Amanda Serrano Focused on De Saliva, One Eye on Katie Taylor

Seven division world champion Amanda Serrano will stay busy on Thursday, January 30, at the Meridian in Island Gardens, located in the city of Miami, Florida.
A native of the people of Carolina, Puerto Rico, Serrano (37-1-1, 27 KOs) will face Brazil's Simone Aparecida Da Silva (17-14, 6 KOs) in an eight-round bout at the maximum weight of 132 pounds. 
“This fight is [to stay busy] for my big fight in April against the undisputed 135-pound champion Katie Taylor, but I want to make it clear that my focus right now is Da Silva, who despite having not that pretty of a record, is still a strong opponent who has faced the best and endures,” said the nine-time world champion.

Serrano, was scheduled to fight in Puerto Rico on January 25 in the discipline of mixed martial arts, but due to logistical issues the promoter, Combate Americas, had to postpone the event.
“When we were offered to fight in Puerto Rico, we accepted the challenge immediately. We had to change the whole training plan, move to another gym because I was training for boxing. Over time, my manager (Jordan Maldonado) noted that there was almost no promotion of the event and indeed, at the end of December, we were notified that the card was not going to be held and we resumed boxing and adjusting for the Miami fight,” said Serrano.
“I want to dedicate this fight to all Puerto Ricans and Puerto Ricans who have suffered from earthquakes in Puerto Rico. I pray to God every day so that everything returns to normal. See you soon."
Serrano-Da Silva will be carried by DAZN. The headline fight of the event will feature World Boxing Organization middleweight world champion Demetrius Andrade, who in his third starting defense will face Luke Keeler.

Fighting a 17-14, 6 KOs fighter should not even get print. Serrano is way over qualified for that weak opponent.
