Amanda Serrano beats Camila Reynoso and is new super lightweight champion

The Puerto Rican Amanda Serrano won by unanimous decision to Argentina Yamila Reynoso and is the new super light weight monarch, World Boxing Organization (WBO) version, which was vacant.

In an exciting and historic fight, held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the three judges of the fight saw Serreano as the winner with a score of 99-91 on the cards of all of them.

With the victory, the Puerto Rican based in Brooklyn, becomes the first boxer in the history of professional women’s boxing, winning world titles in six weight categories.

In the male branch, only Mexican American Óscar de la Hoya and Filipino Manny Pacquiao have achieved this feat.

“I’m happy because women’s boxing shined worldwide,” declared Serrano at the conclusion of the fight. “This means everything to me, I work so much and I hope this fight shows the fans that women can fight and we can give everything as men do, we deserve to have this platform and we deserve to be showcased.”

The new world champion also had praise for her rival whom she defined as a great fighter who gave everything in the ring.

“My respects and admiration for Yamila (Reynoso) who came to give everything and forced me to use all my tools to ensure victory,” said Serrano. “It worked hard and here are the results.”

“My opponent came into the ring quite heavy, at 160 pounds, since she used to fight between 147 and 154 pounds, and put more pressure, but I had to box him at several moments of the fight to continue managing my attack and ensure more assaults in my favor, “explained the new champion.

Serrano described the fight as very valid in the face of new challenges that will appear in the future.

“The fight was a very good experience because I had to work to the maximum and now what remains is to continue training hard to keep reaping achievements,” exclaimed Serrano, who has won world titles at 118, 122, 126, 130, 135 pounds and now it adds to its history, the world title of the 140 of the OMB.
