Cruz vs. Esquivel
Melissa Esquivel, DEC
Surprised that not 1 person picking Esquivel! This is the no. 5 vs no. 6 BoxRec ranking. Cruz is coming off a great win but still, these girls are not that different. Really tempted to pick Esquivel just because no one else is!!! Actually, screw it, that's what I'm doing!!

Murillo vs. Mejia
Fabian Gonzalez Murillo, DEC
Eh, 7-3 vs 5_
