In a matter of one minute and fifty seconds, Amanda Serrano (27-1-1, 20 KOs) pressed Canada’s Olivia Gerula (17-16-2, 3 KOs) and battered her into submission for the vacant WBO Featherweight title.
On DiBella Entertainment’s Broadway Boxing card Wednesday at the B.B. King Blues Club and Grill in Manhattan, Serrano displayed her typical polished self in the quick destruction of another foe.
Gerula never seemed to have much of a chance from the moment she met Serrano in the middle of the ring at the opening bell.
Serrano stood steady as she came forward with stiff jabs. Her jabs just setup the left to the body followed by the quick and brutal right hook that sent Gerula stumbling helplessly into the ropes only 15 seconds in. The referee swiftly intervened to issue the standing 8 count.
Serrano came right back with constant barrage of rights and lefts. Gerula could not escape the attacking distance of Serrano.
Serrano’s relentless attacks kept cutting off the ring and escape routes for Gerula. The champ’s stellar fitness kept pushing her opponent into the ropes where the heavy rights started to deliver the end.
At 1:50, the championship bout was stopped as Gerula withstood enough punishment with little opposition offense.
“The Real Deal” Serrano keeps living up to her name as she possesses the power that is unfamiliar in the female game.
Who’s next for the Champ?!
Lou DiBella is forming a quality stable of female champions, as Serrano claims another title shortly after signing with the promoter.
