Miriam Gutierrez Suspended Indefinitely After Beatdown By Amanda Serrano

Miriam Gutierrez

Miriam Gutierrez has been suspended indefinitely after losing a one-sided decision to Amanda Serrano on the weekend.

Gutierrez, 38, was facing Serrano in a highly-anticipated bout as if Serrano won, she would face Katie Taylor in a massive fight for women’s boxing. The stakes were high and Serrano delivered as she won a dominant decision as she landed 236 punches that left Gutierrez’s face being disfigured and nearly unrecognizable.

Now, after the loss, the Florida Department of Licensing and Regulation handed out medical suspensions this week and they gave Gutierrez an indefinite suspension.

When the fight went the distance, Serrano was announced as the winner by unanimous decision with the scorecards being 99-91, 99-90, 100-90.

After the fight, Amanda Serrano praised Miriam Gutierrez for her toughness and not backing down.

“I want to thank my dance partner Miriam Gutierrez. She didn’t come to lay down. I don’t care who is in front of me, I’m not coming to play! She just told me she weighed 160lbs today. Thank god I worked with my girl Nisa Rodriguez who was at 165lbs,” Serrano said after the fight. “She’s a tough fighter. She did say she was in better shape this time than when she fought Katie Taylor because she had a year layoff. Now, she just had a fight last month that she won. I fought the best Miriam Gutierrez and I beat her.

“This isn’t a sad or bitter loss, it’s a dignified one, it was a war from the get go until the end. It’s been an honour,” Serrano said. “I wanted to be a complete fighter. The knockout, if it came, it came. But I just wanted to make sure that I beat her. The strategy was to just go out there and just beat her, beat her every single round and dominate her. Just box and show that I’m an all-around fighter. That I could do whatever I want in. I can brawl with her. I can box with her. Body shots, headshots.”
