Johaunna Martinez was born in Pocatello, ID but moved to Billings, MT when she was just seven years old. After trying out other sports, Johaunna decided to follow in her mother’s footsteps and began boxing. Since the moment Johaunna stepped in the ring she was a natural. Within three months of picking up her first pair of gloves, Johaunna had won the National Silver Gloves Championship in her respected weight class. She has gone on to win many more events and has her eyes set on winning the National Junior Olympics. Johaunna’s long term goal is to one day make the USA Boxing Team and represent the country on the biggest stage.
Johaunna’s favorite quote is, “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog” and if you’ve ever seen Johaunna fight, you would know why.
