Amanda Serrano versus Olivia Gerula, Vacant WBO Female World Featherweight Championship

  • In the main event of a DiBella Entertainment five bout card at BB King Blues Club & Grill in Manhattan, Amanda Serrano of Brooklyn, New York, won the vacant WBO Female World Featherweight championship with a first round stoppage of Canadian club fighter Olivia Gerula. Serrano's last opponent did not show up several weeks prior, but the world title bout went forward anyway on promoter Lou DiBella's next card. Serrano came forward with pressure and cut off the ring, leaving Gerula with nowhere to run, and forcing Gerula to go toe-to-toe. Serrano's power head shots were raining down no Gerula, sending Gerula bouncing off the ropes, called a knockdown by referee Ricky Gonzalez. The action then went toe-to-toe for another minute, until Serrano had Gerula helpless on the ropes and viciously assaulted the defenseless Gerula senseless with power head shots. Referee Ricky Gonzalez stopped it after Serrano's beating had continued nonstop. It was all over in the first round, with Serrano, a BoxRec female worldwide number one ranked boxer, maintaining her BoxRec worldwide ratings position without question. Press at ringside did not expect this female world title bout to last very long. It wasn't. .
