Combate Americas signs top 5 P4P women’s boxer Amanda Serrano
Puerto Rican prizefighter Amanda Serrano is the only women’s boxer to win world titles in five divisions. Serrano is ranked as the world’s fifth best female boxer, pound for pound, by BoxRec. And she is coming to mixed martial arts, specifically Combate Americas’ La Jaula.
In 2017 Serrano appeared on Ariel Helwani’s The MMA Hour and announced her intention to compete in MMA. Managed by former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate’s AO8 Management, Serrano, 29, is now signed with the surging Combate Americas to an exclusive multi-year contract. Serrano will continue to box for Lou DiBella’s DiBella Entertainment.
“Ok Ppl’s here it is u wanted to know who I signed with!” She wrote on her social network. “@combateamericas It Is!! Thanks @campbellcombate for the opportunity to be part of your amazing company. My team especially @MieshaTate who help make the decision an easy one with her knowledge of the sport. Let’s Get It!!”
Serrano is expected to debut at a Combate Americas event in March; the division, opponent, and date are TBA.
Knockouts + Highlights:
Fighting is in Latino blood, but it’s REALLY in Serrano blood. Amanda’s sister Cindy is the WBO 126lb World Champion.
The first Hispanic mixed martial arts sports and media franchise, Combate Americas was founded in August 2011 by UFC co-founder Campbell McLaren, and premiered on Mun2 on February 23, 2014. The promotion has partnered with TV Azteca, the second-largest mass media company in Mexico, and with Telemundo in the US, among many others, and is breaking records. If the boxer Serrano surges like Holly Holm before here, so could become a media force.
