This is what 236 punches to the face does to you: Female boxer is unrecognisable after brutal ten-round beating while on the undercard for Jake Paul
A female boxer has been left unrecognisable after a brutal ten-round beating that saw her take 236 punches to the face.
The bashing she took was evident in a post-match picture with Serrano in which she sported an extremely swollen face.
Serrano won the lightweight bout in an unanimous decision – 99-91, 99-90, 100-90 – at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida op Saterdag.
She landed 37 punches on Gutierrez’s face in the first round alone before firing off another 199 on her opponent in the remainder of the match.

Speaking after the match, Puerto Rican boxer Serrano thanked Gutierrez and praised her for being tough.
Sy het gese: ‘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.’
The match came 12 months after Gutierrez was beaten unanimously by Katie Taylor, the undisputed women’s world lightweight champion, in November 2020.
Serrano said: ‘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 lay-off.
‘Nou, 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.
‘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. I can brawl with her. I can box with her. Body shots, head shots.’

Serrano and Gutierrez matched up ahead of YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul’s rematch against Tyron Woodley.
The 24-year-old Paul extended his perfect record after sending Woodley face-first into the canvas with a vicious knockout blow in the sixth round.
In a largely uneventful bout, the first five rounds saw little significant action or quality with fans booing the lacklustre display, until Paul delivered a right hand blow that knocked Woodley out cold.
It was Paul’s second victory over former UFC champion Woodley in four months, after his split-decision victory in August, and improved his professional boxing record to 5-0.
The 39-year-old Woodley replaced Paul’s scheduled opponent Tommy Fury, half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson, after the Briton dropped out earlier this month with a broken rib and chest infection.
‘This guy is a legend and respect him for taking the fight on two weeks’ Menigte stap oor New Bondstraat terwyl hulle na mekaar se ritte kyk in 'n Fast and Furious-styl ontmoeting laat gisteraand,’ Paul said in an expletive-laden interview where he called out Fury for withdrawing from the match.
‘It was a tough fight. I had blood in my eyes. I had the job done. I was setting the punch up the whole fight. He didn’t see it coming. Like a lumberjack, timber. It’s got to be the moment of my life.’
Paul has now knocked out all four of his opponents, having previously stopped fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib, former NBA guard Nate Robinson and ex-UFC fighter Ben Askren.
