“If there is a boxer who knows me well in the ring, it is Heather Hardy because we have performed as four gauntlets. She is strong, fights with great courage and has a big heart. She, like me, campaigns in mixed martial arts and even signed with Bellator. The important thing here is that the fans will be the winners since Hardy and I are very popular in New York, we always go to battle. The same fans of us had been waiting for this fight for five years, ”said Serrano, who in his last fight in January, I only need 36 seconds to become world champion of seven weight categories, this when he won by knockout in the first assault on Eva Voraberguer, of Austria, in a duel that was for the WBO world scepter of 115 pounds.
“The 126 pounds is my natural weight and where I feel a thousand percent. For my beautiful island and for female boxing, I make sacrifices to raise and lower divisions to make history. There is talk that the winner of this fight will have a mega fight with Katie Taylor and that is fantastic since it would be one of the biggest fights in women’s boxing, but right now my concentration is only directed towards Heather Hardy, ”said Serrano.
