Serrano Stops Olivo in Three in New York
by Bernie McCoy

(JUNE 30) On Saturday night at the Event Center in the Empire Resort Casino in Queens, NY, next door to Aqueduct Racetrack, Amanda Serrano overwhelmed a tough, game, but thoroughly overmatched Domniga Olivio in the third round of a scheduled six round bout that was the main event of a eight bout card, promoted by New Legend Boxing in association with Old World Boxing and WON Promotions, in front of an enthusiastic, overflow crowd of New York boxing fans.

Serrano, at 130 pounds, gave up two pounds to the veteran Olivo, who was making a return to the ring after a 26 month hiatus in a seven year career that saw her in the ring with virtually every top featherweight in Women's boxing. But it was the younger fighter (Serrano is 24, Olivo is 41) who controlled the action from the opening bell, increasing her domination of the bout as it proceeded.

In the opening round, Serrano landed the heavier punches and was the aggressor, while Olivo backtracked across the ring, looking for counter punch opportunities. And, in fact in that opening two minutes, the older boxer did have several moments when she landed effective punches on the oncoming Serrano. The round, however, was Serrano's.

The second stanza saw Serrano's edge in both power punches and punch count accelerate significantly as she continued to stalk Olivo around the ring, trapping the older fighter on the ropes several times during the round and ending the two minutes of action by coming close to sending Olivo through the ropes as the bell sounded to end an outsized winning round for Serrano. A number of ringside observers and officials seemed to question whether the bout should have been stopped during Serrano's late round flurry on the ropes. It continued to round three.

Serrano began the third round patiently walking down a clearly tiring Olivo and at the thirty second mark, Serrano again trapped Olivo on the ropes, unloading, with little response from Olivo and what punches Olivo did throw seemed instinctive, rather than strategic. The exchange became so one sided that two ringside officials climbed to the ring apron shouting for the bout to be stopped. And at 1:18 of the round referee Sammy Viruet stepped between the two fighters ending the bout.

It was a good win for Serrano, not only by the manner in which she dominated, but also notable since it was against a tough, seasoned fighter who has competed at the highest level in the featherweight ranks. With the win, Serrano establishes herself as a contending factor in a division, 125-135 pounds, that is as deep in talent as any in Women's boxing. Serrano increased her gaudy record to 18-1-1 (13KO) while Olivo drops to 8-8-1.
