(APR 23) Amanda “The Real
Deal” Serrano, 128.2, Brooklyn, elevates her status with an
impressive fourth round stoppage of Ela “Bam Bam” Nunez,
Johnstown at the Fairgrounds Event Center in Hamburg, NY. With
the win, Serrano improves her record to 9-0-1 with 5 kayos.
Nunez record now stands at 9-9-1 with 2 kayos. This was the
third meeting between the two with Serrano holding the edge with
two wins and a draw.
Serrano started fast at the
opening bell, with a two-fisted body attack, taking the fight to
Nunez who was relegated to sitting in front of her foe when her
escape route to her left was cut-off by Serrano’s ever improving
lateral movement and overall ring generalship.
Nunez absorbed numerous combinations to the body and straight
lefts to the head from Serrano and slowed down noticeably during
the first round.
The second round witnessed Serrano maneuver Nunez into the ropes
initiating each combination to the body and ending with hard
punches to the head. Nunez, still unable to move to her left,
was forced into several Serrano straight lefts as Nunez moved to
her right into Serrano’s power.
Nunez faded badly in the third round as Serrano’s relentless
body attack severely weakened her. As the third round ended,
Nunez was trapped on the ropes and near defenseless.
Serrano, sensing the possibility of a stoppage victory,
increased the tempo in the fourth round causing the assigned
referee to stop the contest with 30 seconds left in the round
when Nunez failed to answer a volley of cleanly landed punches
and appeared defenseless against the ropes.
Serrano appeared jubilant after her impressive victory, but
displayed proper respect for her battered foe.
