This may be a dumb question, but why would they bid for it? I don't see any connection between either fighter and Sergio

Frampton is past Martinez now and has no need to fight him.

Surprised that they have won this and i sincerely hope this isnt a reason for the fight not to happen now. Kiko would still be a very good fight and a massive test.

I would only favour this match being foregone if Quigg/Munroe/Galahad was in the other corner

Can't wait to see how Frampton handles a badass away from home.

What's the connection between Sergio and Kiko...other than the name that is?

Kiko has a good dig on him, still a dangerous opponent but one Frampton can give a miss to as Kiko has pulled out twice.

Be interesting to see how this pans out.

Would be a good learning experience for Frampton to go abroad this. Is Frampton still after the Euro title though or will he defend his inter-thingy belt against 'international opposition'?
