One of the women’s boxing premier fighters makes her 2021 debut on Thursday night.
One of women’s boxing’s top pound-for-pound fighters makes their 2021 debut as Amanda Serrano defends her WBC and WBO featherweight titles on Thursday night against Daniela Bermúdez from Plaza del Quinto Centenario in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Serrano, a seven-division world champion, captured the vacant interim WBC and WBO belts in a lopsided unanimous decision victory over Heather Hardy in September 2019. Since losing to Frida Wallberg in April 2012, Serrano has gone on an unbelievable run, having won 25 consecutive fights with 20 of those coming inside the distance. The native of Puerto Rico last fought in December, beating Dahiana Santana via first-round TKO.
Like Serrano, Bermudez, a former three-division world champion, is on a tear of her own. She’s gone unbeaten in 14 straight contests (13-0-1) with five of those wins coming via stoppage. Bermudez earned the crack at Serrano by defeating Cintia Gisela Castillo 12 days before Serrano fought via 10th-round TKO.
Can Serrano prove why she’s one of the premier female boxers in the world? Can Bermudez pull off the upset? Someone’s winning streak is going to go.
Whose streak is going to disappear?
