This is an undisputed featherweight title fight with Serrano entering as the WBC, IBF, and WBO champion against the WBA titleholder Cruz.
Amanda Serrano’s Betting Outlook vs Cruz
Serrano is among the most accomplished women’s boxers in the history of the sport and is one of the best pound-for-pound on the planet today. The pugilist who has become world champion across seven different weight categories seems to still have a lot in the tank.
She is no stranger to making history with her fights at the world’s most famous arena and Serrano returns to Madison Square Garden to show out once more.
The chance to make history at 126 pounds is there for Serrano who could become the first-ever Puerto Rican boxer to become the undisputed champion in the four-belt era.
Also, a rematch with Katie Taylor looms with their aforementioned classic MSG fight being one of the biggest and most exciting bouts in women’s boxing history. Serrano stands to gain a lot with a win here but also wins big in the long term in a sequel affair with the undisputed lightweight champion.

Serrano added the IBF belt to her featherweight collection last time out and only one piece is missing in this puzzle. Cruz looks to throw a big wrench into all of these plans and really vault herself toward superstar status though.
Erika Cruz’s Betting Outlook vs Serrano
Cruz enters this bout riding a fourteen-fight winning streak and on the heels of her biggest victories so far as a pro boxer.
She has spent the better part of the last two years amid this title reign and is looking to claim some more hardware this weekend while defending her strap for the third time.
That caliber of a win (her second time beating the legendary Mrdjenovich) for Cruz is not to be dismissed and her chances in this fight are greater than would be indicated by the line drawn by oddsmakers.
This is a rare southpaw versus southpaw clash with marginal differences in physiques but chasm-sized gaps in their finishing ability. Serrano clocks in a stoppage rate of 70 percent compared to Cruz’s finishing rate of twenty percent.
Serrano vs Cruz Tale of the Tape
Amanda Serrano vs Erika Cruz Prediction
This prizefight is scheduled for ten rounds and I think this one will be decided by the verdict of the ringside judges.
Cruz has never been finished as a professional and I don’t know that I see that changing in the next few days.
I think there’s good value in seeking out prop bets on this fight going the distance and Serrano winning via decision.
Pick: Amanda Serrano (-600)
