Eddie Hearn is ready to make a fight between Amanda Serrano and Katie Taylor after the lightweight champion defeated Natasha Jonas in their first professional meeting at the weekend as part of the Derek Chisora vs. Joseph Parker card.

Taylor had already beaten Jonas when the pairs were amateurs in an Olympic qualification bout, but was a convincing winner of a tough fight on Saturday.

In the aftermath of the win, Taylor has called for a fight against Serrano as she looks to make the biggest matches before she even considers retirement.

She also suggested that she might be ready to face Jessica McCaskill in her next fight, but Serrano appeals to Hearn.

Speaking to the DAZN Boxing Show, Hearn praised his fighter for her efforts as she retained her status as the undisputed champion at the weight.

“Katie Taylor, fight after fight, time after time, performance after performance, she’s an absolute superstar,” he said.

When asked about setting up Taylor-Serrano, Hearn quickly responded: “Let’s do it.”

The bout was discussed a year or so ago, but negotiations went nowhere. It would still rank as one of the biggest possible women's fights to be made, with many experts putting both fighters in their top three pound-for-pound rankings along with Claressa Shields.
