The last time two women stepped into a title fight and had the opportunity to showcase their skills for the same time that the men are inside of the ring was 2007. That is about to change as Amanda Serrano will defend her WBA, IBF, and WBO belts at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando Florida in a bout scheduled for 12 rounds of 3 minutes instead of the typical 10 rounds of 2 minutes women are usually sanctioned for.

Serrano who will be defending against her WBO Mandatory the fight was approved by three of the four sanctioning bodies as the WBC refused to sanction the rounds for the same length as the men.

Fans of MMA will remember previously Women fighters would compete in 3 minute rounds rather than the same 5 minute rounds as the men. History in MMA was made in 2009 when Cris Cyborg defeated Gina Carano to capture the first World Championship in the main event in a bout that was the first sanctioned by the CSAC giving women the same opportunity to compete as the men.

Will boxing eventually have to allow women 12 rounds of 3 minutes like the men?
