Undisputed lightweight champion, Katie Taylor, feels her upcoming mega-fight with seven-division world champ, Amanda Serrano, this Saturday night could be a matchup for the ages.
Taylor spoke with TMZ Sports ahead of her historic headlining bout against Serrano this weekend at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, and explained why she believes that this fight could end up being viewed in the same light as the two iconic matchups between heavyweight legends, Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier which also took place at MSG.
"I think so. I think the fight on Saturday night is going to absolutely be awe-inspiring for people," Taylor said. "I feel like stylistically we match up very very well, and it's going to make for a phenomenal fight and I think this fight is going to be talked about for years and years to come. I've even talked about every time you say 'Madison Square Garden' you think of the likes of Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. These kinds of fighters -- fights that we still talk about to this day. So I feel like the fight between myself and Amanda will be talked about for years and years to come as well. And absolutely think there will be follow-through, carry on with regards to the payday as well."
