Serrano, featherweight champion of the World Boxing Council (WBC) and the World Organization (WBO), referred to how complicated it was for women to break through at the beginning of their careers and is glad to see how things have changed for the better.

“It was hard for me and all of us women to break through early in our careers. Now we get more and better opportunities, I am happy to see it, live it and be one of the fighters who open doors for women“, Said the 33-year-old Puerto Rican.

In this fight, the Caribbean woman will risk her WBC and WBO titles with the goal of conquering that of the International Boxing Federation that is in the hands of Sarah Mahfoud. If he achieves his goal, he will only need the World Association belt, which belongs to the Mexican Erika Cruz.
