AMANDA SERRANO rose to prominence as a boxer.

The pro has won numerous trophies in her career, but who is she?

Who is Amanda Serrano and what is her boxing record?

Amanda Serrano is a Puerto Rican professional boxer, mixed martial artist, and wrestler who was born on October 9, 1988.

She was born in the same area of Carolina as her sister Cindy.

Her grandparents were born in Carolina, but her family relocated to New York when she was a child.

The family lived in Brooklyn, where Amanda remained until she was an adult.

She is the undisputed world champion at featherweight, holding the WBO championship since 2019, the WBC and IBO belts since 2021, and the WBA title since 2023.

She is the only female and Puerto Rican to have won world titles in multiple weight classes.

Amanda holds the Guinness World Record for the most boxing world titles won by a female in various weight classes.

Serrano has received the WBO’s Female Boxer of the Year Award twice (in 2016 and 2018), as well as the first Super World Championship awarded to a woman.

What happened when Amanda Serrano fought Katie Taylor?

The first women’s boxing contest to headline Madison Square Garden was Serrano v Taylor.

It was billed as the “biggest women’s fight of all time” and took place on April 30, 2022.

Taylor won a split decision over Serrano in the Sports Illustrated Fight of the Year.

A rematch was scheduled for May 20, 2023 in Dublin, however Serrano was forced to withdraw due to injury.

Amanda has subsequently stated that she believes the rematch will not be rescheduled.

Amanda has since said that she thinks the rematch will not be rearranged.

Now, according to Serrano, their rematch is also in jeopardy.

Speaking on The MMA Hour, Amanda said: “Maybe [it will only be] delayed if she comes out on top, beating Cameron, which I don’t think that will happen.

“But if she does, then maybe the rematch with me will happen.

“I just hope that Katie does the right thing and she wins.”
