This weekend, World Boxing Association featherweight champion Erika Cruz watched closely from her home in Mexico City the title fight unification between Amanda Serrano and Sarah Mahfoud to see who would win.
Although it wasn’t easy, the 33-year-old Puerto Rican Serrano, who starred alongside Katie Taylor in the women’s fight of the year back in April, pulled off the unanimous decision win over Denmark’s Mahfoud. Serrano won the IBF, WBO and WBC belts. After the fight, she announced that she will go after the WBA belt to become the undisputed champion at 126.
WBA champion Erica Cruz said through her social media that she is ready and prepared for the challenge.
“Dinamita” Cruz comes from a second successful defense against former black and gold belt holder Jelena Mrdjenovich and at 32 years old, she holds a record of 15 wins with 3 knockouts and 1 loss. This clash could be a great opportunity for Cruz to become the first Mexican to be the undisputed champion of a division like 126.
