Taylor-Serrano bout again proves women’s boxing on the rise

NEW YORK — Here are three takeaways from Katie Taylor’s historic split-decision win against Amanda Serrano on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.

What. A. Fight.

The biggest fight in women’s boxing history lived up to the billing. Taylor, the undefeated and undisputed women’s lightweight champion, and Amanda Serrano packed MSG and delivered a performance for the ages. After going back-and-forth over the first three rounds, Serrano, the heavier hitter of the two, seized control — walking Taylor down in the fourth round and wobbling her badly in the fifth. Taylor, at 35 and coming off several subpar performances, looked in trouble.
