Amanda Serrano and Katie Taylor are finally done and the biggest fight in women’s boxing history is underway.

Two of the most decorated women of all time will meet in Madison Square Garden on April 30 where Taylor will put her undisputed lightweight crown on the line.

Katie Taylor vs. Amanda Serrano was supposed to happen

The two men who finally managed to fight this fight together? Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing and Jake Paul of Most Valuable Promotions.

Jake Paul is the YouTuber-turned-boxer who amassed a 5-0 record with four knockouts fighting first-time boxers, often from other sports like MMA.

However, the 25-year-old is also a vocal crusader for better pay for fighters and in that vein has started his own promotional business, MVP.

His first athlete signed was the 42-1 Serrano and a few months later he gave him the biggest fight possible.

“Just a massive fight,” Hearn began. “Everyone is talking about the biggest fight in women’s boxing, but also one of the biggest fights in boxing. We’ve been working hard on women’s boxing for a long time and I’m so happy that the fight is done and at the Boxing mecca, Madison Square Garden.

“They deserve everything they get. Two trailblazers. An undisputed champion, a seven-division champion – it’s going to be a massive event.

Hearn also said it was “good” to work with the eccentric Paul and credits him for being a “smart man”.

“Its good [working with Jake Paul and MVP]. He wants to be the hero, really. He wants to be the guy who makes this fight. For once, I probably won’t say too much, I’ll let him get up there and do his thing, which is great.

“He’s going to bring a lot of noise to the show, he’s going to bring a lot of eyeballs, he’s a smart man. I can only judge him by how I found him.
