Amanda Serrano vs Erika Cruz Prediction & Best Bet

As great as Cruz has looked, her resumé doesn't compare to that of Serrano. "The Real Deal" has racked up accolade after accolade over her storied carried and has performed in the Madison Square Garden spotlight many times. That level of experience alone gives her a massive edge over Cruz.

Serrano has also made a name for herself due to her impressive finishing ability, knocking out 30 of the 46 (65.2%) previous opponents she's faced. Cruz doesn't have the striking ability to keep up with that level of dominance, highlighted by her having not knocked an opponent out in nearly six years.

Cruz does have solid endurance, though, so I could see this one going the distance. With an outright victory not providing much value, I recommend backing Serrano to win by points.
