Amanda Serrano's rematch with Katie Taylor has been confirmed following a unanimous points win over Erika Cruz in New York on Saturday.

The Puerto Rican became undisputed featherweight champion with her triumph, paving the way for a second bout against Taylor in Dublin on May 20.

Taylor joined Serrano in the ring following the victory over Cruz to confirm the showdown, having beaten Serrano on points last April.

"This is more than a dream come true. My debut in Ireland against Amanda Serrano, 'The Real Deal' Amanda Serrano. This is incredible," Taylor said.

"The last fight was epic, and I expect nothing less for the next one."

The pair set history in their initial fight, which was the first women's clash to headline a boxing card at Madison Square Garden.

The rematch will take place at Dublin's 3Arena after negotiations to hold a bout at Croke Park broke down due to security costs.
