Irish fighter Katie Taylor has set her sights on three huge fights that would cement her status as the best ever women's boxer.

Taylor is currently due to fight Amanda Serrano behind closed doors at the Manchester Arena in either late July or early August, with that date subject to change because of the on-going coronavirus pandemic.

The Bray fighter will defend her undisputed lightweight title against seven-weight champion Serrano, in what promises to be the toughest fight of her career.

However Serrano isn’t the only opponent on Taylor’s radar and speaking to Sky Sports, she revealed that she has a three-fighter hit list that she believes will help to cement her legacy.

After that Serrano bout, Taylor wants to fight undisputed welterweight champion Cecilia Braekhus and is also seeking a rematch against Delfine Persoon.

Taylor revealed: "I’m obviously fighting Amanda Serrano next I hope, there’s talks of me fighting Cecilia Braekhus and obviously the Persoon rematch is very, very important as well.

"I’d be happy to fight those three next, they’re huge fights and I want to be involved in the biggest fights possible.

"These are fights where we’re all still in our prime and that’s what makes these mega-fights feel so special."

Taylor acknowledged that there are still question marks over her lightweight victory against Persoon in June of last year, where she won by a controversial split decision.

Persoon landed more punches and finished the stronger in the fight and even Taylor’s promoter admitted at the time that he had the result down as a draw.

Taylor admitted that she was far from her best that night and she is eager to put any doubts about the result to bed with a rematch.

A rematch with Delfine Persoon is on the cards

"The Persoon rematch is very important," she said. "Obviously a lot of people had her winning the fight so I have to put that to bed.

"I think the next time I do fight her, I’ll put on a better performance. It was a particularly bad performance that night but thankfully I dug deep and was able to get the win in a very, very close fight.

"It could have gone the other way and I’m so grateful that it did go my way, so I’m looking forward to that rematch and putting on a dominating performance."

While Taylor has her immediate goals in mind, she remains focused on the long term and insists that her legacy in boxing remains the most important thing for her.

"I still love the sport as much as I ever have," she said. "I’m so passionate about the sport and the day that I fall out of love with it is the day I know I have to walk away from it.

"I still absolutely love it and I love my job and waking up every day and putting the work in, even though there are times when I’m not in the mood for training but that’s normal.

"I know that money and fame pass away but I want to leave a great legacy behind. I want to make history in this sport and I want to inspire the next generation, break down those barriers and keep on winning.

"There are a lot of things I can improve on, which is a great thing and I don’t think you’ve seen the best of me yet."
