January 5th, 2022

Two fighters stand out when looking at the awards for Female fighter of the Year 2021; Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano – two fighters on collision course in 2022.

Undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor defended her titles three times in 2021. Amanda Serrano, who has held world titles in seven different weight classes, faced Daniela Romina Bermudez (KO09), Yamileth Mercado (UD10), Miriam Gutierrez (UD10) in 2021 and has been on an impressive winning streak stretching all the way back to 2012.

Serrano said on Twitter about the past, present, and future of women’s boxing:

“I’m proud of how far we have come, but we still have so far to go. 2022 will be the year for Women’s Boxing and I hope to spark the next generation of young ladies in our beautiful sport. Happy new year to you all!”
