Amanda Serrano expresses contentment, but affirms improbable rematch with Katie Taylor

Amanda Serrano recently gave an interview where she voiced her opinion that her business with Katie Taylor has likely concluded. The two fought for the unified lightweight title in Madison Square Garden in April 2022, with Taylor coming out on top in a 10-round classic fight that was dubbed the biggest women’s boxing match ever. They were then scheduled for a re-match in Dublin on May 20, but Serrano was forced out due to an injury, and Taylor fought Chantelle Cameron for her junior welterweight titles instead, resulting in a majority decision loss for Taylor.

When asked if Taylor’s loss killed talk of a rematch between the two, Serrano said, “Definitely, I think it did… Losing hurts. It does. It sucks big time. And it being home must have hurt her a lot more. I’m just hoping she can mentally be ready for the rematch.” Serrano believes that the re-match may be delayed if Taylor beats Cameron, which Serrano thinks is unlikely. However, if Taylor does win, a rematch may be on the cards.

Serrano is not keen on fighting Taylor again, stating that their rematch is off the table if Taylor loses. She does not believe that it is a good fight and has other plans for her career. She is the undisputed featherweight champion after unifying those belts with wins over Sarah Mahfoud and Erika Cruz. Serrano is not all that concerned with avenging her loss against Taylor, as she believes that she won the fight.

In Serrano’s opinion, the Taylor fight was a great night for women’s boxing, and she is content with her career. She has put years of hearing about Taylor behind her and is at peace with the outcome of their fight. Serrano’s career will continue later this summer when she defends her titles in her rematch against Heather Hardy. She plans to head back home soon and headline in Puerto Rico as the undisputed champion, although she does not know who her opponent will be.

In conclusion, Serrano believes that her business with Taylor has likely concluded because of Taylor’s loss. She does not believe that a rematch will be on the cards if Taylor loses. Instead, Serrano is focused on defending her titles and headlining in Puerto Rico as the undisputed champion.
