14 months ago, josh warrington looked a mighty relieved last night to get his hands back on on this uh on this belt.
After the stoppage of kiko martinez in seven uh, warrenton began like a whirlwind, dropping martinez with a big right hand in the first but after horror of 2021, having seen his career stall in 2020 during the pandemic on this night, he was simply irresistible after threatening to Stop martinez in the first two rounds with these huge cuts that were opened up, he ended up breaking him down and busting him up before seizing his chance to force the stoppage in the seventh round, which, honestly guys, if you haven’t seen the fight, go watch the Highlights it’s a great fight man, my shout out to josh warrington, you know, big things are coming in this guy’s future.
Definitely uh! You know this is a major win for him.
If you didn’t win this, there was really nowhere left for him to go.
So this has opened up many opportunities for him for the rest of 2022.
You know, warrenton knew this was his last chance and he didn’t need a second invitation at 31.
He is back where he was 14 months ago, a big summer fight with lee wood.
The wba regular champion a fight in the united states against leo santa cruz or emmanuel neverette.
For now, everything is once again possible with this big win.
Last night, a little over a year ago, warrington 31 years old, seemed on the verge of some big fights, but having seen his career stalled by the pandemic in 2020, which affected so many boxers um, you know things fell apart last year.
This was his night um and after a ferocious start, that saw him knock down martinez in the first round um he broke the champion down busted him up with every chance that he got.
He took him out.
Warrington beat martinez in the same venue back in 2017.
Um before he had become a world champion that was his fighting uh.
That’S that’s how he fought last night when he fought him the first time um.
You know he gave the ibf belt away to avoid a rematch with kim galahad in hope that big fights would be coming uh, but he ended up on the wrong end of uh.
The fearsome mauling from um laura a little known mexican uh that you know we’ve profiled on this show before um and his hopes of revenge last year were ended with a clash of heads.
Uh left flora badly cut.
If you guys remember that man that fight ended in a technical draw accidental head, but you know big collision, uh same thing happened.
Last night, man um there’s a couple: accidental headbutts open up a couple open up a cut on the forehead of martinez, but nothing too big uh.
It wasn’t as bad as the last one uh, but it was martina’s second reign as ibf champion.
The first ended in 2014 when he was beaten by the now retired carl frampton and at 36 it is likely that his best days are behind him.
So whether he’s carried on by the emotion or warrenton just had a brilliant start superior martinez with um, he speared martinez, with these jabs and opening up with a series of hooks and uh, you know a wide left hand seemed to just cut martinez on the side Of the nose, uh and honestly martinez, they kept clashing heads man and he ended up with all these cuts.
Martinez was warned for hitting uh on break and then landing one after the bell, but then warren to rush out again and started the second round like he was uh intent on just finishing things there and then uh.
This time martinez took it uh backed up against the ropes and he began firing back and at the end of the third round, warrenton looked to place himself uh for the first time and established his job.
Although martinez escaped the invitation to come forward, throwing hooks over the top of hornson’s guard, uh martinez was uh, starting to look back, uh, looked banged up and believe me guys.
When i tell you he started, look banged up, he was banged up.
Uh warrenton forced him back on the ropes again in the fourth trying to create an opening uh.
There was more control in the fifth as warrington, moved away and walked martinez into a steady stream of counter punches uh cut over his left eye was bat and with a badly damaged nose.
Martinez was lifted off his stool by his quarterman.
To start the sixth uh, the round was tough for martinez who took a lot of punches and looked unsteady on his feet.
You know he walked back over the corner.
Martinez came forward at the start of the seventh round, but warrington landed two big rights at staggered.
Uh martinez martinez, then landed a right in response, but warrington fired a right that sent martinez back onto the ropes uh.
This time there was no escape as wellington opened up with both driving martinez back into the ropes, with no let up until the referee, marcus mcdonald dived in to stop the fight at 212 of the seventh round.
