Warrington vs Martinez Headline Leeds This Saturday – This Saturday in Leeds, England, Josh Warrington defends his undefeated record and WBC International featherweight title against the challenge of former world champion Kiko Martinez of Spain.
Warrington won the WBC International belt back in April of 2015 and has made two successful defenses. Martinez is moving up to the featherweight class, as he held the IBF world title at super bantamweight back in 2013-2014. Martinez is also well known to British fans for his two appearance on the British Isles where he faced Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton in world title fights. Warrington is clearly looking to take the next step up in terms of competition level in this fight. Will Martinez be serviceable in the new weight class?
