Frampton-Santa Cruz Set for MGM Grand
In one of the finest fights of 2016, Carl Frampton defeated Leo Santa Cruz to capture the WBA super-featherweight title. Given the quality of the closely-fought contest, Frampton (23-0, 14 KOs) and Santa Cruz (32-1-1, 18 KOs) will rematch in a Premier Boxing Champions event on Jan. 28.
The fight will go down at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Frampton and Santa Cruz begin a media tour this week to promote the fight, and both offered thoughts about the upcoming rematch.
