Lightweights Enrique Gonzalez and Angel Alvarez headline Combate Global Friday night.
The event takes place live from Miami and airs on Paramount+. A pre-show is set for 10:30 p.m. ET with fights beginning at 11 p.m. ET.
Fighting out of Valle Flow Striking in Chicago, Ill., the 23-year-old Gonzalez, who originally hails from Laredo, Texas, will make his first Combate Global appearance of 2022, following a banner year in 2021 when he racked up four victories without a single loss, including three consecutive wins in one night to emerge the winner of a one-night, eight-man lightweight tournament last November 12.
Like Gonzalez, Alvarez, a 27-year-old resident of Miami and native of Cuban capital city Havana, went unbeaten in 2021 over the course of three fights, including his Combate Global promotional debut on October 22, 2021, when he defeated Gerrick Bontekoe by way of unanimous decision.
Other scheduled bouts include Alfrego Ruelas vs. Simone Serra, Alitzel Mariscal vs. Shannon Goughary, Chirsoula Koukouvetakis vs. Katherine Perez and Roger Blanque vs. Carlos Puente Jr.
