Eddie Hearn has claimed a Croke Park date for Katie Taylor is getting closer and closer to becoming a reality.
Taylor's promoter Hearn wants to agree a deal for a rematch between the Bray woman and Puerto Rican Amanda Serrano.
The pair fought at Madison Square Garden in April, with Taylor getting a points verdict in a thriller.
When rematch talks broke down between the pair earlier this year, they went on to defend their respective world titles.
But Hearn is desperate to grant Taylor's wish to fight on Irish soil as a professional for the first time, and Serrano is seen as the perfect opponent.
The promoter has said he is in talks with Serrano's promotion company, Most Valuable Promotions, run by Jake Paul.
Hearn said: “Katie Taylor at Croke Park, basically we’re all over it. It’s the only thing we want to do. We’re negotiating at the moment with Most Valuable Promotions. We’re closing in on a deal.
“Serrano could fight for undisputed [featherweight champion] as well against Erika Cruz in early February. We want to make it happen. Croke Park, we’re doing everything we can and I think we’ll make it happen.”
