Emilio Ledezma took on the challenge of Amanda Serrano way too soon. Now Christina after facing legit competition she has managed to send the majority of her opponents to the canvas at least once. Emilio also took on Houston’s reputation for having rigged fights and he said now that the heat was on perhaps things might change. It’s after all a political year and the TDLR’s antics can hurt Rick Perry. Emilio has had boxers from San Antonio emerge as victors in Houston contrary to reputation.
