Amanda Serrano Next Fight With Denmark’s Mahfoud In WBC, IBF, WBO World Title Unification
Per Sources, Puerto Rican Nine-time Seven division world champion, Amanda Serrano (42-2-1) will unify her WBC and WBO Featherweight titles with IBF champion, Denmark’s Sarah Mahfoud (11-0) on the undercard of the much-anticipated heavyweight clash between Joe Joyce and Joseph Parker. The Queensberry Promotions/Frank Warren card takes place on the 24th of September at the Manchester Arena live on BT Sport Box Office. US TV is not confirmed but expected to be ESPN Plus.
Serrano is coming off a split decision defeat to Ireland’s Katie Taylor for the undisputed lightweight titles and turned down a big rematch with Taylor for the second half of 2022. She was supposed to make a mandatory defence on the Jake Paul card at Madison Square Garden before the show was pulled 6 days out due to weight issues with Rahman. Serrano has long wanted a unification fight and now gets it on a card nobody would’ve predicted she would fight on.
Mahfoud, unbeaten in eleven contests, is Ring Magazine’s #3 Featherweight. She won the interim world title in 2020 over Argentina’s Brenda Carabajal, the mandatory for Serrano. Mahfoud was elevated to full world champion soon after and made her sole defence in April of this year against the European champion, Germany’s Nina Meinke (12-2); where she won a closely fought unanimous decision. Mahfoud has never fought outside of her native Denmark and Serrano has never boxed outside the ‘Americas’ region.
