Amanda Serrano v Heather Hardy II Female Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions
Amanda Serrano will feature on the undercard of the Jake Paul versus Nate Diaz fight as she defends her belt against Heather Hardy.
It is understandable that some of the calibre of Serrano will be on a Jake Paul undercard – he needs some credible fighters to help sell the fight.
Serrano is a tough as they come. She has a professional record of 47 fights, two losses and one draw. Her two defeats have come against Katie Taylor and Frida Wallberg.
Since her defeat against Taylor, she has won her last two fights against Sarah Mahfoud and Erika Cruz. That fight with Taylor was in the lightweight division, so she didn’t lose her own titles.
Hardy has only had one fight since she was beaten by Serrano in 2019 on points. That fight was against Jessica Camara in 2021 where she again lost on points.
Hardy’s professional record states she has won 22 of her 25 fights with two defeats and one draw. Her main problem is that her last two fights have spanned over three years, 10 months and eight days when it comes to fight night.
This fight is only happening to boost the PPV numbers, so I cannot see Hardy winning this fight. You can’t have two fights in over three years and expect to beat someone like Serrano.
Back the champion to win by KO in the sixth round and keep hold of her belts.
