After losing a fantastic lightweight title bout against Katie Taylor in 2022, Amanda Serrano returns to defend her WBC, WBO, IBO, IBF, and The Ring featherweight titles as she faces WBA champion Erika Cruz.
On Saturday February 4, the pair will clash inside Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater for the undisputed champion status.
“This is a pivotal moment, not just for me and my own career but for my home island of Puerto Rico,” Serrano said about the fight. “Earning the opportunity to be an undisputed lineal champion is something most fighters only dream about, but becoming the first boxer from Puerto Rico to be an undisputed champion would make it even more special.”
The Puerto Rican world champion has a record of 43-2-1 with 30 wins via knockout. Her Mexican opponent Cruz record of 15-1, with three wins via knockout
Sweden’s Elin Cederroos returns to action
The stacked fight card also features Swedish former boxing world champion Elin Cederroos who will face the undefeated KO artist Shadasia Green in a 168-pound championship elimination bout. The 10-round fight will take place on the event’s undercard.
Cederroos has a professional record of 8-1, with four wins by knockout. She won the IBF title back in 2018, and two years later, she defeated Alicia Napoleon Espinosa to win the WBA belt.
However, in her last fight, the Swede took her career-first defeat as she lost her IBF and WBA titles to Franchon Crews-Dezurn.
