Frampton Vs Martinez confirmed for September 22nd!

Irish super-bantamweight prospect Carl Frampton.
The highly-requested bout between Irish super-bantamweight prospect and EBU champion Kiko Martinez has been confirmed for September 22nd. The fight has been talked about and negotiated for a very long time and has now finally come into place. The EBU title clash will take place in Belfast at the Odyssey Arena.

Kiko Martinez.
Martinez is actually fighting in Ireland this weekend (July 21st) against Dougie Curran. However, this is expected to be a relatively easy bout for Martinez so unless something remarkable happens, it should be an easy victory for Martinez.

This will be a big step up in class for Frampton and if he does get the victory, it will likely line him up for a fight with either Rendall Munroe or Scott Quigg, who are both two big domestic rivals. The 25-year old has looked amazing in his career so far and him and his promoter have been desperate for a chance like this for a very long time.

His Mexican opponent has actually fought in Ireland a few times before. The most memorable was his devastating victory over Bernard Dunne who he dispatched of in just one round. This will also be Martinez's toughest test in a very long time.
