Accomplishments drip off these two Puerto-Rican sisters who together have carved a unique path in the world of boxing. As the only siblings to hold women’s World Boxing Championships, Amanda and Cindy Serrano collect title belts like Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw collects shoes.
But they are not limiting themselves as they have branched out into the entertainment industry soon to be appearing in the film “Fight Valley” on one end while running a fashion magazine on the other. “It’s our way to venturing out, you can’t just stay stuck in one place, “ Cindy explained. They are to women’s boxing what the Williams sisters have been to tennis. Sometimes controversial, but dominant in their chosen craft.
Just to prove how tough these sisters are they share the screen with MMA fighters such as Miesha Tate, Holly Holm, and Cris “Cyborg” Justino among others.
They are both multiple-division champions and on December 10th, Cindy Serrano (24-5-3) returns the focus back to the ring where she will be looking to add another world championship in her third division when she faces Calixta Silgado in Puerto Rico for the vacant WBO World female featherweight title.
Amanda, “The Real Deal” who has only lost and drawn once in 32 fights with and she has POWER, 23 knockouts, 10 of them in the first round. She has made history collecting championships in four weight classes, only the second Puerto Rican boxer to accomplish this. Yet she points to Cindy as the door opener that allowed her to enter the sport at a time when women boxers could be counted on two sets of hands.
Cindy has met defeat more often but has carved out memorable wins and has held both the UBF World Lightweight and UBF World Super Featherweight titles. Not bad for someone who entered the sport to lose weight. But Cindy has her eyes on the prize. As she mentioned on their facebook page, “Super Focused and getting ready!” Cindy mentioned, “With this feat I’ll join my sister Amanda as Champion and the Only legitimate female World Champion siblings in boxing today.” Not to mention that they will be the only New York female World Champions should she win the day.
The Serrano sisters have indeed come a long way since appearing on their first cover in 2013. See below, along with that cover shoot’s, behind the scene video shoot.
