Septmember 18, 2012 – NEW YORK – The first sisters of the boxing world, Amanda and Cindy Serrano, have signed an exclusive, multi-year promotional deal with Bob Duffy’s Ring Promotions and event producer David Schuster’s Winner Take All Productions.
“We are thrilled to be promoting the Serranos,” said Duffy. “I’ve watched them mature as fighters over the years and they are completely world class. They are capable of beating anyone in the world within their weight class.”
Cindy Serrano is currently 17-5-2 with 8 knockouts and holds the WIBA International lightweight belt. Amanda Serrano is 15-1-1 with 10 knockouts and is the former IBF super featherweight world champion. Both fighters will be campaigning at 130 pounds.
“I think this is the greatest,” said Jordan Maldonado, the trainer and manager of both Serranos. “I think Dave is a straight-up guy. He’s been very honest with us. The girls feel comfortable with him and that’s very important to me. And I’ve known Bob Duffy forever. He’s an honest promoter and has always tried to do right by the girls.”
Cindy Serrano captured the WIBA title by decisioning Kerri Hill on August 11, while fighting on a Ring Promotions-Winner Take All card. The Serrano sisters and Maldanado all hail from Carolina, Puerto Rico. They currently reside in Brooklyn, New York and train out of the International Boxing and Fitness Gym in Ridgewood, Queens.
“I see the Serrano sisters taking the sport of women’s boxing to an entirely new level,” said Schuster. “They are bright, polite and they can fight! We want to showcase the finest that women’s boxing has to offer and the Serrano sisters is where it all starts.”
Both Cindy and Amanda are coming off knockout victories in the Dominican Republic on September 16.
“I think this is going to be a fantastic team,” said Maldonado. “We are all going to work really hard.”
