“I want to thank Jake [Paul] for putting his faith in me and pushing to get me on this card,” said Serrano (40-1-1, 30 KOs), champion from Puerto Rico, at the final pre-fight press conference. “This is going to be two champions going at each other and leaving it all in the ring.”

“These belts are my babies. It’s going to be very hard for her to beat me and take these back to Mexico. She’s going home empty-handed. I thank Mercado for taking the fight, but she’s not winning.”

“I train and fight to be the best in the world. I hope that people can acknowledge that the women are champions as well and that we work as hard as the men. I’m showing everyone that women’s boxing is great too.”

‘We’re going to surprise a lot of people’

Mercado (18-2, 5 KOs), challenger from Mexico, moves up a weight class. She expressed her confidence in coming out victorious. If successful she will become a world champion in two weight classes simultaneously.

“I’m coming up in weight, but I’m one of the biggest fighters at 122,” Mercado said. “I’m not worried at all about going up a division for this fight.”

“I’m very well prepared and I feel strong. I’m confident that I’m going to win on Sunday and prove that I’m up to the challenge. We’re going to surprise a lot of people.”
