Taylor vs. Serrano Rematch Set As Paul vs. Tyson Co-Main Event

The Katie Taylor vs. Amanda Serrano rematch will be featured on the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson card on June 20.

The fight takes place live on Netflix from Arlington, Texas, at the AT&T Stadium as a co-main event attraction. The first fight in 2022 ended in a split decision win for Taylor. The Madison Square Garden clash drew in 19,187, seeing 1.5 million viewers on DAZN. It was the most viewed female boxing fight ever.

The rematch was meant for last year, but Serrano pulled out with an injury. Taylor then faced Chantelle Cameron twice, losing the first fight, before becoming undisputed at 140 in the rematch. Since the Taylor loss, Serrano has won four on the bounce. She was meant to face Nina Meinke in March but withdrew with an eye injury.

“This is the rematch the world has wanted to see and I’m delighted that it’s finally happening. The first fight in New York was obviously an epic occasion and it more than lived up to the billing, and I’m sure the rematch will be no different. I want to thank Matchroom and DAZN for their help in making the fight possible and I’m looking forward to defending my titles as undisputed world champion in Dallas on Saturday, July 20,” Taylor

“I promised my fans they would see this rematch after we made history at MSG and it feels like a dream come true to know that Katie and I are finally making it happen on the biggest stage possible to show the world what elite women’s boxing is all about. While my focus continues to be on giving women the choice to fight with the same rules as men, I’ve always said that this is the one fight I’d go back to 10×2 for if that’s what Katie wanted. I’m coming for her belts, she wants 10×2, so that’s what we will do. I believe I won our first fight, but I didn’t get the decision, so this time I’m not leaving it to the judges,” Serrano

“Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano are two of the best boxers in the world. I know they can both put on an incredible show, and I’m thrilled to have them join this card. These remarkable athletes will undoubtedly elevate the event with their global appeal and fan bases. Adding one of the greatest fights in women’s boxing history to this unforgettable event is a true gift to fans. Saturday, July 20 can’t get here soon enough,” Mike Tyson
