Amanda Serrano vs Erika Cruz: Prediction, Odds and Preview
Serrano comes into the contest as the more experienced fighter by a long distance. The ‘Real Deal’ has 46 professional fights to her name compared to Cruz’s 16. Moreover, Cruz does not even have much of an advantage in age, as Serrano is just two years older than her.
When we consider the physical aspects of the two boxers, they match fairly evenly. Serrano stands at 5’5.5” and has a 65.5” punching reach. Cruz stands at 5’6” and has a 64” punching reach. Therefore, there is very little to separate the two, in this aspect.
However, Serrano has the better numbers. Out of her 43 wins, the ‘Real Deal’ has 30 KOs. Cruz, on the other hand, has just three KOs from 15 wins. Therefore, it could be a case of two very distinct fighting styles. Cruz will look to outbox Serrano, while the ‘Real Deal’ will want to put the Mexican’s lights out.
Our prediction: Amanda Serrano beats Erika Cruz by knockout in round 6.
