Betting Site: Martinez could now take on Quigg
By Andrew Scott Friday, 3 January 2014 01:37
Scott Quigg wants to take on Kiko Martinez and land a world title unification clash after the Spaniard was able to defend his IBF belt against Jeffrey Mathebula, and many betting sites would be more than happy to see this fight take place.
Pay per head sportsbooks saw that on Saturday night, Martinez, who was the favourite with many people with a betting shop, stopped the South African in the ninth round, and Quigg watched his super-bantamweight opponent from ringside in Spain.
Last month, the Bury fighter kept his WBA belt with a stoppage win over Diego Oscar Silva, and pay per head sportsbooks found out that the fighter is eager to secure a second title if he is able to beat Martinez next year.
He tweeted: “Great win for @MartnezKiko last night. 2014 let’s make a unification fight.”
Price per head services saw that Martinez did not enjoy much success on these shores as Rendall Munroe defeated him twice before Carl Frampton stopped him in the ninth round in February, and many people with a betting shop remember these losses very well.
Frampton, who was also in Spain for the bout, offered Martinez a rematch after the Alicante man took the belt away from Jhonatan Romero in August, but betting sites believe that Quigg will likely to move ahead of him in the line, and many fans wonder what will happen.
Betting shops and pay per head sportsbooks found out that Joe Gallagher, his trainer, called on promoter Eddie Hearn to agree on a deal with Martinez when he tweeted: “Congratulations to @MartnezKiko on a terrific performance tonight @maravillabox @EddieHearn make it happen @scottquigg v Kiko 2014.”
From the opening bell, Martinez was bullying Mathebula, and pay per head sportsbooks saw that the challenger was struggling to endure his relentless assault.

The fighter finally sagged in the ninth as he took a knee after yet another attack, and the match then ended up being waived off by the referee.
