Magee Warns Frampton: Martinez is Coming For a KO

By Edward Chaykovsky

Eamonn Magee has warned Carl Frampton (18-0, 13KOs) to be fully prepared on Saturday night, when he faces IBF super bantamweight champion Kiko Martinez in a rematch at the Titanic Quarter in Belfast. Frampton will have 16,000 fans in his corner but Martinez will be coming for blood.

The challenger is the betting favorite, due his ninth round TKO win over Martinez from February 2013. Since the loss, Martinez rang off several good victories by knockout and captured the IBF crown.

“Kiko has been thinking about this since Frampton stopped him the last time. He will have been thinking about Frampton when he goes to bed, when he wakes up in the morning and when he is training in the gym," Magee told the Belfast Telegraph.

“I have been there and every waking minute you are thinking about the person who defeated you. Kiko is coming here to win, he is confident after becoming World champion and defending it twice. His preparation could not have been any better."

“Kiko is coming here to knock Carl out. Everyone seems to think Carl is going to stroll through this fight and become World Champion. But this is going to be very tough fight and Kiko is coming here to shock us all. He is not coming here to hand Carl his belt."
