It is a new dawn for women boxers. Amanda Serrano will fight her opponent in 12 rounds of three minutes each. In women’s boxing history, this fight is the first of its kind. Typically a  women’s pro-boxing fight consists of 12 rounds of two minutes each. But with such an undertaking, what will the fight look like? Fans have chimed in to determine just that.

Serrano earlier fought against Kattie Taylor in what became one of the most spoken-about matchups in recent history. Abe Morales, a combat sport expert, talked about that fight wondering if Serrano vs. Taylor, and the fight between Mikaela Mayer and Maiva Hamadouche could also be a three-minute rounds matchup.

This new rule of boxing has been welcomed with open arms by many fighters in the boxing realm. One such infamous fighter is ‘Problem Child’ Jake Paul. He further predicted that Serrano would win in the 9th round via KO. One advantage of this format of fight is that longer rounds would mean fighters getting more time to land a KO.

Another fighter in this realm, Alycia Baumgardner had earlier expressed her wish to fight against Serrano.  Now, it seems as though it will not happen for a long time owing to Baumgardener failing a drug test. A user referred to the failed opportunity of Serrano vs. Baumgardner.

Another user further mentioned Serrano being just one knockout away from becoming a fighter with the second most knockouts of all time. She currently has 30 knockouts in 48 bouts with 45 wins.

The Peurto Rican fighter has not had any knockout wins in the last few years. She last scored a stoppage in 2021 against Daniela Romina Bermudez. A user further suggested that a 3-minute-round format would allow her to break this streak of hers. Moreover, if she’s able to leverage the extended 60 seconds to score a knockout, the user said it would be a game-changer for women’s boxing.
