Eddie Hearn reveals that Jake Paul could play a huge role in making Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano happen
Jake Paul and Eddie Hearn could deliver a monster fight for Katie Taylor in 2022.
The biggest fight in women's boxing history could happen next year.
Katie Taylor is undoubtedly the biggest star in the female fight game at the moment, but every pugilist needs a rival, and Amanda Serrano is the biggest threat to the Bray boxer's crown.
The two warriors have been touted for a showdown since Taylor beat Serrano's sister in 2018, but no one expected that YouTuber Jake Paul would have an important role in getting this over the line.
Serrano signed with Jake Paul's Most Valuable Promotions earlier this year, which means that Taylor's promoter, Eddie Hearn, needs to broker a deal with the online sensation.
Eddie Hearn admits that fighting Amanda Serrano next has always been the plan for Katie Taylor.
"She always wants to fight," said Hearn "The plan, 100%, is Amanda Serrano at Madison Square Garden.
"That is the biggest fight in women's boxing. Katie has been wanting that fight for a long time. You know how difficult it is with these mega-fights, but Katie has fought two mandatory challengers in the past 13 weeks, they're out of the way.
"It's now time to make this historic fight at Madison Square Garden. That's it, and that's the biggest fight of all time in women's boxing.
Amanda Serrano's promotor, Jake Paul, wants to make the Taylor fight happen.
Hearn has worked with the YouTuber before, and reveals that he has already been in talks with Jake Paul and his promotional team.
"We were at Madison Square Garden a couple of weeks ago. They loved the fight. Jake Paul, Most Valuable Promotions, those guys loved the fight. It's their chance to be involved in history as well.
"Amanda Serrano fights next week. We wish her the best of luck. They now have the contract; they're reviewing the contract.
"If she gets through her next fight, I'm almost certain that in April we'll see Taylor versus Serrano at Madison Square Garden."
Just like that, the biggest fight in female boxing history is down to negotiations between Matchroom's Eddie Hearn and social media star Jake Paul - let's hope they get it over the line.
