Kiko Martinez’s Boxing Odds & Betting Outlook vs Warrington

Martinez fell short against Warrington during their initial clash in 2017.

The decision defeat in that WBC international title bout was seen as controversial by some. This sequel affair will hopefully remove any and all doubts.

Martinez looks to notch the first successful defense of his IBF crown and looks to even up this series versus Warrington.

While a meaningful world title lies at the center of this fight, it also can lead to even greater opportunities ahead.

Title unification bouts against some of the other top-level featherweights across the scene potentially await the winner of this weekend’s clash.

Martinez looks to maintain his hold on the gold and still be IBF champion after this weekend.

Whereas Warrington is looking to get himself reacquainted with the title belt that he captured from Lee Selby in 2018.

Josh Warrington’s Boxing Odds and Betting Outlook vs Martinez

Warrington aims to become a two-time world champion here and also redirect his career trajectory. After a pair of fights with Mauricio Lara that saw him take his first pro loss and compete to a draw, a return to the win column is much sought after.

If he is able to pivot back towards the form that saw him accrue a thirty-fight winning streak, Warrington can further propel himself towards being one of the best in his weight category.

Martinez has the edge in overall professional experience and has a deeper highlight reel of finishes.

Conversely, Warrington comes into this with that aforementioned victory over Martinez, and that has to inspire a wealth of confidence in this title pursuit.

Kiko Martinez vs Josh Warrington Pick & Prediction

Considering Warringon’s 23 percent finishing rate, I would not go with KO/TKO-related prop bets for him.

The prop on this fight going the distance is positioned at -140 and is a solid bet, in my estimation.

I think the prop bet regarding Warrington winning via points/decision (valued at -125 at DraftKings) is something that will pay off nicely.

Pick: Josh Warrington (-390)
