Only a mere 44 seconds was enough for Amanda Serrano (30-1-1, 23 KOs) to crush Alexandra Lazar (8-2, 2 KOs), of Hungary, Tuesday night at the WBO Annual Convention at Puerto Rico’s Hotel Caribe Hilton in San Juan.
Serrano came right at Lazar on the opening bell, hammering away and backing Lazar into the corner. Quick barrages to the head and body forces Lazar to turtle up and then down to the canvas only 20 seconds into the match.
After the standing 8 count, Lazar walked back into a full on attacking Serrano as she was forced back into a corner. There was no letup and Lazar sat back to the canvas, prompting Referee Sparkle Lee to halt the championship contest at 0:44 of the opening round.
The TKO victory adds another historical mark for “The Real Deal” Serrano as she becomes a four division champion with addition of this WBO Super Bantamweight Championship.
