After years of anticipation, fans can’t wait for these two gladiators to go toe-to-toe. Without a doubt, Taylor has cemented her legacy as the biggest star in female boxing. The Olympic gold medalist and two-weight world champion has long dazzled fans with her lightning hand speed and boxing IQ. But throughout her career, she’s lacked the dance partner to create an occasion of this magnitude. But now she has it.

Serrano has captured world titles in seven different divisions and has the power to put an end to the fight at any second.

Therefore, this battle is one that boxing aficionados can’t afford to miss. So we’ve got you covered on all the information you need to witness the occasion.

The collision between two of the best in the game could’ve taken place anywhere in the world. But for a battle so iconic, the promoters needed a historic venue, hence the decision to book Madison Square Garden.

The New York arena is not only dripping in prestige, but it also allows the huge Irish and Puerto Rican contingents in the area to flock in and support their own.

However, with the fight taking place in the States, UK fans will have to set their alarms early to catch the main event.

But on the bright side, with the contest going down on the West Coast, they’ll get to witness the bout way earlier than they would have had it been arranged for Vegas. The two boxers will meet in the ring at 3 AM in the early hours of Sunday, May 1.

In 2021, he signed a five-year deal with DAZN and this weekend, he will bring the network a guaranteed subscription booster.

Although the bulk of the attention is on the main event, there are a plethora of other fights for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

But the one that’s really got boxing enthusiasts salivating is the battle between former world champions, Jessie Vargas and Liam Smith.

The pair have long wanted to settle their differences, and now they finally have the chance. However, fans aren’t entirely sure which way this one will go. While the American has the skills to pay the bills, his Liverpudlian rival possesses a significant size advantage, and after just beating Anthony Fowler in a Merseyside derby, the momentum is on his side.
