Six-time boxing champion Amanda Serrano will make her return to world of mixed martial arts against Eréndira Ordoñez at Combate Americas: Meixco vs. USA.

The promotion confirmed the matchup to MMA Fighting on Thursday afternoon.

Serrano (0-0-1 MMA, 35–1–1 boxing) previously fought to a draw in her MMA debut against Corina Herrera at Combate Estrellas 1 in April. Since then, fans saw her return to boxing’s squared circle to secure the vacant WBO light welterweight title with a decision win Yamila Esther Reynoso earlier this month.

The 29-year-old still remains the only female boxer to win world titles in five and six divisions — bantamweight, super bantamweight, featherweight, super featherweight, lightweight and light welterweight. The only other pugilists to reach this milestone are Manny Pacquiao and Oscar De La Hoya.

Ordoñez (2-1 MMA), a three-time San Shou-style kickboxing gold medalist, will be looking to get back into the win column after coming up short against Paulina Vargas at XFL 35 in Aug. 2017.

With the addition of this female scrap, here is how the entire cards stands:

  • Erik “Goyito” Perez vs. John Castaneda
  • Amanda Serrano vs. Eréndira Ordoñez
  • Anthony Birchak vs. Adam Martinez
  • Juan Pablo Gonzalez vs. Mario Bautista
  • Arturo Guzman vs. Kasey Tanner
  • Jair “El Lupe” Perez vs. Peter De La Cruz
  • Misael Iñarritu vs. Peter Quezada

Combate Americas: Mexico vs. USA will go down at the AVA Amphitheater at Del Sol in Tucson, Ariz., on Oct. 13.
