Martinez: The Beating on Frampton Will Force Stoppage

Kiko Martinez has vowed to stun the Belfast crowd and defeat Carl Frampton when the pair clash on February 9.

Martinez defends his European super-bantamweight title against the undefeated Northern Irishman in the latter's home town.

The Spaniard has promised to take the favourite into the trenches in what promises to be a mouth-watering clash.

"I feel I will win by knockout, or they'll stop the fight cause of the beating I'm going to put on him, that's how I see it in my mind," said Martinez.

"I don't worry about the judges. This is a great country for boxing, it's a serious title up for grabs and it's not Germany or France. They know about boxing here and the judges will be fair.

"I think Frampton will try to run, I think he'll box and he won't go toe-to-toe. I know I'm a lot stronger than him. When I'm in the ring with him, he won't want to fight with me. He knows it, his corner knows it and all of Ireland knows it.

"I'm glad to be fighting in Belfast, people will recognise me more over there for the champion that I am, and they like my style. They know me well and boxing is big there, much bigger than in Spain.

"This fight is taking place where it really should be, in Ireland. This is going to be a big fight for all of Europe."

The fight, which will be live on Sky Sports HD, is supported by Lee Selby vs Martin Lindsay for the British featherweight title plus appearances from Andy Lee, Eamonn O'Kane, Callum Smith and Martin Rogan
