Katie Taylor’s probably underperformed in her last couple of fights but I do think that she’ll get right up for the Serrano fight and I think, unless age has caught up with her, she’ll perform and really step up. I think she’s the better fighter.

Taylor vs Serrano is a fantastic fight and really looking forward to it. Very tough call, but I think Serrano may have the better engine and take it on a close points decision.

Because Katie Taylor is not a banger and she has to work so hard, wear and tear gets hold of you. Serrano is a banger, she looks to break you up, I think it’s a hard fight for Katie. I would never bet against Katie but right now I lean towards Serrano as the favourite. It might be a case of the right time.

Serrano will take the fight to Taylor. Taylor is best when counter-punching on the front foot. Victory for Taylor means finding the space she needs to work for 10 rounds. Serrano may be getting her at the right time, and if she puts in a career best performance, I pick her to win via split decision.
