Frampton vs Santa Cruz Talk With Frank Lotierzo – The rematch between Leo Santa Cruz and Carl Frampton is just days away. The fight, which airs on Showtime, goes down at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and is the main event of a nine-fight card that also features two other world title fights. WBC world lightweight champion Dejan Zlaticanin defends his title against Mikey Garcia and IBF world featherweight champion Lee Selby risks his belt against Jonathan Victor Barrios in the other title fights.
The WBA world featherweight title changed hands last July 30th as Carl Frampton won a hard fought majority decision over the previously unbeaten Leo Santa Cruz to take the title. Santa Cruz, now 32-1-1, immediately invoked his rematch clause and the rematch is finally here this Saturday.
