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.
