New York, NY – On Wednesday night, DiBella Entertainment staged another installment of its popular Broadway Boxing series at New York City’s famed B.B. King Blues Club and Grill in midtown Manhattan in front of a passionate and lively crowd.
Headlining the card, Brooklyn’s female sensation Amanda Serrano, 126, demolished Canadian Olivia Gerula, 123¼, of Winnipeg, inside one round to pick up the WBO world featherweight championship. Serrano stormed out of her corner, quickly overwhelming her opponent with an onslaught of leather before a right hook wobbled Gerula into the ropes to warrant an eight-count. When the action resumed, Serrano immediately swarmed Gerula, finding a home for her overhand right and left hooks to stagger her adversary once again to force a stoppage call at just 1:50 into the contest. With the win, Serrano, 27-1-1 (20 KOs), is now a three-division world champion. Gerula, who had only been stopped twice before, but never this early, dropped to 17-16-2 (3 KOs). Serrano had previously won the IBF junior lightweight belt in 2011 and the WBO lightweight title in 2014.
