Avalos tells Steve Wellings he is next in line for a shot at the IBF title that will be contested by Martinez and Frampton.
WHEN Carl Frampton and Kiko Martinez clash for the Spaniard’s portion of world honours next week there will be one interested spectator across the pond tuning in to see who prevails in the big Belfast blockbuster. California’s Chris Avalos, a 24-year-old with a 24-2 (18) record, sits as IBF super-bantamweight No.1 and will be patiently waiting in line for the winner.
Belfast’s Martin Lindsay will challenge Josh Warrington for his Commonwealth featherweight title on May 17. Lindsay’s title tilt will take place at the First Direct Arena in Leeds and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
