Torres is ranked No. 6 in the women’s strawweight division. Nicknamed The Tiny Tornado, she is 7-1 but is coming off her only loss -- a tough defeat to Rose Namajunas in April in Tampa. A win over the 27-year-old Rawlings (7-5) could put Tecia a fight or two away from a shot at the title.
A tough fighter and bright young lady, Torres is also obtaining her master's degree in criminology from Florida Atlantic University in (South Florida) Boca Raton. It’s been some journey thus far for the smart and talented combatant who hails from Fall River, Mass.
