Those commentators only saw one guy fighting. Kiko marches in face first but when he gets hit all we hear is "oh lovely shots from Frampton".
Carl seriously outlanded Marinez but anytime he got tagged it was because Framptons defence needs to tighten up!
A fine and entertaining performance from Frampton. Physically, I think he is very strong at this weight. Stopping Martinez was quite a statement and he ate a few banjos along the way too. When a guy brings pressure like Kiko did, you just cannot expect the other guy to keep on his toes all night.
