Amanda Serrano is keen to get a fight with Katie Taylor over the line "as soon as possible".

The Puerto Rican boxer is potentially one of the big draws for the Bray fighter later this year.

Taylor had spoken to us today about the prospect of fighting either Serrano or a rematch with Delfine Persoon.

But Serrano was the one Taylor views as the "exciting fight", given her "explosive" punching power.

"I think that's one of the biggest fights in boxing right now, not just in women's boxing," Taylor told me at an exclusive Sky VIP event at the Lighthouse Cinema.

"And it's a fight people have talked about for years and I would absolutely love that fight."

Agreement

It's a sentiment Serrano appears to be in total agreement with. She responded to Taylor's Off The Ball interview on Twitter and agreed that it would be "the biggest fight in boxing period".

"I must agree with Katie Taylor on this one," she tweeted.

"It's the biggest fight in boxing period. We are both balls to the wall warriors and the true winners will be the fans. Hope negotiations can be made ASAP":

Serrano's record speaks for itself. In 37 fights, she has lost just once and won 35, including 26 by knockout.

Most recently she saw off Austria's Eva Voraberger on January 18th at Madison Square Garden for the vacant WBO Super Flyweight title.

Serrano has won titles in seven different weight classes during her career thus far.
