It’s a bit unclear where their beef came from but Chris Colbert still isn’t a fan of Frank Martin.

Earlier this year, the two jawed nonstop at one another whenever a microphone was present. Over the last few months, however, things have simmered down. It didn’t make much sense for the pair to keep going at each other’s necks. Colbert revealed that he had no interest in competing at 135 pounds and had all the intentions in the world to return to 130 after making a brief appearance.

Now, having thought things through, Colbert (17-1, 6 KOs) is unpacking his bags and getting comfortable. He no longer sees the benefit of sucking down to make weight. With the lightweight division becoming his home away from home, Colbert is making a hit list. At the very top of said list, is a familiar name.

“I still wanna fight Frank Martin,” said Colbert on the PBC Podcast recently.

Martin could use a big fight. After rising to the top of the heap in 2022 following a win over Michel Rivera, Martin’s 2023 has been up and down. For starters, the 28-year-old struggled against fringe contender Artem Harutyunyan. He was then in line to take on Shakur Stevenson. But just when it appeared as though the two would get it on later this year, Martin got up and left the negotiating table.

Fulmination and curse-filled tirades soon followed, both from Stevenson and countless fans. Still, regardless of his recent stretch, Martin is widely considered as one of the best fighters at 135 pounds. Colbert, nevertheless, can’t understand why anyone would give the Detroit native such glowing comments.

Colbert doesn’t loathe Martin, that would be taking it a step too far. With that said, when it comes to just his skills, the New Yorker believes that Martin is your typical run-of-the-mill fighter with little to offer.

“I want to show the world that Frank Martin is an average Joe. Frank Martin is really regular to me. Whatever he’s gonna bring to the table, I’m a be ready for.”
