Long time respected Spanish warrior and former world champion Kiko Martinez showed he wasn’t done in the sport just yet this past weekend.
A terrific showing against the younger Zelfa Barrett.
Fighting in the UK he lost a unanimous decision but in truth the story of the fight was the scorecards afterwards.
What they were looking at was anyone’s guess.
A real stinker.
118-111, 118-111, 116-113 were read in favor of Barrett.
Two of those terrible for Martinez really.
Promoter of the event Eddie Hearn expressed his own disgust.
Martinez showed at 34 he still has plenty to give in the sport however.
Super-featherweight a solid division at the moment so there’ll be plenty of opportunities again for him.
Barrett moves on with a professional record now reading 25-1-15 KO at this time.
