Needless to say, Serrano was of a different opinion, and did not quite agree with the result, and rightfully so. It was a fight that could have gone either way, and the crowd inside the MSG was respectful enough to let both the female boxers cherish the moment.
As Serrano opined how she felt she won the bout, Taylor immediately shot up the offer of a rematch. “Let’s run it again, Amanda.” The Undisputed Lightweight Champion announced, much to the cheers and applause of boxing fans in New York.
