COMBATE GLOBAL ANNOUNCES STACKED, FIVE-FIGHT BOUT CARD ON FRIDAY, APRIL 15

LIVE UNIVISION AND TUDN IN THE U.S. AND ON TUDN IN MEXICO

FEATHERWEIGHT MAIN EVENT: JAIR PEREZ (MEXICO) VS. LANDRY WARD (USA)

FLYWEIGHT CO-MAIN EVENT: MARITZA SANCHEZ (USA) VS. AITANA ALVAREZ (SPAIN)

 

NEW YORK April 13, 2022 – Combate Global today announced its third Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fight card of the year, headlined by a stellar Mexico vs. USA featherweight (145 pounds) matchup between Jair “El Lupe” Perez (6-2) and undefeated Landry “The Lone Star Kid” Ward (5-0) on Friday, April 15, live on Univision (12 a.m. ET/PT) and TUDN USA (12 a.m. ET/9 p.m. PT) in the U.S. and on TUDN in Mexico (11 p.m. local time).

The 24-year-old Perez of Monterrey, N.L., Mexico will make his seventh-career star in La Jaula, the Combate Global competition cage, where he made his professional debut and where he has posted a nearly unblemished, overall 5-1 record.  He will look to extend his win streak to four consecutive bouts.

Above:  Undefeated Landry “The Lone Star Kid” Ward (right) will put his perfect, 5-0 record on the line against Jair “El Lupe” Perez in Combate Global main event action on Friday, April 15.

 

The 25-year-old Ward has proven himself to be a formidable prospect with a dangerous striking base, thus far, earning victories in both of his Combate Global bouts in 2021.

A former high school football star, Ward relocated last year from his hometown of Forth Worth, Texas to Miami in order to bolster his MMA training regimen.

In the women’s flyweight (125 pounds) co-main event, 24-year-old Maritza Sanchez of El Dorado, Calif. will seek her third straight victory against Combate Global newcomer, 22-year-old Aitana Alvarez (1-2) of San Sebastian, Spain.

A featured flyweight contest and another Mexico vs. USA matchup will pit Rodrigo Garcia (3-1) of Monterrey against “Malicious” Mikey Reyes (6-5) of Oxnard, Calif.

Topping the undercard bill will be an atomweight (105 pounds) matchup between unbeaten Andrea Meneses (2-0) of Gava, Spain and Estefania Irurzo Fernandez (0-3-1) of San Luis Potosi, SLP, Mexico.

Undefeated, rising star Ivan “Titan” Tena (3-0) will collide with Geraldo Almonte (3-3) of Miami in a featherweight affair.
