Amanda Serrano is a 35-year-old southpaw who owns an impressive record of 45-2-1 with 30 Ko’s. She has 222 rounds of experience under her belt since turning pro in 2009 and now resides in Brooklyn, New York. She also has experience in wrestling and mixed martial arts. Serrano stands just over 5-feet-5-inches tall with a 65.5-inch reach and has very good power in her fists with a current knockout ratio of 66.7 per cent but has gone the distance in her last six fights and eight of the last 12. Serrano has won boxing bettors plenty of wagers over her career.
Serrano is a former Staten Island, New York City Golden Gloves, and Empire State Amateur Champion and has won numerous regional and minor pro titles. Since turning pro, she’s also captured the WBC and IBO Featherweight Titles as well as the IBF World Female Super Featherweight, WBO World Female Lightweight, WBO World Female Super Bantamweight, WBO World Female Bantamweight, WBO World Female Super Lightweight, and WBO World Female Super Flyweight Titles.
Her first defeat came at the hands of Frida Walberg in April, 2012 when she lost by a 10-round unanimous decision in a shot at the WBC World Female Super Featherweight Title. She appeared to do enough to beat Katie Taylor in April, 2022, which was a fight-of-the-year candidate, but came out on the wrong end of a split decision for the IBF/WBA/WBC/WBO Lightweight Titles, while her draw came in 2009 in a four-round affair with Ela Nunez. Serrano has weighed between 118 and 138.5 lbs during her pro career and has actually won titles in seven different weight classes.
She also has wins over Sarah Mahfoud, Erika Cruz Hernandez, Kimberly Connor, Fatuma Zarika (twice), Calista Silgado, Yazmin Rivas, Dahianna Santana (twice), Marilyn Hernandez, Eva Voraberger, Daniela Bermudez and Yamileth Mercardo. Serrano has lost just once in the last 10 years over a span of 32 fights. All of her victories have come by way of stoppage or unanimous decision except for her pro debut which was a four-round majority decision over Jackie Trivilino.
The 38-year-old Ramos enters the ring with a record of 12-2 with just 1 Ko and has fought 98 rounds since making her pro debut in 2017 following a short amateur career. Ramos measures 5-feet-6-inches tall with a 69.5-inch reach which puts her just half-an-inch taller than Serrano but with a four-inch reach advantage. As far as power goes, Ramos has very little of it as just one of her wins have come by stoppage for a current knockout ratio of 8.3 per cent. That came back in 2017 in her third fight when she stopped Paula Vieira da Silva in the second round.
Her fist defeat came in 2019 to Elhem Mekhaled by 10-round unanimous decision in a shot at the WBC Interim Featherweight title. Ramos lost again for the same title two fights later as she dropped a 10-round split decision to Katharina Thanderz. She won the vacant Brazilian Featherweight Title in 2020 with a 10-round majority decision over Simone Aparecida da Silva and added the vacant South American Featherweight Belt in February with a 10-round unanimous decision over Julia Gabriela Celes.
Serrano has a very fan-friendly style as she’s an exciting and aggressive boxer enough power to do some damage. She’s one of the top female boxer’s in the world and lets her hands go as often as possible. Ramos is a fine fighter herself, but close to 40 years old and lacks the power to keep Serrano at bay. Ramos will have to use her reach advantage but I don’t think it’s going to be enough as Serrano will eventually walk through her with volume punching and a stoppage is possible due to that and her power.
Serrano’s natural aggression and volume punching should be the difference.
