(DEC 11) Last night at
the Coliseo Cosme Beitia, in Cataño, Puerto Rico, Cindy
fought and won the vacant WBO featherweight World Title, when
she defeated Calixsta Silgado by a ten-round majority decision.
Final judges scores were 95-95, 96-94 and 99-91 for Serrano.
Before the fight last night, Team Serrano
had told WBAN, "Our
original opponent was the rematch with Fatima Zarika who Cindy
had a draw with and recently defeated Alicia Ashley."
At the scales a day before the fight, Cindy Serrano weighed in
at 124¾, and Silgado, 124¾.
Cindy's sister, Amanda "The Real
Deal" Serrano, who is a multi-world champion said after the
fight, "History was made tonight! My sister Cindy joins me as a
legit world champion, and the new WBO Featherweight World
In addition, WBAN believes at
this time that they could be the first sisters in history to be
world champions, but we are still researching that possibility,
and will publish soon more on this topic. Photos/Facebook
