Lou DiBella, promoter for seven division champion Amanda Serrano, believes a potential showdown with undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor can happen in the future.

Taylor and Serrano were finally scheduled to fight each other last year, but the deal fell apart when the coronavirus pandemic hit and some of the terms were modified.

Both women have been calling each other out since.

DiBella expects the contest to happen - but not this year.

He feels confident that fight will come together at some point in 2022.

"I think the fight will happen in 2022 as a unification between two undisputed world champions," Serrano's promoter DiBella told Sky Sports.

"Hopefully Katie does not lose in the interim. I don't think she will. Amanda wants to unify the belts at 126lbs. She will be moving up two weight classes [to fight Taylor]. She is a featherweight, really. She has only moved up before to chase legacy and increase opportunities.

"She wants to unify featherweight before she moves up to lightweight, from which she will never come back down. Featherweight is her real weight, where she wants to prove herself.

"Then, when the world is open and the fight can take place at Madison Square Garden in front of thousands of Irish and Puerto Rican fans, the fight will happen. We would welcome negotiations right now if they come with a huge number."

After her most recent win, a close decision over Natasha Jonas, Taylor called for fights with Serrano and Jessica McCaskill.

"I definitely want to challenge myself against the very, very best. That's what I'm in the sport for. I don't see the point in ducking anyone or picking and choosing opponents. I want the very best because they bring out the best in me. That's what greatness looks like," Taylor said.
