Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn described it as the ‘greatest thing to happen to women’s boxing’ as Jake Paul also announced the big news on Twitter.

The two fighters were due to meet back in 2020 until the Covid-19 pandemic forced the bout to be called off.

Now history-maker Taylor, a two-weight world champion, is finally set to go one-on-one with the woman that has held nine major world titles across seven different weight classes.

Serrana is promoted by Jake Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions, and the YouTuber tweeted the official fight poster along with: “Biggest women’s fight in boxing history. We did it @Serranosisters  @MostVpromotions.

“People have been talking about this fight for years and there have been times I wondered if it was ever going to happen so I’m very grateful to Eddie Hearn, everyone at Matchroom, DAZN and Madison Square Garden for getting it over the line.

“When I turned professional my goal was to be involved in huge events like this so to headline at Madison Square Garden in a fight of this magnitude is really the pinnacle of the sport.

“It’s such an iconic venue and has been home to so many of the historic moments in boxing and I truly believe this will be another one.”

Hearn added: “Everyone talks about the biggest fight in women’s boxing, but also, one of the biggest fights in boxing.

“We’ve been working hard for a long time on women’s boxing and I’m just so happy that fight is made and at the mecca of boxing, Madison Square Garden.
