Serrano also showed respect to Gutiérrez's heart, telling reporters: "I want to thank my dance partner Miriam Gutiérrez. She didn't come to lay down. This isn't a sad or bitter loss. It's a dignified one. It was a war from the get-go until the end. It's been an honour."
Miriam Gutierrez's sole defeat comes to KT Taylor on points. Heavy power puncher Serrano will be looking to stop her in emphatic style and make a real statement before #TaylorSerrano. https://t.co/iVLp24fhRK — EverythingBoxing (@EverythingBoxi2) November 8, 2021
Amanda Serrano now aims a clash against the undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor next year. Taylor also defeated Gutierrez last year and Serrano vs Taylor was about to go down until the coronavirus pandemic led to spoil the mega-clash.
Taylor's promoter said he is confident a deal can soon be signed for the clash against Serrano. "We've been speaking with Most Valuable Promotions and we want to do it here in New York," Hearn told the Daily Mirror in November. "Katie and Serrano fight in December, so I'm looking for the end of April for that fight or something like that."
Talking about the main event, Jake Paul knocked out Tyron Woodley in their rematch on Saturday night (December 19), with a thunderous overhand right in the sixth round to make his professional record to 5-0. Paul also claimed that he is "making history".
