Amanda Serrano Details Lightweight Return After Seven Years
Boxing ace Amanda Serrano is just as excited as her fans for her December 18 fight where she will compete in a lightweight bout against Miriam Gutierrez.
This is the first time Serrano will appear as a lightweight in the last seven years.
They will fight this Saturday at AMALIE Arena in Tampa. The bout will serve as the chief support to the rematch between YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul (4-0, 3KOs) and former UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley (0-1 as a boxer).
In a recent interview, Serrano explained how moving two divisions up was easier than expected as she did not have to worry about skipping any meals.
“I definitely won’t have any problem making weight,” the Puerto Rican joked.
“Instead of working my way down, I have to eat just to keep on the pounds. The nutritionist we have for this training camp has helped put the right food in my body so I feel strong while making weight the right way.”
Serrano is looking forward to share the ring with Katie Taylor next.
“I’m looking forward to fighting here again, beating (Gutierrez) and then hopefully getting the fight with Katie Taylor next year,” she continued.
The 33-year-old has held the unified featherweight world championship crown since March 2021 when she added the OBI title to her decorated resume.
She possessed the WBO and WBC titles since March 2021 before then.
