“Jake’s a very smart young man. Very clever guy. I think he looks at it right now and goes, I could come in here. I could get a great payday for Amanda Serrano, which he obviously likes there and thinks that she deserves.”

A few days back, Serrano fought Yamileth Mercado for her WBC, WBO, and IBO featherweight title defense on the Paul vs Woodley undercard. Serrano got an easy win and put herself on top of the discussions for a fight with the legend, Katie Taylor.
