Amanda Serrano successfully upheld her reigning status against previous sparring partner Heather Hardy.
Amanda Serrano firmly held on to her featherweight championships with a unanimous decision victory over Heather Hardy in a match held in Dallas.
The 34-year-old Puerto Rican Serrano delivered nearly double the punches but had words of admiration for her 41-year-old competitor, post-match. Judges declared the bout scores as 99-91, 100-90, 100-90.
“Heather is a formidable fighter. She’s incredibly resilient,” Serrano commented, speaking of her Brooklyn-based counterpart.
In another match, Serrano’s manager, the popular YouTuber Jake Paul, won against ex-UFC competitor Nate Diaz.
Serrano, who has recently inked a deal with the Professional Fighters League for MMA competition along with Paul, declined to name any potential adversaries following her win.
She secured her position as the undefeated featherweight boxing champion with a victory over Erika Cruz earlier in February, potentially setting the stage for a rematch with Irish boxer Katie Taylor, whom she had lost to in a lightweight match last year.
However, Serrano backed out from the rematch due to injury, and British boxer Chantelle Cameron stepped in, marking Taylor’s first professional loss.
Jake Paul Marks His Seventh Professional Win
Jake Paul, with a subscriber base exceeding 20 million on YouTube, faced fellow American Diaz at the American Airlines Center, marking the same fight card.
Paul rebounded from his first career loss against Tommy Fury in February with his eighth professional match. The 26-year-old managed to knock Diaz down in the fifth round of their ten-round battle.
Diaz, in his professional boxing debut, however, did not make it easy for Paul, pushing him to earn his unanimous points victory. Diaz, 38, had departed UFC after a 15-year career in 2022.
Paul, victorious with scores of 97-92, 98-91, 98-91 from the judges, has proposed a $10m offer to Diaz for a future fight under MMA rules.
