Arguably the biggest women’s boxing match in history is set to go down on April 30, with undisputed featherlight champion Katie Taylor taking on Amanda Serrano, a world champion across seven weight classes. Adding to the prestige of the event, Taylor and Serrano will battle in the main arena of Madison Square Garden, making them the first two women to ever caption a fight card in the iconic arena.

Taylor (20-0, 6 KO) won the WBA crown in her seventh fight and added the IBF title two fights latterly with a decision over Victoria Bustos. She continued adding belts to her collection with a TKO palm over Rose Volante to capture the WBO title and a maturity decision palm over Delfine Persoon to come WBC champion, making her a four-belt world champion.
The fight with Persoon, as well as their rematch, ranks as one of the most amusing bouts of the once several times, with both women putting on an inconceivable display of durability.
