Kiko Martinez seems to be suffering from sour grapes after his defeat to Carl Frampton in Fenruary.
Belfast boy Frampton stopped Martinez at the Odyssey - but the Spaniard then went on to get his hands on the IBF World title.
Frampton faces Jeremy Parodi at the Odyssey on October 19 in an IBF World title eliminator, so a clash in the future with Kiko is on the cards.
And Martinez has revenge on his mind.
“I’ll say this to Carl Frampton - when I get hold of him, I’ll retire him from the sport of boxing,” Martínez said.
“The beating that I will give him will mean he’ll have to retire, but he has to wait as I have obligations to fulfil.
“If he’s not a coward he’ll fight out of his own country. But as he’s a coward he’ll stay over there.
“He’s a good opponent, he did beat me, but it will be a different Kiko in the rematch and let’s hope it doesn’t take too long to get made. Ideally I’d fight him again in America.
“I had bad luck on that night, I suffered a cut above the eyelid and I couldn’t see. That’s how the sport goes and it was my turn to lose,” Kiko conceded.
“But we both gave a great show to the fans and the public there treated me well, as did Frampton. But he wants the rematch and I’m anxiously awaiting it as well,” he added.
Also on the Odyssey bill on October 19 Jamie Conlan and Eamonn O’Kane will fight for titles.
While a number of other local fighters will also take part.
