Sergio Martinez says Kiko Martinez will beat Carl Frampton inside the distance when the pair clash in Betfair’s ‘Unfinished Business’ on February 9 at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast.
The middleweight king manages the European super bantamweight champion who defends his title against unbeaten star Frampton. Sergio is backing his charge to upset Britain’s hottest super bantamweight in his hometown, and believes he will do so in devastating fashion.
“We are very happy for this fight because it’s going to be like a World title eliminator,” said Sergio. “Frampton is a very good fighter but he won’t be able to live with Kiko for a long fight. Kiko is a true champ who has only a goal, to become a World champion.
“I have known Kiko for many years now. He works very, very hard and he is in tremendous shape for this fight. He is the main man in Europe in the super bantamweight division and he’ll prove that in Belfast.”
Sergio Martinez boxed in Belfast back in April 2004 beating Richard Williams in a World title fight at light middleweight, and the 37 year old is looking forward to returning to witness a huge night of boxing.
