Jhonatan Romero vs. Kiko Martinez: Preview and Prediction for Title Fight

On Saturday as part of HBO's Boxing After Dark triple-header, IBF super bantamweight champion Jhonatan Romero will face Kiko Martinez.

The 122-pound division is still the home of Guillermo Rigondeaux and Nonito Donaire, but behind those two stars, things are wide open. 

A lot more attention this week has been focused on Daniel Geale vs. Darren Barker at middleweight and Nathan Cleverly vs. Sergey Kovalev at light heavyweight, and for good reason. Both those battles will have an immediate impact at the top of their divisions. 

IBF trinket on the line or not, Romero vs. Martinez just doesn't hold the same significance. 

Just the same, don't be surprised if the smallest fighters on the card end up putting on the fight of the night.
