Serrano “The Real Deal”, Stops Bermudez

on

San Juan, Puerto Rico March 25th, 2021- It’s a rarity when womens boxing gets the spot light, unfortunately an undeserved neglect has held the feminine warriors out of the main light. Amanda ‘The Real Deal’ Serrano 40-1-1 30KOs met three division titlist and top ten pound for pound champion Daniela Bermudez 29-4-3. Both women came out firing in the first round setting a blazing pace. Serrano firing fast combinations and Bermudez getting inside with big over-hand rights.

After three rounds the difference in skill -level became apparent as Serrano separated hersfel from the Argentinian en-route to making a statement. Brilliant, balanced footwork and effective body punching setup a left-right hook combination to the body for Serrano late in the ninth sending Bermudez to the canvas.

Unable to beat the count Serrano picked up her 30th knockout a rare number in womens pugilism. “The knockout came in the ninth which shows I have power until the end” Serrano said after the fight. “I have the WBO and WBC belts, whoever has the IBF and WBA that’s who I want, I need those belts.” Serrano said in regards to future plans.

The win puts a stamp on Serrano’s name as a worthy main event that can bring male and female fans alike.

Carabllao Stops Leonardo Baez

In the co-main event the eldest of the Baez twins by one-minute Leonardo Baez 18-4 9KOs suffered a knockout loss to hard punching Carlos Caraballo 14-0 14KOs. Caraballo looked sharp and in charge from the opening bell landing sharp two and three punch combinations. After a combination in the second round from Caraballo Baez went down to signal the beginning of the end. The fourth round would be the last bell answered by Baez as Caraballo turned up the heat landing at will. Baez’s corner saw the writing on the wall and threw the towel to save their fighter for another day.

The win announces Caraballo to a national audience in an impressive fashion as Ring City USA closes their tour of Puerto Rico. Caraballo is sure to get another televised spot in a future show.

Eduardo Baez Wins Slugfest

Opening the televised portion of the card Mexican Eduardo Baez 19-1-2 6KOs and Puerto Rican Abimael Ortiz 8-1-1 4KOs waged a good old fashioned Mexico vs Puerto Rico war. Baez started fast with a relentless output that never let up. Ortiz fired crisp shots in between the punches of Baez but couldn’t maintain the same pace as Baez. After eight rounds Baez picked up the unanimous decision victory in a fight that was closer than the 80-72 and 79-73 cards reflected. Baez recently began training with Marcos Caballero who trains Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez in Coachella, California.
