Prediction for the Taylor vs Serrano fight
Leave all that empty talk behind, even if you don't like women's boxing, because you will if you watch this fight. It's going to be interesting. Irishwoman Taylor is the host in it. The fight will be for her titles - WBC, WBA, IBF, and WBO at 61.2kg. The Puerto Rican Serrano has risen from either a previous or 'pre-fight' weight class. But it is hard to say who will win.
I still think it's Taylor. I'll try to explain. Oddly enough, weight plays a key role here. Serrano is a pretty rare type of knockout for women's boxing, but it's hiding at the new weight, especially two categories heavier than your usual weight.
Serrano won't be able to shake Taylor the way other fighters do. Firstly, because Taylor is a completely different level of fighter, generally her equal. Secondly, because it's Taylor, it's not a phrase. In boxing, especially women's boxing, that plays a role. An equal fighter with a lesser name might be able to get bogged down by Serrano's punching power, but Taylor won't allow herself that, for which additional resources, not yet known to her, will be mobilized.
Once Katie has withstood Amanda's opening spurt, things will take a long turn, and Taylor's advantage will slowly grow. I think it will reach 3-4 points by the end of the meeting, and no one will be in doubt. Well, almost.
