Eddie Hearn Katie Taylor’s Next Fight Shortlist

Katie Taylor may not yet have a return date, but her promoter has put together a list of potential competitors.

The Bray woman has been out of the ring since earlier this year when, at Madison Square Garden in New York, she pass Amanda Serrano of Puerto Rico to defend her WBA Super, IBF, WBO, IBO lightweight crown.

All the talk then is that Taylor, the five-time world amateur and six-time European champion, will once again meet Serrano in a rematch in Dublin at Croke Park in September.

But New York-based Serrano voted against an immediate return and instead chose to fight at Madison Square Garden again on August 6, as part of the supporting cast to promote Jake Paul’s return against Hasim Rahman Jr.

Eddie Hearn, promoter of Katie Taylor, originally listed MMA stars Cris Cyborg and Holly Holm is a priority for ‘KT’ next enemy, likely in October, streaming only on DAZN.

However, Hearn – who also promotes Belfast’s Caoimhin Agyarko – spoke to Betfred’s Lightweight Boxing Show and proposed a rematch with Jessica McCaskill, who has been the undisputed welterweight champion since losing to the former two-time Olympian in 2017.
