What up talking fight fans, thanks for tuning in to today’s episode of knuckle up at four with mike orr and cedric ben who’s out on the bike today, and not in the den look at this man getting his getting this workout in while doing the show? What a champion hey look at this, but guys! Yes, you are here for match room, we’re finishing it off this week.
You know what it’s about today is female friday.
So, yes, we are talking about the female that is signed to matt’s room, and that is erica cruz.
If you guys don’t know about her man, let me just tell you about her.
She is a 32 year old, southpaw standing 5-6 with a 64-inch reach out of mexico and honestly 14-1 with three kos.
She is ranked number one in mexico out of the featherweight division and ranked second at 165 in the world man and her last fight.
She is coming off a split decision win against melissa esquivel, which was back uh november, the 26th last year.
Guys it’s been, you know a long time since we’ve seen this girl in the ring.
Uh definitely definitely want to see her uh get back in the ring.
Soon, man she’s not forgotten but she’s a little beast in the ring there and um definitely talk about the you know her for a minute in the center of the ring, but you know she’s still accurate, with her punches.
That’S the reason why the the referee stopped it or the referee said like they cut in the back with some headbutts, but it was from a clean punch that uh that cruz landed.
So you know she likes to stand in the pocket, but she’s feeling very accurate with her hard punches yeah.
So honestly, this girl, right, like there, was a potential mega fight against amanda serrano, that loomed in the horizon for this wb a featherweight uh, erica cruz uh.
If she managed to defeat her counter patriot, the former mexican ambassador teammate melissa esquivel, which he did friday november, the 27th at the international convention center in port of uh, puerto vallarta, uh, mexico and honestly guys, man cruz.
You know native to mexico and raided huge in the city, men and uh.
You know she was in the ring, but in the ring prior to that fight to improve the 14th amendment from the knockouts and honestly man with this win over school.
You know the opportunity for this mega fighter will not really make a fight, but this huge opportunity to fight amanda serrano, but we will see if that is actually going to get underway because of the you know, the big taylor serrano fight that just happened: uh.
If that fight didn’t get underway, we would have saw this girl uh back in action, probably against serrano uh before the taylor fight.
So this is what i’m saying guys.
Don’T forget this girl man uh.
You know i think amanda sereno she’s looking to stay busy.
I know jake paul’s got her staying busy, so it’s one of those things we probably will see this fight happen, amanda, serena versus erica cruz and which, honestly, i think, it’d be make for a great fight man, these two girls, great style, great, punching style volume, punchers Uh, you know they get busy in the ring and they do business man and honestly.
I think it would be a great fight to see uh.
You know cruz versus serrano.
What do you think about that? Yeah yeah yeah for sure, because um both girls will bring it alexa stand in the center of the ring too.
She almost had kaden taylor out in the fifth round of their fight.
Um and cruz has the accuracy and the power to do the same type of damage so yeah man that’d, be that would be crazy for sure if they can make that exactly so guys be on the lookout for this fight to be happening in the near future.
Uh, honestly so sereno’s gon na need some time to you, know wind down off that taylor fight plus.
You know the money she’s not really worried about anything at the moment, but yes be on the lookout for this fight to be happening in the future.
You know erica cruz, she’s, definitely uh earned it and uh.
You know, i think, it’ll be a great fight to see man.
