The long-awaited mixed martial arts (MMA) debut of professional boxing five-division world champion, Amanda Serrano (0-0) had an opponent change, but of better quality.

Serrano was scheduled to face Mexican Erendira “Aketzaly” Ordóñez (2-1), but due to visa issues, the new opponent is now Californian Corina Herrera (3-4) in a three-round fight at the flyweight division (125 pounds).

Serrano-Herrera will take place on Friday, April 13th at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles, and will feature simultaneous live broadcasts on Univision and Univision Deportes at midnight (12:00 am Eastern Time / 9:00 pm Pacific Time).

“Herrera has fought on the big scenarios and has never been defeated by knockout or submission. She has good stamina, her fights are exciting, she has good defense and has already fought in different weights from 115 pounds to 135. I only hope that our fight is a great fight for all the demanding MMA fans and of course, for my boricua people who are my heart and soul”, said Serrano.

In this fight, 25% of the proceeds from the ticket sales on AXS.com, using the code “BORICUA”, will go to the organization “Voices For Puerto Rico” as part of a campaign led by Serrano, together with its promoter Combate Américas to help those affected by Hurricane Maria, an atmospheric event that passed through Puerto Rico last September.

“We cannot lower our guard. We must continue to help Puerto Rico in all possible ways because six months have passed since the hurricane came and we’ve still not recovered. My respects for the people who and left their families to help others while putting their lives in danger”.
