Carl Frampton-Kiko Martinez II Will Land on BoxNation

BELFAST'S favourite Boxing star Carl Frampton gets his well deserved crack at a World Championship when he challenges former foe Kiko Martinez for the big-punching Spanish boxer's IBF World Super Bantamweight title on Saturday the 6th of September.

The event will be promoted by Cyclone Promotions at a venue in Northern Ireland to be announced shortly and is sure to capture the public's imagination with what will be one of the most intriguing rematches in World Boxing this year.

Both boxers are former European champions and both are in a rich vein of form, having knocked out their last four opponents.

Carl Frampton has been on course for a World title challenge for the past twelve months and has proven that he deserves his shot with convincing wins over the likes of Jeremy Parodi, in a European title defence, and Hugo Cazares, in a World title eliminator.

The man they call 'The Jackal' has quickly become one of the most famous sportsmen in Northern Ireland as well as one of the most feared boxers on the planet with a string of scintillating performances on his home turf.

A jubilant Frampton stated: "I'm over the moon to be fighting for a World title in my hometown, I have to thank my team for making this happen and now it is time for me to deliver. I am fully focused on September the 6th and Kiko Martinez. It's been my dream since I started boxing to become a World champion and I have worked so hard to get this far, now is the time for me to fulfil that dream in front of the best fans in the World."

Cyclone Promotions CEO Barry McGuigan is thrilled to have brought Frampton's World title challenge to Northern Ireland. "It's here! Carl Frampton will be boxing Kiko Martinez at home for the IBF World Super Bantamweight title and we are delighted! Martinez versus Frampton is one of the most exciting fights out there and what a battle it will be on the 6th of September.

Carl has proven time and again that he deserves to be a World champion and now he will get his chance to become one, in the best circumstances possible, without any options on his future and in front of his devoted home fans. Cyclone Promotions have worked tirelessly over the past couple of months to secure this fight and we are overjoyed for Carl. We are in discussions with a number of venues and we will announce the venue of the fight shortly."

I don't know lads, he looked a wee bit worried in his recent interview. Definitely knows he's got a tough task ahead, in fact I think it will be even harder on him this time around. He'll do some things…
