Today at 3 pm EST on Sky Sports in the UK, Carl Frampton challenges Kiko Martinez for the European super bantamweight title in what should be a rollicking main event from the Odyssey Arena in Belfast.
Frampton (15-0, 10 KO) has developed into a super bantamweight contender in a very short amount of time, and has become one of the young standouts of UK boxing. Martinez (27-3, 19 KO) is a very solid and capable fighter himself, currently riding a seven-fight win streak after 2009 defeats to Rendall Munroe and Takalani Ndlovu.
On the undercard, Lee Selby (13-1, 5 KO) defends the British featherweight title against Martin Lindsay (20-1, 7 KO), another challenger who expects to hold some home field advantage on the night. Also, middleweight Andy Lee (28-2, 20 KO) returns, facing Anthony Fitzgerald (13-3, 4 KO) in a comeback bout following Lee's TKO loss to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr last June in Texas.
