Mathis Defeats Serrano In France For Women’s Welter Titles

WBF Women’s Welterweight Champion Anne Sophie Mathis decisively defended her title Saturday night in Yutz, France when she beat Puerto Rican-American challenger Cindy Serrano by wide unanimous decision.

After ten one-sided rounds, where Mathis controlled almost every second and put on a very impressive display of her boxing skills, judges Dominique Schmitt, Jean-Francois Toupin and Arnold Golger all scored the bout 100 – 90.

Cerrano proved to be very game but thoroughly out-gunned, and deserves a lot of credit for making it to the final bell.
The hard-punching Mathis, who hasn’t lost since her second pro fight almost eleven years ago, is now 25-1 (21). Serrano lost for the fourth time in a 15-4-1 (7) career.

Referee in charge of the action was Toni Tiberi from Luxembourg.

“It was very hot in there tonight, but it was a good experience going the distance. She was very tough, and you can’t win by knockout every time. I had her hurt a few times though, but let her off the hook”, said Mathis after the fight.

Mathis, performing at as high a level as ever at age 34, also defended her WIBA title and won the vacant WIBF crown in the process, and is now lined up for a super-fight against American Holy Holm (30-1-3, 9 KOs) in Albuquerque in December.
