Eddie Hearn, promoter of undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor, is having positive discussions with the management team for unified featherweight champion Amanda Serrano.
Hearn is hoping to finalize a deal to have the two of them collide on a date in April at New York's Madison Square Garden in New York City.
He believes the fight is big enough to sell out the big room at MSG.
The two fighters were scheduled to fight last year, twice, with the initial date falling out due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the second date crumbled over a financial dispute.
Serrano's career is now guided by Jake Paul's Most Valuable Promotions.
"I had good chats with Nakisa [Bidarian] and Jake Paul and those guys at Most Valuable [Promotions],” Hearn revealed to Chris Mannix on his podcast.
“They appear to wanna make that fight — so do we. We’ve already spoken to The Garden about doing that fight in April. I think we can do it,” he adds before revealing he wants to make a big room big statement.
“But why go in the small room? I mean, one thing’s for sure – that small room sells out real fast for that fight, right? So, if we want to make a statement for women’s boxing, you’ve got the powerhouse of Matchroom, you’ve got the powerhouse of Jake Paul, you’ve got the powerhouse of two of the great female pound-for-pound fighters of all time. Let’s roll the dice.
“Because if we want to put women’s boxing at the forefront, and we want to make a statement, you don’t make a statement by going in a small hall. You make a statement going in the big hall. And if it catches fire, if people understand it, if people buy into the hype, which doesn’t even need to be there, I think it can capture the imagination. And I think it can fill it up.”
