Former world champion Elin Cederroos and the undefeated Shadasia Green will fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Continental Americas title this Saturday at the Madison Square Garden in New York.
The bout will be part of the event that will feature Erika Cruz and Amanda Serrano fighting for the undisputed featherweight championship as the main event.
It will be the comeback fight for the Swedish Cederroos, who is coming off the loss of her WBA title and her undefeated record to Franchon Crews-Dezurn in April last year. The European will have a great opportunity to get back to winning ways in a big venue and has worked hard to take advantage of it.
The 33-year-old American Green, who is five years younger than her opponent, is one of the most buzzed about fighters in the division. She has a good knockout capacity and comes into the fight with eight in a row, which shows the great moment she is living.
The fight promises to be even and full of action due to the style of both fighters and will be in the middle of an evening that is very important for women’s boxing due to the prominence that women will have this Saturday at Madison Square Garden.
Cederroos has 8 wins, 1 loss and 4 knockouts, while Green is undefeated in 11 fights, 10 of them won by knockout.
