The recent clash between Amanda Serrano and Heather Hardy was a display of terrific striking; both fighters fought well till the last round and landed a lot of punches. Serrano found her way to dominate the rounds, but Hardy’s efforts deserve a round of applause as she took brutal shots yet refused to give up and continued to fight until the last round.
After 10 rounds of aggressive action, the judges declared Amanda Serrano the winner by unanimous decision; along with the win, she was also successful in defending her featherweight belts. It will be very interesting to see who the two fighters decide to fight against next.
Hardy showed toughness; she only lacked dominance – hopefully, in the next match, she will correct the errors. Serrano updated her professional boxing record to 45-2-1 (30 knockouts) and 24-3 (4 knockouts) for Heather Hardy.
Amanda Serrano’s post-fight interview
In the post-fight interview, Amanda Serrano shared her thoughts on Heather Hardy as a friend and an opponent. She is pleased with the win and looks forward to being an example for all women out there to chase their dreams.
“We’ve been friends a long time,” Serrano said, as quoted by dailymail.co.uk. “We struggled in this game. The women now who are coming into this sport, they have it easier than we had”. “I get emotional.
We wanted to give back to Heather what she gave to us,We got paid nothing, absolutely nothing back in the day. She was there when nobody cared about us. Serrano further said: “Now we have an amazing team and an amazing path with MVP (Most Valuable Promotions) that’s given me this opportunity to showcase women’s boxing and to help other women in this sport”.
Amanda Serrano vs Katie Taylor 2 makes the most sense now, and it could happen after Taylor fights Chantelle Cameron for the rematch on 25th November.
