Kiko Martinez’s Boxing Odds & Betting Outlook vs Galahad
Martinez has over fifty pro bouts to his credit and has been in multiple world championship contests through that stretch.
He was the IBF super bantamweight world champion and logged several successful defenses of that belt during his reign.
Many see this as Kiko Martinez’s last crack at a world championship. He looks to go back to back in a big way after his last win over Jayro Duran re-entered him into the win column.
Martinez stepped up in weight and had two bids at featherweight gold not pan out. He aims to showcase that the third time’s the charm this weekend and become a two-division world champion in the process.
Galahad is a few years younger than the seasoned contender and looks to adjust Martinez’s title bid record at featherweight to 0-3.

Kid Galahad vs Kiko Martinez Pick & Prediction
Ultimately, I think Galahad will be able to win over the distance.
I foresee the judges’ scorecards playing a role in the outcome of this one. Though Kid Galahad has back-to-back finishes, Martinez generally does not get stopped in his defeats and has shown durability against some top-of-the-heap guys.
Prop bets on this fight going the distance and Galahad winning via decision/points would present solid value and would be worth pursuing, in my estimation.
