Amanda Serrano will be back between the ropes next month.
The nine-time world champion had been set to box earlier this month at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Serrano, who had a history-defining fight with Katie Taylor earlier this year at the same venue for the undisputed lightweight crown, was scheduled to meet Brenda Carabajal on August 6, only for the show to be canned after Jake Paul pulled out of the main event.
The Puerto Rican-born Brooklynite (42-2-1, 30 KOs) is promoted by Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions company and has managed to secure a fight in Britain on September 24.
The reigning WBO, WBC and IBO world champion in the female featherweight ranks has won belts in seven different weight classes and will look to add the IBF featherweight crown to her collection at the AO Arena in Manchester when she takes on Demark’s Sarah Mahfoud.
Their fight will come as part of the supporting cast to the heavyweight fight between Joe Joyce and Joseph Parker, exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office.
In a Queensbury Promotions press release to announce the fight Serrano said:
“I am so excited over the prospect of fighting in the UK. It has been on my to-do list for a long time, with the amazing fans who really get behind the sport, as well as the huge growth in women’s boxing.
“To be fighting in the biggest arena on a big heavyweight night will make it an amazing occasion to win a fourth world championship belt at featherweight.”
Mahfoud (11-0, 3 KOs) is 32 and defended her belt against Nina Meinke over 10 rounds in Copenhagen back in April, having won the interim belt against Carabajal before being elevated to the full champion.
