One of women’s boxing premier match ups, Amanda Serrano vs Katie Taylor, will be shoved in the back shelf for now.
The unified world lightweight champion Taylor will fight Christina Linardatou for the WBO super-lightweight title, but a Twitter exchange between Taylor’s promoter and Serrano revealed the fight is still scheduled to happen.
Serrano tweeted about the nature of Taylor going up in weight, and the sports promoter/managing director of Matchroom Sport responded to her tweet.
The conversation didn’t cease to end their. It continued down in the comment section.
Women’s Fight News asked Hearn: “how long is the time-frame?” He responded,”by mid march (I.e katie’s next fight) after November 2.”
“We were supposed to be each other’s third fight … Thank God I’m a two-sport athlete, not sitting waiting to do things others’ way,” Serrano replied.
Boxing promoter Hearn and the Puerto Rican southpaw exchanged tweets once more.
Hearn: “No, she is supposed to be your third fight and she will be, and it will be a monster.”
“Oh so the deal [was], we were each other’s third fight? That’s what Lou proposed to me, but I understand in boxing it’s whatever whose paying call,” Serrano replied. “I have legal issues to iron out with Lou [DiBella]. Let’s see how those go.”
Serrano tweeted out on Monday about her return to MMA under the banner of Combate Americas.
The Puerto Rican WBO and WBC featherweight champion fought both of her MMA fights for Combate Americas. She made her MMA debut against Corina Herrera at Combate 20, resulting into a draw.
In October 2018, Serrano defeated Ere Ordoñez via standing rear-naked choke submission in the first round at Combate 26: Mexico vs. USA.
Who would you root for: Serrano or Taylor?
