Saturday: Jimerr Espinosa-Angel Martinez Junior Welterweight Battle Headlines Mexico Fight Night


Mexican Junior welterweight standout Jimerr Espinosa looks to regain his career momentum when he takes on Angel Martinez this Saturday, April 6 in the 10-round main event at Sala Urbana in Naucalpan, Mexico.


Espinosa-Martinez and undercard action will stream live and exclusively in the U.S. on ESPN+ starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Espinosa (15-2, 14 KOs) is a 26-year-old puncher who went 11-0 with 10 knockouts before a December 2021 defeat against Jonathan Escobedo Martinez. He rebounded with a four-fight knockout streak before an impressive showing against U.S. Olympian Tiger Johnson in December. Espinosa overcame Johnson’s quick counterpunching with overhand rights through eight rounds of action. Johnson earned a split decision victory, as one judge had Espinosa ahead by a round. Martinez (15-3-2, 14 KOs), boasting the same number of knockouts as Espinosa, returns following a unanimous decision loss to David Moreno Potrero last April.
