The42.ie boxing journalist Gavan Casey joins Michael to weigh up if a Katie Taylor / Michael Conlan St. Patrick’s Day Double Header in Madison Square Garden will happen.
Conlan took to social media earlier this month to pitch the idea of an epic doubleheader alongside Taylor at the “mecca” of boxing next March.
The final decision to arrange the mouthwatering card would be left to Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn who won the purse to host Conlan’s next potential fight against Britain’s Leigh Wood.
Hearn recently bid $1.5 million to earn the rights to promote Conlan’s clash with WBA ‘regular’ featherweight champion Wood.
Taylor would fill the other slot on the potential super card by finally locking horns with Puerto Rican Amanda Serrano, who is based in Brooklyn. Taylor continues to train in Connecticut and Hearn has promoted all of her fights since she turned professional in 2016.
Taylor v Serrano would be the biggest fight in female boxing history and has been in the works for years but a deal has yet to be reached. Serrano is a seven-division boxing champion who has held nine titles from 115 pounds all the way up to 140 pounds. Taylor defeated Serrano’s sister Cindy in 2018.
Gavan and Michael also discuss where Taylor and Conlan currently stand in their respective careers.
