Amanda Serrano Creates History As She Will Box Under Men’s Rules

Amanda Serrano’s fight with Danila Ramos on October 27th, 2023, will see her box under the same rules as men. 

The historic bout will see Serrano fight for 12 rounds, with each round lasting three minutes. And as part of that process, her status as undisputed featherweight champion is at stake. The Puerto Rican secured the WBO belt when she beat Heather Hardy all the way back in 2019. The peak of her career arrived when Serrano became the undisputed champion with a victory over Erika Cruz.

Her last fight was a rematch with Hardy, which ended with a comfortable victory as Serrano walked out with a unanimous-decision win. In contrast, Ramos secured her position as the WBO interim champion with a victory over Brenda Karen Carbajal via a split decision. 

Comments

“Danila Ramos may be my WBO mandatory challenger, but when we step in the ring, she will understand exactly why I am the undisputed featherweight champion. But this fight is about more than some belts. We have faced a long and hard battle, united as women, to achieve the same pay, respect, and recognition in boxing.

“Together, on Friday, October 27, we will make history and prove to the world once again, how incredible women’s boxing is and that we are just as tough, dynamic, and capable as any man in the ring, if not more so. This is a fight for women everywhere to be treated the same as their male counterparts,” Amanda Serrano

“Fighting Amanda Serrano for 12 three-minute rounds for a unified championship is set to break the barriers that we women have been looking to do for many years.

“We will go down in history and in the books, it will be a fight of two women warriors! I am preparing like never before for this fight and will proudly represent Brazil as we battle in Orlando, Florida and I look to bring all the belts home,” Danila Ramos
