  • Nothing personal, but EVERY female fighter looks like a club fighter. It’s like watching 7 yr old amatures. The commentators sound like CNN.

    • Haha yeah it does seem very political. Taylor performed well but I was nearly vomiting at the commentator gushing non stop for 12 rounds.

  • ok i totally agree with Johnny B Good why are the clueless commentators NOT talking about the female Manny Pacquiao aka Amanda Serrano? they mentioned Shields who is 3 weight divisions higher and even Cyborg lol but NOT Serrano and then this joke of a coach says Serrano is ducking Taylor hahahahahaha sign the damn contract and out your money were your mouth is dont worry your daddy Eddie Hearn will bail you out with some BS excuse i guess her 38-1-1 28ko record 7 weight division world championships might have somethig to do with it………

    • Katie Taylor would likely overwhelm Serrano. She’s naturally quite a bit bigger and still wouldn’t be at a speed disadvantage. Plus, let’s be honest, Taylor is the A-side of any match she makes… the competition needs to come to her.

      • lol thats cute lets just be real for a sec … Taylor overwhelm her? wasnt Lomachencko suppose to overwhelm Lopez? power makes you either get respect or give respect and NOT take chance you normally would do if the opponent has the power to put you to sleep and Serrano has already been a 140lb world champion and again my bet goes with the ONLY female in boxing with 10 world titles in 7 different weight divisions 2x female fighter of the year the ONLY current female fighter with 28KOs which is a 70% KO ratio if she had adecent promoter and there was NO franchise bias aka ESPN/Top Rank, PBC, hell even the Ring is showing money based bias Amanda Serrano is HANDS Down the P4P Queen of Boxing currently….

        • Serranos last opponent had 11 losses in her last 15 fights. Give it a break pal. Taylor is better to watch than most of her male counterparts. She didn’t get the undefeated fighter out of there but did the next best thing landed almost every shot and didn’t get hit. Her style is in no way similar to Lomas there is zero comparison. Serranos needs to keep picking off the dregs of women’s boxing who on average have as many losses as wins while she waits for Taylor to pick her.

  • “Little Lever’s Meat Cleaver”

    Best boxing nickname ever? At the very least, it’s near the top.
