The boxing world waits in anticipation for Amanda Serrano to face off against Erika Cruz after her iconic performance against Katie Taylor in 2022 at Madison Square Garden. She will return to the area to fight Erika Cruz for the undisputed world featherweight champion as she looks to become the first-ever Puerto Rico fighter to become an undisputed champion.

The seven-time world champion put on an excellent performance against Katie Taylor with many boxing pundits believing that she should have had her hand raised at the end of the battle. Serrano takes on Cruz with her most recent fight coming against Sarah Mahfound in Manchester which she easily dominated. Her win against Mahfound meant she won the WBO and IBO belts at 126 lbs. The only piece of the jigsaw for Serrano that is missing now is the WBA belt which Erika Cruz currently holds. Cruz won the WBA belt back in 2021 when she beat Jelena Mrdjenovich in Mexico, this was a rematch with Cruz winning both bouts against Jelena, she won the belt on a points decision.

Erika Cruz has the chance to throw a massive spanner in the works as Serrano looks to manoeuvre a way to get a rematch against Katie Taylor under new promoter Jake Paul. She has defended her title successfully with wins coming against Melissa Esquivel by split decision. Cruz has only suffered one defeat in her career coming which was all the way back in 2016, this was her only second professional fight.

The ESPN 2022 women’s fight of the year winner Amanda Serrano began her career in 2019 and there has been one achievement that she hasn’t achieved yet and that is becoming an undisputed champion and she has the chance to do that against Erika Cruz in New York.
