     Friday, December 17th is the day where 25 year old undefeated junior welterweight boxer Anthony Martinez goes up against his opponent Jaime Orartia at The Four Points Sheraton Inn, in San Diego.  This will be Martinez’s 7th professional fight. 

     Anthony Martinez aka “The Aztec Warrior” was born in Lake Tahoe and has been fighting since the age of 13.  His athletic background in soccer, gymnastics and Tae Kwon Do, as well as his father’s background as an amateur boxer, naturally led him to the sport of boxing.

     Although father Gil Martinez (Xtreme Couture Instructor) was reluctant to allow his sons to take the path of boxing, he finally gave in and ultimately ended up teaching them the skills to make them warriors in the ring.  After only 8 months of training in their garage at home, Anthony and Gil Junior went to The National Boxing Tournament.  Soon after, the boys won State, then beat out their opponents at Regionals, only to quickly advance to Nationals.

     It was at The Silver Glove Nationals of 1997 that John Brown, the owner of Ringside approached the boys and since “has been the biggest supporter to this day.” Anthony Martinez boxed 153 amateur matches with 142 wins and he turned pro at the age of 20.  His record is 6 professional undefeated matches with 5 knockouts.  Martinez is a 10X National Champion and Junior Olympic Boxing Champion (2000), where he received a gold medal and then a bronze and silver at the International Junior Olympics at age 16.  Martinez is signed with Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Productions.

     Outside of the boxing ring, Anthony Martinez enjoys studying The Aztecs and listening to all music genres “except for bluegrass.”  In the future, he aspires to attend college for architecture and mechanical engineering.

     Martinez gets his inspiration from the amateur team that his father trains.  “I want to help them, make it easier for them.  They are like family to me,” says Anthony.
