Serrano Wins over Larcinese
by Mark A. Jones

(FEB 28) Verona, NY-Turning Stone Casino- Amanda Serrano, 126 ˝, Brooklyn, scored a unanimous win over Lucia Larcinese, 127, Montreal, in a crowd pleasing six. Serrano, now 5-0-1 with 3 stoppages opened the fight cutting down the ring and forcing a game Lucia Larcinese, now 4-5-0 into a neutral corner where the Brooklyn based featherweight won the first serious exchange of the bout.

Larcinese didn’t have enough to hold off the vigorously swarming Serrano landing only landing a few counter punches the remainder of the round. Round two found Larcinese, unable to move around the southpaw Serrano’s lead hand, instead, moved into Serrano’s left cross. Whatever the wisdom of that tactic, Larcinese had success in the third and sixth rounds moving to her right out of range and countering Serrano’s lunging left cross with jabs and right hands which appear to be the only punches in her arsenal on this evening.

Serrano, with the exception of the first and fourth rounds, employed her jab only intermittently. After allowing the Canadian back into the fight in the third round, Serrano rediscovered her jab and landed the clearly more damaging punches in the fourth. Larcinese boxed cautiously in the fourth and mid-way through the fifth rounds waiting for mistakes that weren’t coming. It may have cost her either a close win or a draw as she waited until the second half of the fifth round to turn up the heat.

Larcinese countered well with her right cross in the sixth as Serrano resumed reaching with her punches. Neither fighter was down or appeared in any serious trouble; Serrano’s punches were clearly more damaging.

The judges saw it for Serrano by the scores of 59-54, and the more reasonable 58-56 twice. This author scored it for Serrano 58-56 giving Larcinese the third and sixth. There were some boo birds as the winner was announced and a few at ringside thought that Lucia Larcinese did enough to win.

Larcinese was a bit repetitious and mechanical, while Serrano offered more variety and was more pleasing technically. Larcinese is better than her 4-5-1 record would indicate. Losses to the talented boxers such as Ronica Jeffery, Adawirky Lopez, Lindsay Garbatt, and a potential future world champion in Amanda Serrano are not embarrassing.

Amanda Serrano is on the right track to becoming a world champion. She has the right grapes; her wine just needs more time.

Crowd: 1100 ‘estimated’
