Amanda Serrano Wins IBF World Title Belt

(SEPT 14) NEW YORK – Boxing 360 has its first world champion, new International Boxing Federation (“IBF”) junior lightweight Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano, who stopped WIBF Inter-Continental lightweight titlist Kimberly Connor in last Saturday night’s scheduled 10-round title fight in Brooklyn’s Aviator Sports Complex.

The undefeated 23-year-old Serrano (12-0-1, 8 KOs), a native of Puerto Rico who fights out of Brooklyn, took control early against her game Arkansas opponent, Connor (9-2-2, 4 KOs).

“It’s amazing,” Serrano spoke about winning her first world title at home in Brooklyn. “It was the best crowd ever and I had a lot of mixed-up emotions to deal with. I had so many family and friends there who’ve watched me grow in this sport. Winning a world title means the world to me. Kimberly was tough but I train for every fight like I’m fighting Mike Tyson. What’s next? I’m a fighter who just fights and trains. I’m ready to fight anybody between 122 and 130 who my team puts in front of me.”

Serrano’s promoter, Mario Yagobi (Boxing 360), believes Amanda will soon be ready to take on anybody in the world between the junior lightweight and junior featherweight divisions. “Amanda gave Boxing 360 its first world champion and we believe she’ll soon be adding more title belts to her collection,” Yagobi added. “She is the most dedicated fighter I’ve ever seen. Amanda lives boxing 24/7 and she’s worked very hard to get to this point. What’s really remarkable is that she’s only 23 with more to learn through ring experience. Right now, I’m not sure what’s next for her but the fighter we’d like to get in the ring is Maureen Shea. A fight in New York City between those two would be great for female boxing but, for whatever reason, Maureen doesn’t seem interested in fighting Amanda. Hopefully, she’ll change her mind because it’s a real natural.”

As world champion, Amanda has to relinquish her North American Boxing Federation Featherweight title belt.

“Once Amanda hurt her opponent, knocking her down (in the second round), she didn’t let up,” Boxing 360 Director of Boxing Bob Duffy added. “She just let her hands go until the referee (Benji Estevez) stopped the fight (1:45). She looked good.”
