Amanda Serrano Welcomes Rematch As Katie Taylor Enters Touching Distance Of 82,000 Croke Park Dream


Katie Taylor BEATS Carabajal To Set Up Dream Irish Homecoming

Women’s boxing’s P4P#1 Katie Taylor moved to 22-0 and retained her undisputed lightweight titles with a dominant 10-round points decision over Argentina’s previously unbeaten Karen Elizabeth Carabajal.

The Irish star attempted to force a stoppage early on and managed to catch Carabajal clean multiple times but around the halfway point, she realised that she wasn’t going to get the tough South American out and would have to settle for a distance win.

Tayor won by scores 100-91, 99-91, and 98-92 in front of an electric 7,000 crowd at the OVO Arena, Wembley that were ecstatic to be in her presence.

However, this was always a keep-busy fight with fight fans eyeing two things for Taylor in the aftermath: a rematch with Amanda Serrano and a dream homecoming for her beloved Irish supporters at the 82,000-capacity Croke Park Stadium in Dublin, Ireland.

Much to the delight of those in attendance, promoter Eddie Hearn insisted that “It’s time to return to Ireland. Whoever it is, Ireland has to be next. We want to give Ireland a sporting event they’ll never forget”.

Taylor reiterated those plans and stated she would want to meet Serrano at Croke Park. Serrano tweeted soon after “Congratulations @KatieTaylor 2023 We Dance AGAIN”, seemingly accepting the Taylor rematch in Ireland.

Despite this, boxing negotiations are never that easy especially with Eddie Hearn suing Serrano’s promoter Jake Paul for a sum in excess of $100,000,000. Luckily for Irish fans, Hearn stated that whoever is the opponent, Ireland would be NEXT for Katie Taylor.

Other opponents could include 3-belt 130-pound champion Alycia Baumgardner, and the winner of the undisputed 140-pound matchup between Chantelle Cameron and Jessica McCaskill.
