  • Katie Taylor 'Wants To Keep Making History' After Split Decision Win Over Amanda Serrano

Katie Taylor 'wants to keep making history' after split-decision win over Amanda Serrano

Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano's blockbuster fight at MSG lived up to expectations on Saturday night, with the 35-year-old retaining her lightweight world titles with a split-decision victory.

Katie Taylor extended her unbeaten streak in boxing on Saturday night with a split-decision victory over Puerto Rico's Amanda Serrano.

It was the first women's event to headline Madison Square Gardens, and the two fighters left everything in the ring over 12 gruelling rounds.

But Ireland's Katie Taylor came out on top on the judges' cards, giving her the 21st win of her remarkable career.

Following her victory, Taylor labelled the result the best night of her career, and suggested the duo got the best out of each other.

"I had to dig deep in there, I had to produce a career-defining performance to actually win," Taylor said at a post-fight press conference. "We definitely got the best out of each other, that's for sure.
"Everybody was talking about this as the biggest fight in women's boxing history but I think it actually exceeded everything that people were talking about.
"This was a special, special moment. It was the best night of my career. I wasn't sure if anything could reach my Olympic gold medal moment but that was absolutely the best moment of my career."
But after Serrano gave Taylor the biggest challenge of her career, a rematch between the pair seems inevitable, and it's definitely something Taylor would like to see happen.
"The rematch would be absolutely phenomenal and if it was in Dublin, we could sell out Croke Park," the 35-year-old said.
"That would be unbelievable. We've seen something special here. Imagine fighting in front of 80 or 90,000 people at Croke Park. Absolutely, that can happen.
"I have no plans of retiring right now. I love my sport, I love fighting and I just want to keep making history and keep doing what I'm doing."
