Video: Amanda Serrano reaction after the fight against Katie Taylor

Shortly after leaving the ring, Puerto Rican Amanda ‘The Real Deal’ Serrano reacted by suggesting a split decision in a close boxing match against 135-pound champion Katie Taylor.

“Hi my people. I didn’t get the decision but I think I fought a great fight,” she wrote alongside the video she posted on her Instagram account.

She also congratulated Taylor “who promised me that we were going to shake the house. I am happy that we made women’s boxing look good.”

“Now I am going to start spending some of this money,” she jokingly added in the caption.

In the video, she also expressed: “To all the fans who saw the fight and who came to support me, I really love you… Sorry I didn’t win, but I’m still a champion.”

The fight was a close one, and more importantly, it may produce a rematch.

In what has so far become the ‘Fight of the Year’, one judge saw Serrano win 96-94 and two others gave Taylor the victory with cards of 97-93, 96-93, in a clash that stole the spotlight to all the men’s boxing fights so far in 2022 and which was witnessed by nearly 19,000 fans at Madison Square Garden in New York.

The clash was the first to feature two women at the Garden.
