Jake Paul took to social media to announce Amanda Serrano would be face Katie Taylor in an historic rematch in 2023 – on one condition.
Paul, speaking on his official Twitter account, said his charge Serrano would be locking horns in Taylor’s native Ireland next year, provided Serrano manages to become undisputed at 126lbs first.
The Puerto Rican will face Ericka Cruz in a bid to capture the only edition of the featherweight world championship that has evaded her so far.
Me & MVP are negotiating with Eddie Hearn & Matchroom to get @Serranosisters the fights she deserves. Amanda’s priority is to be the 1st undisputed Puerto Rican champ. If & when she achieves that, she’s agreed to go to Ireland to fight Katie Taylor in front of 80,000 Irish fans. https://t.co/m9yQtLY5B3

Serrano defeated Sarah Mafhoud in September in Manchester to add the Dane’s IBF title to the WBO and WBC belts she already possessed.
The pair’s first fight headlined Madison Square Garden earlier this year and is regarded by many as the greatest female fight of all time, in which Taylor just edged out Serrano after a back and forth affair.
Hopes of a rematch being agreed were initially dampened after Eddie Hearn announced Matchroom would be taking legal action against Serrano’s promoter Jake Paul over comments he made regarding Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.
However, Hearn has cleared up in recent interviews the lawsuit would not impact negotiations for a rematch between Taylor and Serrano, and Paul’s tweet this week seems to back this up.
A rematch is expected to take place at Croke Park in Dublin, a GAA stadium which holds over 80,000 people. It would, remarkably, be the first time Taylor has fought in Ireland since turning professional back in 2016.
