Until there, Serrano arrived carrying his five featherweight titles from the World Boxing Organization, World Boxing Association, International Boxing Federation, the World Boxing Council and the International Boxing Organization.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I would not have become a champion without you, because Puerto Rico had never achieved that and we need to shine. We needed to say: ‘we have all kinds of champions,’ Serrano told those present on the DRD’s Nilmarie Santini court.

The champion Jonathan “Bomba” González, Alberto Machado, and former champions Félix “Tito” Trinidad, Alex “El Nene” Sánchez and Alfredo “El Salsero” Escalera, also attended the tribute. as well as the boxers Kiria Tapia and Stephanie Piñeiro.
