In a junior welterweight title slug-fest, Amanda Serrano (35-1, 26 KOs) captured a portion of the junior welterweight title, stopping the lesser experienced Yamila Esther Reynoso of Argentina (11-5-3, 8 KOs) by unanimous decision. The once-beaten Serrano came out firing as she would hurt Reynoso several times in the first round with body shots. The pace slowed a bit in the second, but Reynoso picked it up in the third, as the Argentinian started pressuring Serrano—landing some good right hands and left hooks. After a few very close, entertaining rounds, Serrano came on in the sixth, landing some good, hard counter punches. The two combatants finished strong, as both landed some good hard shots. With the win, Serrano captured a record sixth world title. All three judges scored the bout 99-91.
“This means everything to me,” Serrano stated after her historic victory. “I work so hard and I hope this fight shows the fans that girls can fight and we can give it our all just like the men do. We deserve to have this platform and we deserve to be shown.
“She was tough and she came to win. I give her a lot of credit for pushing forward and engaging. I’m hoping to be on SHOWTIME next time. I’m a six-division world champion and I’m ready for anything next.”
Undefeated prospect Chris Colbert showed his excellent boxing skills, defeating the much more experienced Fatiou Fassinou (28-11, 15 KOs) via decision. The Brooklyn native showed his versatility, as he started off using his superior speed and boxing skills, but in round two and three, he stopped and came forward behind his peek-a-boo guard and pressured Fassinou. Fassinou, of Fort Washinton, showed his experience throughout the fight, showing the younger Colbert different looks. However, it was the sharpness and skill of Colbert that would be too much for Fassinou. Colbert tried for the stoppage in the final round, but the tough and experienced Fassinou would see the final bell. All three judges scored the bout 80-72.
In a super lightweight contest, Brooklyn native Richardson Hitchins improved his record to (6-0, 3 KOs) defeating the tough Cesar Valenzuela (7-3, 2 KOs) of Mexico via unanimous decision. Hitchins used his superior speed advantage, landing combinations to both the head and body. Hitchins put a flurry of punches together in round five, stunning Valenzuela several times. However, the Mexican native would see the end. Two Judges scored it 60-53, while one judge scored it 60-52.
In a six-round super flyweight contest, Dylan Price put on an excellent display of speed, timing, defense and counter-punching as he improved his record to (7-0 6 KOs) as he outclassed Mulapi Enjani (4-6-2 2 KOs), en-route to a unanimous decision victory. The Philadelphia native started with this quick jab which flustered Enjani. As the fight went on, Price showed great combination punching, mixing his attack to the head and body. All three judges scored the bout 60-54.
In a non-televised bout, Marsellos Wilder, the younger brother of heavyweight belt-holder Deontay Wilder, scored a first-round stoppage over Ryan Williams. Wilder came out and used his jab early and often. The Alabama native followed up with some right hands and combinations and eventually stopped the overmatched Williams. With the win, Wilder improves his record to 2-0 with two knockouts, while Williams in defeat is now 0-2.
