Here’s that post-fight interview from Warrington with DAZN in full…
Wood unification next for Warrington?
All very respectful from Wood, who steps up to the ring and embraces the two-time world champion.
Asked about a unification, Wood says: “Let him have his night.”
Warrington targets US fight next
A typically entertaining post-fight interview from Warrington, who pays repeated tribute to his adoring home crowd.
As Eddie Hearn says, he’s a different animal when he gets that partisan backing in Leeds.
When asked what comes next, Warrington says he wants a pint, a cheeseburger, a party and sex with his partner… too much information there, Josh!
Asked about a potential unification with WBA champion Leigh Wood, who was on ringside commentary duties for DAZN, Warrington says he is open to a huge contest at the City Ground in Nottingham.
But it sounds like he wants to fight in the US next most of all.
Whatever happens, he says it’s time for an “away day”.
The emotion pours out of Warrington after what is a massive, massive victory.
He celebrates the win with a backflip and then sinks to his knees in the middle of the ring.
Warrington stops Martinez in round seven
Warrington’s spiteful right hand rocks Martinez again midway through the seventh.
The Spaniard absorbs more heavy punishment, but Kiko fires back with a huge right hand!
But Warrington is undeterred as he takes it and then lets his hands go, backing Martinez against the ropes again.
It’s another non-stop barrage and the referee steps in to wave it off!
JOSH WARRINGTON IS THE IBF WORLD FEATHERWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPION ONCE AGAIN!
WHAT A WIN! WHAT A PERFORMANCE! INCREDIBLE!
Martinez vs Warrington
Warrington’s all-out early onslaught has given way to a disciplined, smart and tactically spot-on display that is totally frustrating Martinez.
I think another clash of heads has now opened up a nasty cut on Martinez’s forehead.
So the Spaniard is now bleeding profusely from three separate cuts, with his face totally covered in crimson.
This won’t go on much longer, surely.
The referee wants some of that surface grease removed before the seventh.
Martinez vs Warrington
Martinez was stopped in his tracks twice by Warrington’s thudding power early in that round.
The Leeds man also works through the combinations nicely, switching up the attack from head to body.
Intelligent, disciplined fighting.
But the champion won’t stop coming despite his face being a mess and his vision surely compromised.
A decent right hand from Martinez before the bell.
Referee Marcus McDonnell seeks the doctor’s advice on that cut before the start of the sixth.
