“He didn’t lie because a few days later I got a call that Kiko wants to fight, it’s funny because I beat him five years ago. It was a tough fight and we’re going again where he goes in as a champion. “

Martinez has said: “I came with the same mentality to win and win fast to surprise the world again.
