Serrano from Puerto Rico is a tough teak opponent here record is impeccable. From 40 fights she has 38 wins, 28 KO’s and 1 loss. The 31 year old currently holds the WBO and WBC Featherweight titles.
The fight will take place at the Manchester Arena. Taylor will put her 4 belts on the line also. Taylor has fought Cindy Serrano, a sister of Amanda, the Bray woman came out on top 100-90 on all three judges scorecards. Serrano has already begin to start stirring the fight. Just last month speaking to Sirius XM she said Taylor is an “average fighter”. She continued, “She’s an average woman, she’s a girl. I mean, my trainer, Jordan (Maldonado), saw it when she was in there with my sister”.
