Frampton hardly took a step back in that vid . Styles make fights just comparing the Booth Kiko fight Booth was on the back foot most of the fight Kiko was trying to knock him out .Interesting to see if Frampton stands and trades with him hopefully so we see a war .

How can anyone think that Martinez has anything more than a punchers chance if got outboxed by Monroe twice then Frampton should be able to win every round rendall was hardly a great thinker

Munroe has height and reach advantage and he's a southpaw so that would have been tricky .Styles make fights I think this one could be a war and a foty tbh .

Yes but rendall never really won with skill only because he was big and strong and couldtake a shot. Frampton looks the bigger man and he can box much better than munroe could so unless Martinez hits Frampton with a big shot I don't see how else he wins a round, let alone the fight

Frampton said Kiko looks gaunt .That brings me back i'm sure it was McGuigan commentry on the Dunne Kiko fight when Kiko was only 21 and McGuigan said he was huge he'll probably fill out atleast 2 weight classes . He probably sees flaws in Kiko now .Think it could be time to move up ?

All this shite the McGuigans chat about Frampton beating up welterweights in sparring, I don't believe that for a moment. Martinez will test Frampton's chin and defence, Frampton will test Martinez's boxing skills and brain.
I thought after you said Martinez has improved since the Munroe fights, that you were going to highlight what those improvements were. He has always had power, before he fought Munroe.

Got to admit i'm excited about this fight .We know of Framptons nutrition as well but the 21 yr old Kiko that knocked Dunne out against Frampton .Tbh don't know if he's improved or he's a bit weight drained but i'm still pumped for this card .

I can't think of a fight Frampton has took a step back but we know how technically good he is and how many am fights hes had .The pros are different though and in this fight I think a punchers chance is good enough for Kiko because style wise this looks like it's going to be toe to toe . Kiko has ko power but Frampton has a ko on his record as well so I think technically its a 50 50 fight amd a potentail foty .

Just watched the weigh in, both look set for a good tear up. This is all I ask, I know we don't get many 50/50 fights in boxing nowadays but I'm always happy with a 60/40 like this.

Frampton should fight off the back foot, picking off Martinez with quick, sneaking leads and countering off it. He has enough to take him out of his comfort zone and get him off balance which will make his task easier. A comfortable points win IMO.
