Amanda Serrano will face Sarah Mahfoud this weekend as she looks to bounce back from her loss to Katie Taylor in April.
Serrano, who is managed by social media star Jake Paul, saw her long winning streak come to an end as she moved up to lightweight to fight for Taylor’s world titles.
‘The Real Deal’ lost via split decision and are eager to get a rematch with ‘The Bray Bomber’ soon.
But first, Serrano will return to action on Joe Joyce’s undercard against Joseph Parker in Manchester this weekend and will be eager to put on a show.
Faroese-born Danish fighter Mahfoud is undefeated in her 11 professional fights to date, but has never faced anyone of Serrano’s quality.

This 10-round featherweight clash takes place on Saturday September 24.
It will take place at the AO Arena in Manchester.
It has been confirmed that the fight will be the prequel to Joyce vs. Parker and will start at 9:50 p.m.
