”The Real Deal’ says Taylor fight has to happen, but not straight away

Amanda Serrano was crowned a seven-weight world champion and immediately admitted wants to take on Ireland sensation Katie Taylor.
Serrano took just 35 seconds to knock out Eva Voraberger and win the vacant WBO Female super-flyweight crown at Madison Square Garden, New York.
Serrano wants to take on previous WBO champion Raging Raja next but with Taylor beating her sister Cindy in Boston, in October, made it clear she will take on the lightweight supremo.
“I think seven is good and I will probably want to keep this one for a while and defend this against the so-called real champion Raja… maybe she won’t take the fight,” she told DAZN.
“If that fight comes, I hope she is ready for it, but right now I have other sights on my mind. But she better be ready for me.”
Serrano’s first world title was the WBO lightweight strap now belonging to Taylor – who has already called her out – and has gone up to super-lightweight to win an astounding seven world titles in different classes.
‘The Real Deal’ piled straight into Voraberger and a vicious bodyshot did the damage and left her only one behind the future Hall of Famer, Manny Pacquiao, who has been a champion in eight divisions.
