Kiko Martinez-Carl Frampton Heads To January 26th

By Per Ake Persson

Maravilla Box Management will now stage Kiko Martinez´s defense of the EBU super bantamweight title against mandatory challenger Carl Frampton, 15-0, on January 26 in Spain with exact site to be announced.
 
MBM won the purse bids for the fight October 1 although it was first scheduled for September in Northern Ireland but Martinez, 27-3, pulled out due to an injury. Frampton fought Steve Molitor instead and won. Mandatory challenger was then Alexander Bakhtin but he pulled out and Frampton got that spot and now Martinez vs Frampton is finally on again.
 
And yes, Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez is the boss of Maravilla Box Management.

Highly doubt it's in Spain. Most likely will be in Belfast like someone mentioned.

Hopefully it doesn't fall through.

The fight is in the Uk. Sergio Martinez already confirmed it. Probably in Belfast.

third time lucky, hopefully it comes of this time. Read about a week ago that this was pretty much a done deal, but surprised its in Spain. When it was first signed a year ago i picked Kiko to win…

Home advantage counts in this fight. If it was in Ireland id take Frampton but since its in Spain I think Martinez will win
