Following the cancellation of her planned mixed martial arts contest, nine-time seven-division world champion Amanda Serrano, returned to the boxing ring and defeated Brazil's Simone Da Silva, by technical knockout in the third round.
“We are super happy. My last fight with Heather Hardy, we let her survive so that I can give fans the chance to see me do things that they have never seen me do like boxing and punching. Previously, my January fight, I finished it in 35 seconds and this fight I finished it in the third round with literally a week of full boxing training since I was training for MMA. Now it's my turn to prepare for Katie Taylor, ”said Serrano, who improved his record to 38-1-1, 28 knockouts.
"Thank God, I have achieved a lot in boxing, but I need to be an undisputed champion and Taylor is the undisputed champion of 135 pounds and for that feat we go," said Serrano.
Serrano versus Taylor is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
