McGuigan labels recent Marintez and Frampton rematch reports as nonsense

CEO of Cyclone Promotions Barry McGuigan has rubbished suggestions Carl Frampton versus Kiko Martinez for the IBF super bantamweight title is a done deal.

Martinez, who Frampton beat to claim the European title, told Spanish media he had agreed to rematch with ‘The Jackal’ and put his title on the line in Belfast on September 6.

However, Irish boxing legend McGuigan said the claims are ‘nonsense’ stressing the undefeated Belfast puncher is exploring a number of options, with nothing concrete has been confirmed.

“The Martinez rematch is nonsense, McGugian told World Boxing News.

We are talking to all parties including Leo Santa Cruz, Martinez and others, but at the moment we can’t confirm anything
