Will Amanda Serrano’s Fight With Danila Ramos Establish A New Benchmark For Boxing?

Amanda Serrano’s upcoming fight against Danila Ramos is set to make history as the bout will be the first-ever women’s unification fight that consists of three 12-minute rounds.

Serrano will defend her undisputed featherweight title on October 27th, 2023, at the Caribe Royale Resort, Orlando, Florida, in a fight where she will be the massive favorite. Following the split-decision loss to Katie Taylor, Serrano has racked up wins against Sarah Mahfoud, Erika Cruz Hernandez and Heather Hardy, going the distance in all three bouts to win by unanimous decision.

As for Ramos, the boxer is on a four-fight-win streak, with all the wins going to the scorecards. Therefore, the extra rounds may have a bearing on the fight later down the stretch. Both boxers are capable of going the distance, but the increased intensity may leave both vulnerable to fatigue.

But provided that the fighters put on a competitive performance, it could lead a new standard of women’s boxing moving forward, on par with their male counterparts. The last time that a women’s boxing bout took place on the same rules as men was in 2007. That is when Layla McCarter took on Melissa Hernandez as the former won via an eighth-round stoppage after the latter retired. Regardless of the future moving forward, both fighters were simply delighted to be part of making their own history.

“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,” Serrano

“Fighting Amanda Serrano for 12 three-minute rounds for a unified championship is set to break 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,” Ramos
