The title bout is on the undercard of the Sept. 13 Devin Haney vs. Zaur Abdullaev pay-per-view card at the Hulu Theater at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

Hardy, 37, has a 2-2-0 MMA record fighting primarily in Bellator, but is unbeaten in the boxing ring. She is coming off a convincing rematch decision win over Shelly Vincent in October 2018.

Serrano, 30, finished Eva Voraberger in January 2019 for the WBO junior bantamweight title. She is a world champion in seven different divisions, with only Manny Pacquiao (8) exceeding her. In 2018, she ventured into MMA and has a 1-0-1 record in two contests.

In addition, the two are good friends, as Serrano explains in an interview with FightHype.

The card will be live-streamed on DAZN in the United States and Sky Sports in the U.K.
