Katie Taylor's Redemption
Katie Taylor has just become a two-weight undisputed champion, but she may soon have to give up one of her world titles. In an impressive rematch, Taylor avenged her loss to Chantelle Cameron and snatched all four super-lightweight titles in a thrilling fight at Dublin's 3Arena.
However, Taylor's achievement poses a problem with the WBO. The organization only allows champions to hold one title across divisions. They have given Taylor a 10-day ultimatum to decide whether she wants to keep her 135lb or 140lb straps.
The Weight Division Dilemma
Back in 2019, Taylor faced a similar dilemma when she won the 140lb title. She eventually vacated the belt. Now, she must make a decision once again. Promoter Eddie Hearn has hinted at two potential fights for Taylor's next bouts: a trilogy with Cameron or a rematch with Amanda Serrano.
Rematch or Trilogy?
If Taylor chooses to have a rematch with Serrano, it's likely she will keep her 135lb WBO title. However, Hearn has teased a trilogy with Cameron, and if that happens, it would make more sense for Taylor to hold onto the 140lb version of the belt, especially if the fight takes place at Ireland's massive Croke Park stadium.
Only time will tell which decision Taylor will make and which world title she will ultimately keep.
