Panamanian junior featherweight Shantal “La Fiera” Martínez Rodriguez was born on December 28, 1990 in David, Panama. She trains at the Pedro “Rockero” Alcázar gym, located in Curundú, Panama City.  (She is also known as Chantal, Shantel or Chantall Martinez in media reports).  

Martinez began boxing at age 10 and entered her pro boxing career at age 15 on July 15, 2006 at the Gimnasio Municipal in Anton, Panama, where she lost a three-round unanimous decision to undefeated Carolina Alvarez of Venezuela. Alvarez improved her record to 5-0-1 (2 KO's) with the win.

In a return bout with Carolina Alvarez (110½ lbs) on December 29, 2006 at  Gimnasio Municipal in Anton, Panama, Shantal (109 lbs) who had just turned 16, was knocked out at 1:28 in the first round while Alvarez progressed to 8-0-1 (4 KO's).

Shantal Martinez vs Juseth ArauzOn April 25, 2007 at Centro de Convenciones Atlapa in Panama City, Panama, Shantal (112½ lbs) scored her first professional win with a four-round unanimous (39-37,39-37,39-38) decision over Juseth Araúz (115 lbs) also of Chiriquí, Panama who fell to 1-1 and has not fought again. WBAN learned that "from the first round onwards, Shantal Martínez controlled the fight, hitting Juseth Araúz as and when she wanted, to win by unanimous decision".

Martinez then proceeded to three straight four-round decisions over Kathia Montuto (118 lbs) of Panama, who began the series with a 1-2 (1 KO) record.  For their first fight on September 8, 2007 at Gimnasio del Club de Leones in El Maranon, Panama, Shantal weighed in at 117 lbs and won by a 39-37 margin on all three scorecards. On October 27, 2007 at Centro Recreativo del Educador in Penonome, Panama Shantal (119 lbs) won by a 40-36,40-37,40-37 margin.  In their final fight on March 27, 2008 at Centro de Convenciones Atlapa in Panama City, Shantal (115 lbs) won by a 39-37,40-36,40-36 score.

On August 30, 2008, at Gimnasio Pandeportes-La Basita in her birthplace of David, Panama, Shantal (118 lbs) won a six-round unanimous decision over Kathia Montuto (118 lbs), dropping Monuto's record to 1-7 (1 KO).

On July 21, 2009 at Centro de Convenciones Atlapa in Panama City, Shantal (122 lbs) won a very close seven-round split (68½-65,68½-68,67-68)  decision over previously undefeated Ogleidis "La Nina" Suarez (122 lbs) of Caracas, Venezuela who fell to 8-1-1 ( 4 KO's).  

On January 30, 2010 at Restaurante Arroyo in Mexico City, Jackie Nava (122 lbs) of Tijuana, Mexico overcame a pulled muscle in her right leg to win a ten-round unanimous (98-90, 98-90, 97-91) decision over Shantal (122 lbs) for the interim WBC Junior Featherweight title.  Martinez sent the always aggressive Nava to the canvas with a right to the head in the sixth round but took a steady beating to the head and body for much of the fight as she fell to 8-4-0 (1 KO). Nava improved to 21-3-2 with this win.

On April 22, 2010 at Arena Roberto Duran in Panama City, Shantal (122 lbs) TKO'd Maria Andrea Miranda (121 lbs) of Monitos, Colombia in the sixth round of a scheduled eight-rounder.  Miranda fell to 12-4-0 (7 KO's).

On April 2, 2011 at Arena Roberto Duran in Panama City, Shantal (122 lbs) won a hotly-contested ten-round unanimous (97-93,95-94,95-94) decision over veteran Lisa Brown (122 lbs) of Scarborough, Ontario, Canada for the WBA Junior Featherweight title. The boxers exchanged solid blows throughout the bout but Martinez appeared to tire in the late rounds and was lnocked down in the eighth. "I give thanks to God, to my coaches who did the job and I am happy to be world champion," Martinez said after her victory, which dropped Brown's record to 18-5-3 (5 KO's).. 

On July 2, 2011 at Feria de San Jose in David, Chiriqui, Panama, Shantal (120¾ lbs) won by TKO at 1:11 of the eighth round over Paulina Cardona (120 lbs) of Barranquilla, Colombia for the WBA Junior Featherweight title.

On September 8, 2011 at Arena Roberto Duran in Panama City, Panama, Shantal (122 lbs) defended the WBA Junior Featherweight title with a messy but hard fought ten-round unanimous (98-92,98-94,96-94) decision over Marylin Hernandez (122 lbs) of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.  Hernandez fell to 20-8-0 (12 KO's).

Martinez was knocked down in the fifth round and barely beat the count, but held on to finish the fight.  Martinez said after the fight that she had injured her right hand in the fourth round, but that Nava was a "great fighter" and "the best tonight". Martinez fell to 15-5-0 (6 KO's).while Nava improved to 26-4-3 (11 KO's).
