Background: Serrano’s fight with Ramos fight will be contested under men’s rules, 12 three-minute rounds. The longtime 126-pound queen will be making her third defense this year and fourth in 13 months. She last fought in August, when she nearly shutout Heather Hardy in their rematch in Dallas. The 35-year-old Puerto Rican has won three consecutive fights since losing a decision to 135-pound champ Katie Taylor in April of last year. Serrano has held major titles in a record seven divisions if you don’t count Manny Pacquiao’s Ring Magazine titles. Ramos, a 38-year-old Brazilian, is coming off a break-through split decision victory over Brenda Karen Carbajal in August, which earned her a shot at Serrano.
