How much are you willing to sacrifice for your dreams? For Melody Popravak, who makes her pro debut Saturday night in Atlanta at Underground Showdown, it took a move from Brooklyn to ATL, and a one-year delay due to the pandemic to get to this point. Following her weigh-in against journeywoman opponent Nine Gallegos, Popravak took a moment to discuss her aggressive fighting style, the challenge of being 5’11 and fighting shorter opponents, and how boxing nurtures her wild side.
Underground Showdown is available for streaming on June 19 starting at 5 p.m. ET.
