Frampton: Martinez is Emotional, Makes Him Dangerous

By Edward Chaykovsky

Carl Frampton (18-0, 13KOs) will be cautious on Saturday night in Belfast, when he challenges IBF super bantamweight champion Kiko Martinez in a rematch. Although Frampton knocked out Martinez last February, he knows Martinez will be better prepared and packs a very good punch. Martinez exploded following the loss, gaining several notable wins by knockout and capturing the IBF gold

Frampton says Martinez allows his emotions to get the best of him, but that's what makes him very dangerous in the ring.

"He has a genuine hatred for me. I don't hate him, but I wouldn't say we're best friends," said Frampton to BBC Sport. "You can see it in his eyes, because I'm the only guy to knock him out."

"He's very emotional and that's what makes him dangerous, he lets situations get to him. He's a hot-head, he can be very easily agitated but he's coming to win."

Some one said that about Roberto Duran, when he was a lightweight. You can see it in his eyes, Frampton is feeling the heat.
