(APR 25) After making
the long trip from Brooklyn, N.Y., to Linkoping, Sweden, Amanda
"The Real Deal" Serrano (14-0-1, 9 KOs) has settled into her
living arrangements as she gets acclimated to the cold weather
before battling Frida Wallberg (10-0, 2 KOs) for her WBC
lightweight world title. The fight takes place this Friday,
"It's really cold out here and it's supposed to rain all week,"
Serrano said. "Frida is used to this kind of weather so she will
have the advantage in that department. But make no mistake about
it, I'm coming to win the WBC world title. Wallberg might be
fighting at home, but I'm confident that I will come out
victorious. My trainer Jordan Maldonado and I got our game plan
down. It's time to get the proper rest and be ready for fight
night. I can't wait."
Said promoter Mario Yagobi, "I'm happy that Amanda and her team
made it safely to Sweden. This is a big fight for Boxing360 and
our company. Serrano has worked very hard to put herself in this
position and I know she is going to give it all she's got. I
have a good feeling that I'll be promoting a two-time world
champion after Friday night."
