VIDEO: Carl Frampton vs. Leo Santa Cruz II Final Presser Highlights from Las Vegas
Carl Frampton faces Leo Santa Cruz in a rematch on Saturday night
By Chris Robinson
On Saturday night, Jan. 28, WBA featherweight champion Carl Frampton will face off with former three-division world champion Leo Santa Cruz in a heavily-anticipated rematch set to take place from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nev.
Frampton (23-0, 14 KO’s) lost a hotly-contested majority-decision to Santa Cruz (32-1-1, 18 KO’s) this past July inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and the second encounter is expected to be just as lively as an affair as the first.
On the undercard, former two-division world champion Mikey Garcia (35-0, 29 KO’s) faces off with WBC lightweight champion Dejan Zlaticanin in an attempt to get back into the title ranks. Also seeing action will be IBF featherweight champion Lee Selby, as well as prospects David Benavidez, Josh Taylor, Leduan Barthelemy, Herbert Acevedo, and an interesting clash at lightweight between Demond Brock and Ivan Redkach.
