The 29-year-old Serrano made her MMA debut at a Combate Americas event back in April, but she did not come out as the victor in that fight. Serrano fought Corina Herrera to a draw on that April fight.
The October 13 MMA card will be headlined by a bantamweight bout between former UFC fighter Erik Perez and John Castaneda where the winner becomes the No. 1 contender to the Combate Americas title currently held by Jose Alday. Here is the full card as it stands:
- Erik Perez vs. John Castaneda
- Amanda Serrano vs. Erendira Ordonez
- Anthony Birchak vs. Adam Martinez
- Juan Pablo Gonzalez vs. Mario Bautista
- Arturo Guzman vs. Kasey Tanner
- Jair Perez vs. Peter De La Cruz
- Misael Iñarritu vs. Peter Quezada
Serrano recently won the vacant WBO junior welterweight title on the undercard of Shawn Porter vs. Danny Garcia. With that win, Serrano became the third boxer in history to win a world title in six different weight classes, joining Oscar De La Hoya and Manny Pacquiao as the only boxers to do so.
