Cindy Serrano captures UBF International Title

LONG ISLAND, NY (November 17, 2012) Cindy “Checkmate” Serrano (18-5-2, 8KO’s) of Brooklyn, NY made history Thursday night by becoming the first champion in the newly launched Universal Boxing Federation, Serrano captured the vacant UBF International super featherweight title by earning an six round unanimous decision victory over the tough and rugged South Carolina native Angel Gladney (7-7-1, 6KO’s).

The 30 year old Puerto Rican dominated Gladney in every round with very accurate punching and an arsenal of weapons only a true veteran knows how to effectively administer against their opponent. All three judges scored the contest 60-54 marking it a land slide victory for the fighter known as “Checkmate”.

“After our first chat with Cindy, we knew this is someone we wanted to represent the U.B.F. Cindy has fought for every imaginable title out there, she is a class act and a true ring warrior. We are honored to have Cindy win our first championship. In December her sister Amanda will fight for our world championship.”- said Richard Spilotro of the UBF

Serrano’s trainer/manager Jordan Maldonado went on to say “We are very pleased with the outcome, Cindy is on a three fight win streak and 2013 will be a huge year not only for Cindy but her younger sister Amanda, who will be fighting for three world titles on December 15th. We want to thank our promoter Bob Duffy of Ring Promotions for his continuous support”.
