Brooklyn, New York - One of the most successful female boxers in the history of sport, Amanda Serrano, will take part in her third fight in mixed martial arts (MMA) on Friday, June 11, in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico, from the Benito Juárez Auditorium.
Serrano will face Mexico's Valentina Garcia, in a fight that will be broadcast live on the ‘UFC Fight Pass’ platform, as part of an event promoted by iKON Fighting Federation.
“Thank God, the preparation has been very successful with the help of my great friend, MMA fighter Pearl Gonzalez and my coach and manager Jordan Maldonado. I know my opponent is very good at kick boxing, she is aggressive, but I understand that I have everything I need to beat her on her land. That's what I work very hard for,” said Serrano.
"My two MMA fights were against Mexican women and I can only say that you can expect another Latin war between two countries that are passionate about contact sports. We are coming in with everything except fear."
The fight is scheduled for three five minute rounds and taking place at the weight of 125 pounds.
"After the fight against Daniela Bermudez, I rested for a few days and returned fully to the gym because this year promises some great fights and I can't lower my guard," Serrano said.
Regarding Serrano's future plans, manager Jordan Maldonado indicated that, “after this fight we will continue to unify the 126-pound titles in boxing. Amanda already has the WBO, IBO and WBC titles, but she lacks the IBF and WBA titles to be the undisputed champion, which is one of our goals for our Puerto Rican people. Amanda wants them to be proud of her and they will see that she will achieve it."
