When is Taylor vs. Serrano 2?

0

There weren’t too many authentic fight fans losing sleep over the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson fight being postponed last week. However, those same fans are still interested in the rematch between undisputed super lightweight champ Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano that was scheduled to be the co-main event.

As was widely reported, Tyson received medical attention for “an ulcer flare-up” on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles on Sunday. The former heavyweight champ was scheduled to face YouTuber/pro boxer Paul at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on July 20, but the event was understandably postponed.

Given that Tyson will turn 58 on June 30, it’s fair to say that the Paul fight is unstable in terms of the ex-champ’s participation. This recent health scare is ample proof of that.

So, what happens with Taylor vs. Serrano 2? How long should these pound-for-pound stars wait before securing a date and venue for a fight that matters?

The Sporting News looks into what we know about Taylor vs. Serrano 2.

On Friday, it was announced by Most Valuable Promotions that Paul vs. Tyson has been rescheduled for November 15 at the very same AT&T Stadium. The good news for fight fans is that the co-main event will also remain the same.

Taylor and Serrano put on a spectacular show in April 2022 in the first women’s matchup to headline Madison Square Garden. The fight lived up to the buildup with Taylor retaining her undisputed lightweight crown via a hard-fought 10-round split decision.

The sequel will take place five pounds north at super lightweight, with Taylor defending the undisputed title she won from Chantelle Cameron in November of last year. 

When the Paul-Tyson fight was originally set, the Taylor vs. Serrano rematch was a welcome addition to the card. For those who don’t like to indulge in YouTuber matchups and the like, this fight made the event more appealing to hardcore fans.

The Paul vs. Tyson fight is being broadcast by Netflix, which will be entering boxing for the very first time. Having an elite-level matchup between two of the best fighters in the world looked like a very wise business move for the famed streaming service.
