Elle Brooke is expecting another epic encounter when Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano renew hostilities in May.
Brooke, a crossover fighter who has impressed massively when appearing on Misfits Boxing shows, has become a student of the sport in recent times and both Taylor and Serrano are fighters that she hugely admires.
In April last year, both women pout everything on the line as they delivered a superb encounter in front of a packed Madison Square Garden.

The bout had been publicised to ridiculous levels but when the first bell sounded, Taylor and Serrano went above and beyond to prove who was the better fighter.
It was Taylor who took the verdict by the narrowest of margins, but Serrano’s efforts made her dangerous throughout and there has been demand for a rematch ever since.
After beating Erika Cruz this past weekend, it was confirmed that the popular New Yorker will travel to Dublin on May 20 for her chance to secure revenge over Taylor.
“I really like Katie Taylor,” said Brooke during an exclusive chat with DAZN.
“In that first fight she looked a bit stuck, but she just has it in her where she’s ready to fight.
“She loves a brawl but she’s also very technical, and she also won that first fight. I think Katie Taylor definitely on this one, but it will definitely go the full rounds. It’s going to be a brilliant fight.”
