Amanda Serrano vs Stevie Morgan to feature on Jake Paul undercard

Amanda Serrano vs Stevie Morgan will feature as the chief support to Jake Paul vs Mike Perry in July. Serrano had been due to face Katie Taylor on the Paul vs Tyson undercard until the bout was postponed until later this year.

Serrano vs Morgan will be contested over 10×2 minute rounds. Amanda Serrano has previously advocated for 3 minute rounds and fought her last opponent Heather Hardy in longer rounds. Amanda Serrano will face Katie Taylor in November later this year in 10×2 minute rounds.

The former Undisputed champion Amanda Serrano (46-2-1) spoke ahead of her bout against Stevie Morgan.

“I’ve already been preparing for a fight on Saturday, July 20, and even though I’ll now be waiting a little longer for my rematch with Katie Taylor, this is an opportunity for me to face another tough boxer in Stevie Morgan in Tampa,” said Amanda Serrano. “My opponent has 13 KOs, more than almost every other active female boxer, but I fear no woman – I embrace the war. I look forward to seeing all my Puerto Rican fans in Tampa for my 50th professional fight to show the world my skills at super lightweight, live on DAZN PPV.”

Challenger Stevie Morgan (14-1) has racked up 6 quick victories since a shock Majority Decision loss back in October last year. She also holds 13 KO’s from her 14 victories. Morgan added: 

“We’ve been training for an opportunity like this, and I want to give full respect to Amanda for all she has done in her career and for women’s boxing,” said Stevie Morgan. “In this sport, though, in order to make a name, you have to take a name. I have 13 KOs and nothing will be sweeter than making Amanda Serrano number 14. Come fight night on Saturday, July 20 there will be fireworks!”
