Philadelphia’s own Raymond “Tito” Serrano scored a convincing 6 round decision victory over fellow Philadelphian Jerome Rodriguez last night, Jan. 20th, 2015, at 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA.
Serrano (20-2 9 KO’s) dominated the action winning easily on all three scorecards, 59-55. Under the promotion of Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing and new manager Mark Cipparone and trainer Raul Rivas, Serrano is once again showing he can be a force to be reckoned with in the Welterweight division.
Serrano looked sharp throwing razor like combinations to both the head and body of Rodriguez (6-2-3 2KO’s) who is not to be taken lightly. Said promoter Joe DeGuardia, “I always thought Raymond could be something special and now that he is in a stable training environment and under good management I am hopeful that he will contend for a world championship someday soon”.
This was Serrano’s second comeback fight after taking nearly a year and a half away from the ring. Star Boxing has plans to bring Serrano back as soon as possible in a featured attraction.
