The statement comes on the heels of Amanda's historic decision to fight 12 rounds at three minutes each for her unified title fight vs. Danila on Friday, October 27th, 2023 at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, FL.
Amanda and Danila’s choice was supported by the Florida Athletic Commission, WBO, WBA, and IBF. Now, their colleagues are proud to amplify their decision as they stand up for this precedent and women’s future choice to compete with the same rules as men, should they so choose.
United in support of Amanda and Danila’s CHOICE statement are 25 incredible female fighters: Laila Ali, Ramla Ali, Daniela Bermudez, Evelin Nazarena Bermudez, Chantelle Cameron, Bonnie Canino, Maricela Cornejo, Franchón Crews-Dezurn, Seniesa Estrada, Shadasia Green, Miriam Gutierrez, Christina Hammer, Heather Hardy, Lisa Holewyne, Holly Holm, Natasha Jonas, Sarah Mahfoud, Christy Martin, Mikaela Mayer, Layla McCarter, Maira Moneo, Elena Reid, Krystal Rosado, Britt VanBuskirk, Ann Wolfe.
“I want to thank all of the boxers who are supporting this message of CHOICE. We are advocating for the ability to choose,” said Amanda Serrano. “Female boxers compete in MMA with 5 minute rounds, the same as their male counterparts. Even in bare knuckle boxing, women and men compete with the same rules. Danila and I, on Friday, October 27th, are proud to make history and compete under the same rules as male boxers. This is a fight for women everywhere to be treated the same. Thank you to the Florida Athletic Commission, the sanctioning bodies WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO, Boxlab Promotions and of course my incredible team at Most Valuable Promotions and Jordan Maldonado.”
MVP is proud to support Amanda as both a fighter and true ambassador of women’s boxing alongside the incredible women united by CHOICE.
