Photos: Kiko Martinez's Career Soars With Romero TKO

Atlantic City, New Jersey - Former European champion Kiko Martinez (29-4, 21 KOs) has bounced back in a big way with an unexpected sixth round TKO of previously undefeated Jhonatan “Momo” Romero (23-1, 12 KOs) to capture the IBF super bantamweight championship.

Lampley was builing Romero up as toughguy that survived the streets and and getting shot :D. It goes to show that you can shoot guns and have 50 gang members, but you cant bring any of that into the ring…
