Showcasing that power early, Serrano landed hard body shots to start round one. She would then land extremely quick hands, from jabs to body to face shots. Gutierrez was getting bombarded with blows and tried holding onto Serrano to halt her aggressive shots. Serrrano, however, continued laying into Gutierrez until the end of the round.

Round two was more of the same, as Serrano was teeing off. She landed hooks to the face body with great volume. Gutierrez threw a few solid blows as well, but they didn't phase Serrano. The latter's shots were harder and with a clear purpose. Serrano then hit a reaching body shot in round three and continued her fast pace.

Gutierrez continued to showcase her grit while her face was being pulverized by Serrano. The latter landed more body shots and was toying with her in round five. Serrano pushed Gutierrez's head back with another blow. By round seven, Serrano started going low. Uppercuts and hooks were the name of the game, while Gutierrez landed a few of her own. Against the ropes, Serrano looked unstoppable.

Round eight was Gutierrez's best round as Serrano was missing her shots. It did not matter, however, as Serrano landed uppercuts through Gutierrez's defense in round nine. Gutierrez's body was open for big blows by Serrano in round ten. While Serrano would get blasted by shots, she would continue to show why she is one of the most powerful punchers in boxing with calculating blows. She swung away at Gutierrez before the final bell.

“I love [attacking ]the body. I love [attacking] the head. I love throwing body shots," Serrano stated. "It feels awesome to get this reception. I have to thank Jake Paul. If it wasn’t for him and him pushing me, none of these people would know who I am."

According to CompuBox, Serrano landed 236 shots compared to Gutierrez's 129. Those shots were the third-most landed against Serrano. Serrano only landed single-digits shots once and landed 40 in the seventh.

Gutierrez is now 2-2 in her last four fights. Serrano is ready for a fight against undisputed champion Katie Taylor, who recently won her fight against Firuza Sharipova on December 11.

“I’m ready for Katie [Taylor]," Serrano went on to say. "I don’t think she’s as strong as Miriam, so I think I’m OK.”
