On Tuesday, Jan. 17, WBA featherweight champion Carl Frampton shook out for the media ahead of his Jan. 28 rematch with former three-division world champion Leo Santa Cruz. The sequel is set to air on SHOWTIME Championship Boxing from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev.
Frampton (23-1, 14 KO’s) is already in the city, and could be found hosting the press and doing a light workout during media day inside of the Porter Hy-Performance Center just north of the Strip. His first fight with Santa Cruz (32-1-1, 18 KO’s) took place this past July 30 inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, as the Northern Ireland native pulled out a majority decision in an excellent scrap over his rugged Mexican foe.
With the second Santa Cruz clash less than two weeks away, Frampton appears to be in great spirits and excellent shape. Check below for a closer look.
