Frida Wallberg v. Amanda Serrano Fight!
Frida Wallberg (11-0, 2 KOs) and Amanda Serrano (14-1-1, 9 KOs) fought a tough, tactical ten round championship fight this past Friday, April 27, 2012 at the Cloetta Center in Linköping, Sweden.
By the time the bout was over, Wallberg had broken Serrano’s unbeaten record for the WBC Women’s Lightweight Championship belt. The battle was fought in Wallberg’s home country of Sweden, and while fighters have complained in the past about the “hometown advantage,” this was clearly not the case here. The judges scored the bout 96-94, 97-93, and 98-92.
“I gave it my all,” Serrano is quoted as saying. “I know I landed some good shots in the fight and I’m not ashamed of my performance. Frida Wallberg is a great fighter and I take nothing away from her victory. I’m going to bounce back from this bump in the road and work my way back to the top. I want to thank all my fans who’ve been there for me and I promise I’ll be back.”
