McGuigan: Frampton Wants a Crack at Martinez's Title

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

BARRY McGUIGAN wants to make Carl Frampton as big an Irish boxing legend as he is. The former featherweight world champion promotes Belfast’s unbeaten Frampton, who defends his European ­super-bantamweight title against Jeremy Parodi on Saturday.

And McGuigan hopes Frampton can extend his unbeaten record in order to win a shot at IBF title holder Kiko Martinez.

Frampton stopped Martinez in his last fight in February but the Spaniard rebounded to win the IBF world title in August against Jonathan Romero.

And McGuigan said: “Kiko’s win over Romero reinforced my view that Carl will be a world champion.

“Kiko’s the one that we want and I have already spoken to his people.

“You can never say anything is certain in boxing but money will not be an issue. We have the financial backing to bring Carl’s world title shot to Belfast.

“If Carl does the business against Parodi then his next fight should be for the world title.”

Ryan Burnett on the undercard, also worth watching. He had a fantastic amateur career, and I know Ricky Hatton has very high hopes for him as a pro.

Great choice by mcguigan with a unification after against quigg. Would be huge for British boxing and I would want Quigg to win seeing as he's English but I think Frampton stops Quigg late on
