Amanda Serrano Hopes For Historic Battle With Erika Cruz
Serrano is coming off of a unanimous decision win against Sarah Mahfoud.
Unified 126-pound champion Amanda Serrano will be hoping to become the undisputed champion at the same weight when she tackles Erika Cruz of Mexico.
This match will take place on February 4 at Madison Square Garden.
In this memorable fight, Serrano will put her belts on the line from the World Boxing Organization, the International Boxing Federation, the World Boxing Council and the International Boxing Organization respectively.
“This is the second time in 140 years that women’s boxing is the main attraction at Madison Square Garden,” said Serrano, who will be taking part in her sixteenth (16) world title fight since she debuted in March 2009.
“… I am very focused on training because I know there will be a lot of action that night. Erika is coming to give everything and so will I. I’m looking to guarantee a victory in style so that my flag moves from side to side throughout the Garden and throughout Puerto Rico.
“The fight with Katie Taylor was very exciting and many analysts saw it as the fight of the year for both women and men. Because of Erika’s style, I believe that there will be another bell-to-bell war that I promise you that it will meet all expectations. What better than having the possibility of facing Katie Taylor again in a duel of undisputed champions in the near future.”
