On Thursday, May 15 Dmitry Salita’s Star of David Promotions presents a night of boxing that will be headlined by a battle between undefeated Steve Bujaj (12-0, 9 KO’s) of New York and Junior Wright (10-0, 9 KO’s) of Evanston, Illinois.
One of the featured undercard fights will be a 6-round Super Featherweight bout that will pit one of the best female fighters in the world, Brooklyn’s own Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano (20-1-1, 15 KO’s) against Belinda “Brown Sugar” Laracuente (26-28-3, 9 KO’s).
Besides being one of the best, Serrano always brings excitement as she has a non-stop, come forward style. She boasts a record of 20-1 with 15 knockouts and is currently 6-fight knockout streak.
She is a 4-time champion as she has captured the NABF Featherweight title. The IBF World title with a 2nd round stoppage over Kimberly Conner (9-1-2), the UBF Intercontinental Super Featherweight title as well as the WIBA International Featherweight title.
“Training has been great. I always train hard and camp is coming to a close and I am ready,” said the 25-year old Serrano.
Serrano knows that the 57-fight veteran, Laracuente will be a tough fight for her.
“We knew she would take the fight. She is a tough Puerto Rican like me. She has been around a long time and has fought the best so I consider this a step up. I remember her fighting when I was just starting.”
This will be Serrano’s 2nd bout in Brooklyn (her 1st was the title winning knockout over Connor) and she is very excited about returning home.
“The fans bring something out of you when you fight in Brooklyn. It is something that comes over you.”
Serrano is looking to fight anybody, any place at anytime.
“I will fight anybody between 122 and 135 pounds. Whoever they put in front of me, I will fight. “This is going to be a great fight. We are 2 top Puerto Rican fighters and we will steal the show,” finished Serrano.
