Amanda Serrano overpowered an overmatched Kerri Hill in a scheduled six round bout featured on a nine bout boxing card promoted by New Legend Boxing and Old World Boxing in conjunction with W.O.N. Promotions before a raucous, sell-out crowd of New York boxing fans at Resorts World Casino, in the borough of Queens.
The bout, the seventh contest of the evening, lasted three minutes and seven seconds and to attach the label "one-sided" to the contest qualifies as the "understatement of the night." At no time during the one and one half rounds was Hill ever perceived to be the least bit competitive.
Peek-a-boo defense by Hill...
Serrano who came to the bout at 135, giving up six pounds to Hill, at 141, charged from her corner at the sound of the opening bell and commenced throwing right and left hand punches to the head and body of her adversary, from her southpaw stance. Hill, in response, commenced to retreat around the ring, effecting a "peek-a-boo" defense, both gloves positioned high on either side of her face, retreating as best she could from Serrano's onslaught. This pattern continued for the entirety of the first two minutes. In fairness, Hill may have, at times, thrown a few punches, but the blows were so ineffective against the ever advancing Serrano, that Hill's attempt at an offense went largely unnoticed.
During the one minute break between rounds, referee Sammie Viruet talked with the Hill corner, seemingly urging the fighter show more offense. As a result, Hill began the second round by throwing some left jabs at the still charging Serrano, but this tactic was met by a fusillade of return fire from Serrano in the middle of the ring, prompting Hill to devolve back to her opening round strategy of retreat and cover up. Serrano, sensing the end was near, proceeded to "walk down" the Little Rock fighter, repeatedly driving Hill into the ropes and finally into a neutral corner where Serrano unleashed a two fisted attack that prompted Viruet to step in and mercifully stop the bout.
Serrano, upon the arbiter's signal, stepped back to the middle of the ring, looked out towards the large contingent of fans who had followed her to Queens and shrugged her shoulders in a "what else did you expect" gesture that, in some way, served as a fitting epilogue to the slightly more than three minutes of what could only, charitably, be called a fight.
Serrnao raised her record to 19-1-1, while Hill dropped to 4-26-1.
