Amanda Serrano is about to add to her legacy
Via Vince D’Writer: Amanda Serrano is a seven-division world champion who has won nine major world titles, and on Saturday night, February 4, Serrano hopes to add to her legacy as she goes up against Erika Cruz (15-1, 3 KOs) for the undisputed featherweight world championship, at the Hulu Theater in Madison Square Garden live on DAZN.
Serrano entered the match as a unified WBC/WBO/IBF champion, while Cruz entered the competition as a WBA belt holder. Both fighters will step into the ring as belt holders, but only one will walk out of the ring with the undisputed featherweight crown.
For Erika Cruz, the February 4 win was a monumental victory, but for Amanda Serrano, the win will be another addition to an already long list of achievements. 34-year-old Serrano has built a career in the style of a storybook, but it looks like the story is far from over as Serrano plans to write more legendary chapters.
Serrano made her professional debut in 2009 when she won her first career win over Jackie Trivilino, and two years later she took her first world title by scoring a second-round TKO victory over Kimberly Connor. Defeating Connor to win the IBF super featherweight belt kicked off Serrano’s hobby of collecting championship golds.
Winning nine major world titles in seven different weight classes is impressive, but Amanda Serrano (43-2-1, 30 KOs) is focused on adding to her formidable list of titles by won the first title. With her win on February 4, Amanda Serrano will become the first Puerto Rican boxer to win the undisputed world title.
While Serrano has made a career to make history, Erika Cruz began writing her boxing history in April 2021 when she won the WBA belt after defeating Jelena Mrdjenovich. Now, Cruz, 32, has set her sights on overcoming a major sadness and winning the undisputed featherweight crown.
Style makes the fight, and these two fighters possess the styles that make this undisputed title fight an exciting one. Serrano is a fighter who is used to pressing forward and controlling the tempo of the match, while Cruz is a fighter who likes to stay in his pocket and launch effective combinations.
The night of February 4 will be an exciting night of boxing, because in addition to the undisputed Serrano-Cruz fight, there is also the main match for the undisputed super featherweight championship when Alycia Baumgardner (13-1), 7 KOs) will face Elhem Mekhaled (15-1, 3 KOs).
Amanda “The Real Deal” Serrano is an incredibly talented boxer from Brooklyn, Puerto Rico who prides herself on her career achievements, family, and Puerto Rican heritage. In a recent social media post, Serrano summarizes his boxing career and what it means to win on February 4.
“Very few Puerto Rican fighters have created some kind of Heritage for our island. I’m happy to say I added some to it. 7th Place Champion, First Nun to win a world title, First Female/Latin to reach 7 characters and soon to be the first undisputed PR Champion. PUERTO RICO I HAVE YOU!”
