Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has offered his two cents regarding the Katie Taylor vs Amando Serrano 2 fallout, the postponement of the fight with the inclusion of Conor McGregor and how his involvement is going to spice things up between ‘The Notorious’ and Youtuber Jake Paul.
Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano is regarded as one of the greatest women’s boxing matches of all time. The fight held on April 30th, 2022 had fans on the edge of their seats. Following Katie’s close victory over Serrano, fans have been waiting eagerly for a rematch. Now that the rematch, which was confirmed to be held on May 20th, 2023, had fallen out, Eddie Hearn had his thoughts on the postponed fight which includes a few interesting things that fans could look forward to.
In a recent interview with ‘TheMacLife’, when asked if he had plans to patiently wait till September to make the Taylor vs Serrano fight, the boxing promoter said “That was the plan from me, but not Katie Taylor.” He added “I expected her to take an easy defense. She wanted Chantelle Cameron, she’s wanted to try and become a two-division undisputed champion.” “A lot of people believe that’s an even tougher fight than Amanda Serrano” concluded Hearn.
When questioned on the marketability of the Taylor vs Serrano fight apart from the ‘extra security’ that is needed to separate McGregor and Paul due to their rivalry, Hearn said “Conor’s involvement, any level would be great and obviously him and Jake Paul on opposite corners would be even more special.“
