The lightweight sensation battles Serrano, of Puerto Rico, this Sunday morning at the TD Garden, live on Sky Sports, with a huge Irish following expected to come out in their droves to support her.
In what very much feels like a “homecoming” fight, Taylor is relishing her latest career test.
Speaking at Thursday’s press conference, Taylor said: “This is a home from home for me in Boston.
“There’s going to be a huge Irish contingent in the arena and I can’t wait.
“This is going to be my toughest fight to date as a pro, Serrano is very experienced and a top seasoned professional.
I relish these fights, these are the ones I want to be involved in.
“I relish these fights though, these are the ones I want to be involved in, I’m ready to put on a show.”
Taylor has been a figurehead of women’s boxing ever since her amateur days and is now at the heart of its meteoric rise in the pro game.
The 32-year old is confident that the sport will continue to grow in the future and is excited by a number of potential high-profile clashes.
“It’s a great time for women’s boxing, people’s perceptions are changing.
“Having the opportunity to fight on these platforms is brilliant.
“Women’s’ boxing is on a high and there’s no shortage of great fights out there for me.”
