British boxer Josh Warrington makes his long-awaited return to the ring when he defends his WBC International featherweight title against former World Champion Kiko Martinez from Spain at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on Saturday night. (May 13th)

Martinez (36-7-1, 26 KOs) became IBF World Super-Bantamweight Champion in 2013 and made two defences before losing the belt to Carl Frampton in Belfast. The 30-year-old’s other UK outing was also unsuccessful, losing to Scott Quigg in July 2015.A confident Martinez spoke to British Boxers through his interpreter Oscar Zardian, about the upcoming fight, claiming he will “shock Leeds and Josh Warrington.” on Saturday. Martinez also tells us who is the best opponent he has shared a ring with up to now in his illustrious fight career.

Warrington (24-0, 5 KOs) is hoping to secure a World Title shot this year, with two possible UK showdowns against Carl Frampton and Lee Selby in the pipe line if he gets passed the experienced Martinez. Interview by Aky Karim.
