Katie Taylor couldn’t secure the knockout she sought, but she did dominate Cindy Serrano on Saturday night.

Ireland’s Taylor was aggressive throughout their bout, landed an array of power punches and produced a very convincing victory over a former champion. All three judges – Steve Clark, John Madfis and Allen Nace – scored each of the 10 rounds for Taylor (100-90).

The 32-year-old Taylor (11-0, 5 KOs) won a unanimous decision to defend her IBF and WBA lightweight titles at TD Garden in Boston. Prior to Saturday night, the 36-year-old Serrano (27-6-3, 10 KOs), who has never been knocked out, hadn’t lost since April 2012.

Brooklyn’s Serrano hadn’t fought since last October 14, when she defeated Edina Kiss by split decision at Barclays Center. Prior to beating Serrano, Taylor fought four times since Serrano’s previous bout.

Taylor tried to knock out Serrano during the 10th and final round, but couldn’t do it.

Right hands by Taylor hurt Serrano with just over a minute remaining in the ninth round. By then, Serrano was just trying to survive in a completely one-sided fight.

[QUOTE=MisanthropicNY;19215322]That's all true, but it shows that Floyd respected Conor's stand up enough to do that rather than just maul him. If Conor was that terrible, Floyd shouldn't even have to have a strategy of waiting for him to burn…

[QUOTE=b morph;19215313]While that may be true, you need to look at the context. Floyd fought squared up and right in front of Conor the whole fight. He fought Conors fight because he wanted to and it was his strategy. He…

[QUOTE=MisanthropicNY;19213775]Stop projecting Newb status on others. You actually ranted on here as the most clueless poster I've ever seen. Have you seen Conor's UFC's resume? Dude beat the greatest 145 lber ever in 13 seconds (Aldo), beat the current champ…
