Heather Hardy and Amanda Serrano to settle WBO featherweight crown in NYC on Sept. 13
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.
