Alycia Baumgardner targeting Katie Taylor, Amanda Serrano

Alycia Baumgardner faces Christina Linardatou tonight, but she's talking about her wish list of future opponents instead.

By: Nate Wilcox | 3 weeks ago

Alycia Baumgardner has a lot on the line tonight against Christina Linardaou. She is putting up her WBA, IBF, WBC and WBO super-featherweight titles against Linardauo. She’s also looking to avenge her 2018 loss to Linardauo, the only blot on her pro record.

‘No secret that she is looking past this weekend’s fight’

Despite all this, Baumgardner is telling DAZN that she’s got bigger fish to fry.

“The 29-year-old made it no secret that she is looking past this weekend’s fight at future opportunities, specifically naming three women’s boxing icons as possible opponents who just happen to be undisputed champions in various weight classes.”

“I am part of history now and we are able to showcase to the world what a women athlete looks like,” Baumgardner continued.   

“I will have a fight with Katie Taylor, Amanda Serrano, and Chantelle Cameron, these fights are huge fights, we have undisputed champions in each weight class, and I think it builds for a great fight.”
