JAKE PAUL will head to London as part of the promotions for Katie Taylor vs Amanda Serrano – dubbed the ‘biggest women’s fight in history’.
The YouTuber-turned-boxing-mogul will take part in a press conference on 7th February ahead of the blockbuster fight.
Puerto Rican star Serrano is part of the Problem Child’s new Most Valuable Promotions company.
Taylor, 35, will put her undefeated record – as well as the undisputed lightweight title – on the line against her 33-year-old rival.
The event is set to take place at New York’s Madison Square Garden on 30th April.
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 who has held nine major world titles across seven different weight classes.
Last week Paul tweeted the official fight poster along with: “Biggest women’s fight in boxing history. We did it @Serranosisters @MostVpromotions.

“Thank you @KatieTaylor @TheGarden @EddieHearn @MatchroomBoxing @DAZNBoxing.”
Taylor said: “This is a fight I’ve wanted for a long, long time and I’m just excited for it to finally take place because these are the kind of fights I’m in the sport for.
“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.”
And Taylor promoter 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.
“They deserve everything they get. Two trailblazers. One undisputed champion, one seven-division champion – it’s going to be a massive event.”
