Amanda Serrano vs. Erika Cruz: Fight Details And Everything You Need To Know

Live On DAZN

This Saturday night in New York City, Amanda Serrano (43-2-1, 30 KOS) and Erika Cruz (15-1, 3 KOS) will be the centre of attention for an important night for female boxing, broadcast live on DAZN.

Serrano, a seven-division champion, is arguably one of the best pound-for-pound boxers out there. While she may have come unstuck in a heart-wrenching split-decision loss to the undisputed 135-pound champion Katie Taylor last April, she was able to bounce back by earning victory against Sarah Mahfoud for the defence of her 126-pound titles.

Her opponent this time around, 32-year-old Mexican Cruz, has proven herself to be a formidable fighter. She beat Jelena Mrdjenovich via a technical decision in 2021 due to Mrdjenovich receiving a cut. And then she ran it back with a one-sided beating, showing she belonged at the top. 

In chief support, Alycia Baumgardner takes on Elhem Mekhaled following her pivotal win over Mikaela Mayer to take the IBF, WBC, and WBO 130-pound belts. 

Meanwhile, Elhem has the opportunity to redeem herself despite having had a decisive defeat to Delfine Persoon.
