Elder Serrano sister fighting in France
By Michael Woods
NYFightblog readers know about the Fighting Serrano Sisters, Amanda and Cindy. The Brooklyn residents are hoping to be the anti-Klitschkos, and actually sign a contract to fight each other. Older sister Amanda Serrano (age 29; 15-3 record with 7 KOs) is set to fight Frenchwoman Anne Sophie Mathis (24-1 with 21 KOs), a welterweight champion, in Moselle, France today.
I received an email update from her trainer, Jordan Maldonado, late Friday. I'm sharing it with NYFightblog readers. He also texted me, and said he's working on getting a date for Amanda and 22-year-old Cindy, who is 12-0 with 8 KOs, to scrap.
We are here in France, got here Thursday afternoon. Weather is nice! The weigh-in was today, Cindy weighed 145, Anne Sophie Mathis weighed in at 145.5, both right under the scheduled 147 mark. We fight for three titles, the WBF,WIBF & the WIBA welterweight titles, all owned by Sophie. Fight is tomorrow, we are ready although a little disappointed... once again the ref & two judges are from here, the other from Germany. No American judge, but that usually is the case when you fight in someone's backyard. All that can be said is as always we will fight hard & leave it in God's hands! Everything else will be geared against us. She is a big star here! Enough said.
Thank u & will talk soon.
