Much bigger upside to improvements Persoon can make from the first fight, than Taylor in my opinion.

Hence why not convinced it gets made?

I reckon this fight could get made on the Ruiz/Joshua undercard or as a homecoming fight for Taylor in Ireland.
Either way Hearn will have to have the ref and 2 of the 3 judges in his back pocket for the fight to happen...

I’m really not convinced that the Taylor/Persoon fight takes place, Serrano is contracted to fight Taylor. Also Persoon to win next time if Eddie plays fair

If Taylor vs. Serrano is next.
Cameron vs. Persoon for the IBO Title is the fight to make.
Winners meet...

It's good they are seemingly chasing the rematch. But there was absolutely no reason why it couldn't have happened last night instead of the Linardatou fight.

Or the Serrano fight.
Or a Cameron fight.
Hearn is just milking her at this point.

Aka throw her with Braekhus at welter to get beat up.
Well at this point she’s in the final stage of her fight career, so they’re probably trying to look at getting her paid as much as she can, so will take those type of fights.

The Persoon fight is high risk, high reward in my opinion. It’s has a built in story and will likely be a good fight they can hype up. If she can win well, it sets up fights for her against Braekhus , etc.

The risk is that Persoon could realise her best chance to win is to put on some solid mass, weigh in as an actual lightweight and use it to bully Taylor. 5lb of muscle on a woman is substantial.
