A big time female boxing star is making the move from the professional boxing ring to the MMA cage and that is former five division champion Amanda Serrano.
Serrano has signed a multi-fight deal with Combate Americas and the boxing star makes her debut this March against an opponent yet to be announced.
The boxing star turned MMA fighter is the only female boxer to hold five titles in five different weight classes. Those titles the boxer has won throughout her career include the NABF Female Featherweight Title, IBF Female Super Featherweight Title, WBC Female Super Featherweight Title, UBF Intercontinental Female Super Featherweight Title, UBF Female Featherweight Title, WIBA Female Featherweight Title, WBO Female Lightweight Title, WBO Female Featherweight Title, WBO Female Super Bantamweight Title and the WBO Female Bantamweight Title.
There is still plenty of boxing left in Serrano’s future because she will still box in between MMA bouts, while DiBella Entertainment will continue promoting the boxing side of things. While her pro MMA debut has been announced for March, no future boxing dates have been announced yet.
Former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and momma to be Miesha Tate will serve as Serrano’s co-manager, handling the MMA side of her career.
