Serrano-Ramos women's title bout set for 12 three-minute rounds - ESPN
For the first time since 2007, two women fighters could be in the ring for a title fight just as long as their male counterparts.
When undisputed featherweight champion Amanda Serrano defends her WBA, IBF and WBO belts against Danila Ramos on Oct. 27 at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, the two will fight 12 three-minute rounds, instead of the official 10 two-minute rounds for title fights in women's boxing.
Serrano will defend her titles against Ramos, the WBO mandatory challenger, in a fight approved by all three sanctioning bodies and the Florida Athletic Commission, and put on by Most Valuable Promotions, run by Jake Paul and Nakisa Bidarian.
