This Saturday, over in Belfast, Carl Frampton will be hoping to become Britain?s latest world title holder.

At the Titanic Quarter, Belfast, Frampton will take to the ring in a purpose built 16,000 all-seated stadium hoping that he can, just like he has down before, beat Kiko Martinez.

In circumstances that only boxing can seem to provide, Frampton managed to beat Martinez but then saw his beaten opponent not only get a world title fight first but win it.

But although Frampton has beaten Martinez before he knows he faces a stiff test against the current IBF super-bantamweight title holder.

Last time around there are some who would say Martinez was well on top before Frampton landed the blow that forced a stoppage, others might say he was boxing, on the retreat beautifully.

Talking about his opponent this Saturday, Frampton has remarked to the media,

?He has genuine hatred for me.?

?I don?t hate him, but I wouldn?t say we?re best of friends. You can see it in his eyes, because I?m the only guy to knock him out. He?s very emotional and that?s what makes him dangerous. It?s a bit of an understatement to say I?m looking forward to it. Getting a world title fight at home, at such an historic venue, a stadium being built for me, it?s what dreams are made of.?

Let?s hope Britain gets its next world champion on what will be an atmospheric and very emotional evening.
