“I’m a fighter too … I’ve been fighting my entire life – I will be fighting for them in every sense I can … to fight for all the lady fighters, and also the men, for this sport to become even bigger…” Kate Del Castillo

“Kate embodies the fierceness, tenacity and passion that defines the Combate Americas brand and its fighters.” says Campbell McLaren, CEO and Founder of Combate Americas. “Kate is now an equity partner and will take on a leadership role in the company and chairs our advisory board, joining our other prestigious investors including Chairman Joe Plumeri, Ambassador Cliff Sobel and John Howard,” he added. 

Kate said she was most drawn to Combate Americas’ embracement and development of Hispanic athletes, the tremendous opportunities it affords female fighters, its global media platform and its potential for the franchise to become the number two sport for Hispanic sports fans worldwide, after soccer. “I am thrilled to join Campbell and the talented leadership team at Combate and will be relentless in helping Combate Americas reach its full potential as the second most popular sport.”

Kate’s most immediate point of focus as an owner will be the upcoming ‘Combate de Reinas’ live television event at Galen Center in Los Angeles on Friday, April 26.  A watershed moment, the event will mark the first time in history that a combat sports event will feature an all-women’s lineup on broadcast television.

’Combate del Reinas’ is a significant feat for women in sports,” said Del Castillo, “and is a clear testimony to the Company’s commitment to female empowerment which I am excited to champion!”
