History and bragging rights are on the line when Amanda Serrano and Erika Cruz face off to determine the undisputed featherweight champion. Their fight will be inside Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater on February 4.
It will be Serrano’s first time in The Garden since she sold out the main theater against Katie Taylor in April 2022. Following a loss against Taylor for lightweight gold, Serrano rebounded with a win over Sarah Mahfoud in September.
Serrano, a seven-division champion, beat Heather Hardy in 2019 for the WBO and WBC featherweight titles. She knocked out Daniela Romina Bermudez in 2021 for the IBO title and beat Mahfoud for the IBF and The Ring belts.
Per ESPN, if Serrano wins the fight against Cruz, she will be the first seven-division title holder to become an undisputed champion.

Cruz made her pro debut in 2016. A silver medalist in the 2011 Pan American Games, Cruz lost the second bout of her career and has won 14 in a row since. In 2021, she beat Jelena Mrdjenovich for the WBA featherweight title after the latter couldn’t continue due to a head clash.
Cruz defended the title twice, her last bout a rematch against Mrdjenovich in September. At one point, the two were supposed to fight one another, but nothing came to fruition. Cruz does not blame herself for negotiations going south and is not intimated by “The Real Deal.”
“The fight against Serrano was not done because sometimes the situation is not fair and balanced for everyone,” Cruz told The Ring. “There are things that needed to be worked out with our promotional companies. We all like to blame the athletes, but sometimes there are things that I cannot do. But I am not afraid of Amanda Serrano.”
Here is how much the two have made in their career and how that sum could affect how much they will make for their fight.
