, Ireland (10-0, 5 KO’s), spoke about defending her WBA and IBF World Lightweight titles against Serrano.

“I love this city and it’s going to be like a homecoming fight for me with all the Irish fans living here,” said Taylor.

“I want to thank Cindy for taking this fight, these are the types of fights that I absolutely relish. It’s going to be a really exciting clash alongside some brilliant fighters on the rest of the bill, I can’t wait.”

Serrano, from Brooklyn, New York but born in Puerto Rico (27-5-3, 10 KO’s) is ready to challenge Taylor.

“Katie is a tremendous fighter and a hard worker so I know it’s going to be a hard fight, but a great fight. I am a great fighter too and not only can we both fight, we look good doing it – and we’re going to prove that on October.
