Taylor vs Serrano LIVE: Fight stream, latest updates and result tonight

(AP)

Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano will become the first female fighters to ever headline at Madison Square Garden, as they face off with Taylor’s undisputed lightweight title on the line tonight.

The Irishwoman enters this historic bout unbeaten as a professional, with a record of 20-0 and six knockouts to her name. Taylor, 35, is an Olympic gold medal-winner and former super-lightweight champion, but she said this week of this evening’s clash with Serrano: “Saturday night is going to be the best night of my life. Everything is going to pale in comparison to what will happen on Saturday night.”

Meanwhile, Serrano has just one defeat in his 44 professional fights, and the Puerto Rican – who has held titles across seven divisions – is unified featherweight champion. “I am doing this for Latinos,” the 33-year-old said this week. “This is the first time that Puerto Rico will have an undisputed champion.” It is part of the blood, I guess,” retorted Taylor. “My dad was a boxer, my two brothers boxed, my mother was the first female boxing judge in Ireland. So, I feel like I am carrying on her pioneering spirit.”

More of the same from Taylor! Could she do enough here to secure a draw or even win it late on?

Her right hand is starting to cause Serrano trouble. The Puerto Rican cannot afford to just coast here.

Taylor seems to have found a second wind! She springs back into life in this round.

Good counter left hooks again, and she’s throwing more combinations – quickly, too.

Strong body work from Serrano still, however.

A less eventful round. Taylor lands a couple of decent counter hooks off both wings, but she’s not using her jab enough.

Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano

Taylor is bloodied badly around her nose. She’s taking a lot of punishment and not defending herself very well.

She fights back in spurts, but she’s throwing harder than she needs to.

Serrano firmly in control now.

Taylor is looking to land counter shots, but Serrano’s power begins to take an effect!

They move into space and Serrano mixes it up between the body and the head – uppercuts and hooks up top!

Taylor is in serious trouble! How has she made it to the end of the round?!

Serrano is still pressing forward throughout.

Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano

The straight left is still landing pretty frequently for Serrano. When it comes to her wider shots, she’s having less success; Taylor is gauging range well in those situations.

Taylor’s counter left is still proving fairly effective, too.

Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano

The women clinch early and are soon separated.

Again Serrano is following Taylor, who skips laterally around the ring.

A sharp one-two from the champion! That’s the best moment for Taylor so far.

Serrano responds well with a few stinging left straights, though!

Serrano might have taken that round late on…
