The ‘Real Deal’ has proved her mettle in the 126-pound weight class with her outstanding performances. She recently fought against Daniela Bermudez, thus claiming a vicious knockout victory in round 10.

With this win, Serrano improved her pro-boxing record to 40-1-1. Out of all her wins, a stupendous 30 has arrived via T/KO. That said, she is a powerful prospect at this weight class and Serrano just wants to continue her momentum in a different weight class now.

Especially since she’s interested in fighting Taylor, she’ll unquestionably have to move up to lightweight as ‘The Bray Bomber’ won’t come down to her weight class.
