Kiko still hasn’t moved away from boxing

Doubts are still on the mind of Kiko Martínez (44-12-2, 31 KO) after his last defeat. The former two-division world champion lost a unanimous decision to Reiya Abe (25-3-1, 10 KO) in Japan in an IBF featherweight world eliminator. He commented that if he lost, he would retire. But it is not clear to him. Kiko told AS that he wanted to think it through before making a decision, and that he would take a month and a half off to meditate and assimilate it.

“It was a hard road, paying a lot of tolls, but that’s where the fun lies. Time will tell me what to do. I think a lot about retirement, I think a lot that it’s over, but the truth is that I still don’t feel it. Time will tell me, but I think that if I box again it will be in the super bantamweight,” shared the man from Elche on his Instagram account. Kiko leaves the door open to compete again, he even talks about a new category, although he hasn’t confirmed anything yet.

Kiko continues to train daily and shares these moments on his networks. “Everyone has the right to do what they want, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone,” she wrote in one of her training videos. The man from Elche has been world champion in two different weight classes (feather and super bantamweight). Together with Javier Castillejo, he is the only Spaniard to achieve it. he has also been six times European champion. “I love this sport, so it is very difficult for me to leave the competition”, he explained to AS Kiko upon returning from Japan.

The man from Elche, who has had to travel all over the world to fight, has been grateful for the support that the Spanish public has always offered him. “YouEverybody tells me to retire, to rest now, that it’s all right. But I have to accept that, and I have to assimilate it. I don’t know if I will fight more or not, time will tell me. I think a lot that it’s all right now, about making one last fight. I would love to do one more fight, but maybe it would be non-stop. I think that time will tell me what I have to do and what not”, shared Kiko. The former champion has earned the right to decide.
