Boxing Championship: Katie Taylor will defend her undisputed title against Amanda Serrano at Madison Square Garden on April 30.

In one of female boxing’s biggest ever evenings, they will become the first women to headline at the renowned New York venue.

Claressa Shields makes her UK debut against Ema Kozin on February 5, knowing that a win will set up a mega-fight with Savannah Marshall in 2022, which will be a watershed moment in women’s boxing.

“This is a fight I’ve wanted for a long, long time and I’m just delighted for it to finally take place because these are the sort of bouts I’m in the sport for,” Taylor said of her rematch with Serrano.

“This fight has been talked about for years, and there have been occasions when I wondered if it would ever happen.

“When I first got pro, I wanted to be a part of big events like this, so to headline at Madison Square Garden in such a big fight is truly the pinnacle of the sport. It’s such a famous stadium that has hosted so many important moments in boxing, and I have no doubt that this will be another.”

Serrano explained: “It’s a dream come true to be able to headline Madison Square Garden and do so against Katie Taylor, one of the best fighters of all time.

“My only boyfriend has been boxing since I was a young girl. I’ve devoted my life to him, and this event proves that devotion was well worth it. On April 30, I will make history for myself, my team, my family, Puerto Rico, every Latina and Latino, and all women throughout the world.”
