The fight between Amanda Serrano and Katie Taylor was crazy especially that last round with an exchange of fighters, but for me the fight with Puerto Rico won. Dominating the entire battle, revenge is coming and hopefully a triple 👏🏾👏🏾

Amanda Serrano won the fight and it was clear and clear. I dominated Katie Taylor and I think she was the better fighter. I just can’t understand how the judges pulled this off for Katie Taylor.
