Serrano Title Fight Announced
From their Wednesday release:
“Today, Most Valuable Promotions (MVP) took another historic step on its mission to advance women in boxing to be treated equal to their male peers, announcing the first ever Women’s Unified Championship bout with the same rules as a Men’s Championship. Seven division boxing world champion and undisputed featherweight champion Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano (45-2-1, 30 KOs) will face mandatory WBO featherweight challenger Danila “A Guerreira” Ramos (12-2, 1 KO) on Friday, October 27th at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, Florida.
Serrano vs. Ramos will be preceded by MVP’s third installment of its Most Valuable Prospects series, presented by Celsius Essential Energy Drinks. The WBO, WBA and IBF world title fight between Serrano and Ramos will be contested at 126 lbs and will set a long-awaited historic precedent in women’s boxing as Serrano vs. Ramos will be contested over 12 three-minute rounds, equal to men’s championship fights.
To date, per the Association of Boxing Commissions and Combative Sports women’s championship fights have been contested as 10 round bouts at 2 minutes per round. Most Valuable Prospects III which precedes Serrano vs. Ramos will be headlined by Antonio Vargas (16-1, 9KOs) as he looks to defend his WBA Continental Americas bantamweight title in a 10 round bout. Serrano vs. Ramos and Most Valuable Prospects III will be available globally on DAZN, with tickets set to go on sale Wednesday, September 13th at www.ticketmaster.com.
Serrano vs. Ramos seeks to set a new standard for women’s boxing, one that hasn’t been seen since Layla McCarter vs. Melissa Hernandez in 2007. This marks over 15 years since the sport has garnered a women’s fight equal to the men’s maximum of 12 rounds at 3 minutes each. Now, with the world watching, Serrano and Ramos will show a new generation of female boxers that they can do anything their male counterparts can do and for the first time ever compete at the same level for a unified world championship title.”
Serrano was last in the ring in early August in Dallas, when she pounded veteran Heather Hardy in a rematch over 10 rounds for a lopsided decision win in Dallas on the undercard of Jake Paul’s win over Nate Diaz in Dallas. That victory came on the heels of Serrano winning a bloody slugfest with Erika Cruz over 10 rounds in New York to once again defend her featherweight world titles.
Serrano is one of the most marketable females in the sport and has talked for the last couple of years about women’s fights having longer rounds as a bigger test for possible knockdowns and knockouts.
She said in the MVP statement,
“Danila Ramos may be my WBO mandatory challenger, but when we step in the ring, she will understand exactly why I am the undisputed featherweight champion,” said Amanda Serrano. “But this fight is about more than some belts. We have faced a long and hard battle, united as women, to achieve the same pay, respect, and recognition in boxing. Together, on Friday, October 27th, we will make history and prove to the world once again, how incredible women’s boxing is and that we are just as tough, dynamic, and capable as any man in the ring, if not more so. This is a fight for women everywhere to be treated the same as their male counterparts.”
Ramos is from Argentina, but fights now out of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and became the WBO mandatory featherweight challenger on August 28th. This came on the heels of Ramos’ August 18th win to capture the WBO interim world championship via a split decision over Brenda Karen Carbajal in Buenos Aires.
Ramos said in the MVP statement that she wants the challenge of three minute rounds in a world title fight,
“Fighting Amanda Serrano for 12 three-minute rounds for a Unified Championship is set to break the barriers that we women have been looking to do for many years. We will go down in history and in the books, it will be a fight of two women warriors! I am preparing like never before for this fight and will proudly represent Brazil as we battle in Orlando, Florida and I look to bring all the belts home.”
Serrano was previously part of the massively attended and lucrative showdown with undisputed lightweight champ Katie Taylor at Madison Square Garden in New York in May of 2022. Serrano lost a close, disputed decision to Taylor and has been angling for a rematch.
