Seven-Division World Champion Amanda Serrano Scores
Third-Round Knockout In Miami
Seven-division world champion Amanda "The Real Deal" Serrano
(38-1-1, 28 KOs), of Brooklyn, NY, was victorious last night
with a third-round stoppage of Simone Aparecida Da Silva at
the Meridian at Island Gardens in Miami, FL, in a scheduled
eight-round non-title lightweight clash broadcast on DAZN.
Co-promoted by DiBella Entertainment and Matchroom Boxing
USA, the Puerto Rican native dominated the action, dropping
Da Silva late in the second round then punishing her in the
third with a barrage of shots to the head and body until the
referee halted the contest 53 seconds into the frame.
Said the pleased Serrano, "I'm happy to have gotten the ring
work after dedicating the last two months to strictly
wrestling and jiujitsu for my canceled mixed martial arts
fight. Thanks to my promoter, Lou DiBella, who I called and
told that I needed to stay active and, as usual, he came
through. My opponent was tough and game. She had just fought
the very talented Tiara Brown last month so we knew she was
not only in fighting shape but durable to go the distance
"We wanted the work. When I fought Heather Hardy, after the
first round, I took my foot off the gas. With this girl, I
showed once I see you hurt, it's wrap time. True fight fans
knew the difference. I'm happy with my trainer Jordan's
decisions on what to do in the ring. There's always a method
to his madness."
"Amanda Serrano's performance against Simone Da Silva was
yet another reminder that she's the most dangerous lady in
boxing," said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella
Entertainment. "She'll prove that against Katie Taylor when
they meet in what will be the Super Bowl of women's boxing."
