The seven-division world champion (Guinness World Record) conquered Miriam Gutierrez at 135-pounds in the co-main event of Saturday’s Paul-Woodley PPV event in Tampa, Florida.

“I have knockout power throughout all the weight classes, but I do feel stronger at this weight,” Serrano told Fight News before the fight.

The fight was an opportunity to compare Amanda Serrano’s and Katie Taylor’s abilities since Taylor also beat Gutierrez by decision last year.

“A fight with Katie Taylor would be the biggest in women’s boxing history. We’re both top of the pound-for-pound lists, so that’s extremely exciting. We’re both tremendous fighters and we want to prove who’s the best on fight night.

“I like the discipline that it takes for me making 126-pounds, but lightweight is where the big fights are.”

Katie Taylor took care of her business on 11 December after edging out Firuza Sharipova on points in an entertaining fight in Liverpool, England.
