Kiko Martinez vows to KO Momo Romero

Gary Shaw Productions has confirmed that in association with Thompson Boxing Promotions IBF junior featherweight champion Jhonatan ‘Momo’ Romero (23-0, 12 KOs) will defend against Kiko Martinez (28-4, 20 KOs) on August 17 as the co-feature attraction to Daniel Geale (29-1, 15KOs) vs. Darren Barker (25-1, 16KOs) in HBO. The 12-round championship bout will take place at the Revel Casino-Hotel, Atlantic City.

Romero, who hails from Colombia, recently captured the vacant IBF super bantamweight title when he traveled to Mexico and defeated Alejandro Lopez on his home turf. Ex-Euro champ Martinez, currently rated #15 by the IBF, vows to make Romero’s title reign a short one. “Romero is a very good fighter but he has never faced a powerful puncher like me,” Martinez said. “Once he feels my power he’ll know he’s in for a short night. My goal is get the knockout one way or another. The fans watching will witness an explosive fight from my end.”
