Combate Americas card heads to USC’s Galen Center on April 26

Unbeaten straw-weight Melissa Martinez of Mexico City will headline Combate Americas’ return to Southern California on April 26 at USC’s Galen Center.

The 21-year-old Martinez (5-0) has finished all but one opponent inside two rounds thanks to her Muay Thai-striking skill as she moves to the meeting against Chicago’s Caroline Gallardo (3-2).

DAZN will stream the fight card beginning at 7 p.m. Pacific.
