  NEW YORK, NY – January 18, 2024 – MVP's Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano and IBF mandatory challenger Nina Meinke face off today for their first pre-fight press conference, hosted by famed combat sports journalist Ariel Helwani, in San Juan, Puerto Rico coinciding with Las Fiestas de San Sebastián. The two will meet in the ring on Saturday, March 2, 2024 at the legendary Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan, live globally on DAZN. Serrano vs. Meinke is sponsored by CELSIUS Live Fit Essential Energy.

Event will be streamed live via MVP's YouTube Channel and dazn.comDAZN YouTube Channel.

Accompanying Serrano and Meinke is Jake “The Problem Child” Paul, who will continue his path towards becoming a world champion in his 10th professional fight as the featured co-main event, fresh off his first-round KO of professional boxer Andre August, WBO junior flyweight world champion Jonathan “Bomba” Gonzalez,  and finally, the young, super flyweight sensation Kystal Roado.

The fight marks Amanda Serrano’s first fight in Puerto Rico since becoming undisputed champion, with a sellout crowd expected to honor her as Puerto Rico’s first-ever undisputed world boxing champion, male or female. Serrano will fight for the second time at 12x3, the men’s championship standard, in defense of her unified IBF, WBO, WBA, IBO, and Ring Magazine featherweight world titles. In a true commitment to change for women’s boxing, Serrano recently vacated her WBC title, as the sanctioning body does not support women’s choice for 12x3.

Serrano vs. Meinke marks the latest in MVP’s series of significant women’s championship fights as the company works to establish equity across the sport. The event follows Amanda Serrano’s first-ever 12x3 unified championship fight vs. challenger Danila Ramos in October and the Paul vs. August special championship feature of MVP’s Shadasia “The Sweet Terminator” Green vs. Franchón Crews-Dezurn for the WBC and WBA super middleweight world titles. Spartan Boxing INC. will serve as the official licensed promoter of Serrano vs. Meinke. 

Jake Paul makes his triumphant return to the ring on Saturday, March 2nd following his first round KO obliteration of Andre August on Friday, December 15th, a jaw dropping right uppercut that made a late KO of the year contender. Paul’s co-main appearance on Serrano vs. Meinke will continue to showcase Paul’s ongoing journey to become a world champion.

Amanda Serrano’s first signed fighters, WBO junior flyweight champion Jonathan “Bomba” Gonzalez and young sensation Krystal Rosado, will each feature on the main card of Serrano vs. Meinke. The 32-year-old Gonzalez made his professional debut in 2011 following an impressive amateur career in which he collected gold medals at both the 2008 Youth World Championships and the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games at flyweight. Bomba Gonzalez won his first title in just his ninth fight as a professional, and has gone on to hold the WBO junior flyweight title since 2021. Rosado, the young 21-year-old sensation, made her MVP and professional debut at MVP’s Most Valuable Prospects II show in August 2023, stunning fans with a ferocious second-round KO against Tarrethia Dixon. Rosado went on to compete on MVP’s historic Serrano vs. Ramos card in October 2023, earning her decisive second win over Hungary’s Kata Pap.

Serrano vs. Meinke will air live globally on DAZN. This event is sponsored by CELSIUS Live Fit Essential Energy. For more information, follow on Twitter via @Serranosisters, @JakePaul, @MostVPromotions, and @DAZNBoxing or on Instagram via @serranosisters, @JakePaul, @MostValuablePromotions, and @DAZNBoxing.
