Carl Frampton felt a dramatic difference in his body during his first featherweight fight in more than five years.Frampton was less energetic and weaker when he had to struggle to make the 122-pound limit, but he felt fresh and strong during his 12-round, majority-decision victory over Leo Santa Cruz five months ago. The unbeaten WBA world featherweight champion, who’s training for their January 28 rematch, doesn’t think he would’ve been able to fend off the relentless Santa Cruz if the weight limit for their July 30 fight was 122 pounds, rather than the featherweight maximum of 126. “I felt great,” Frampton told BoxingScene.com. “I don’t think I could’ve fought at that pace at 122 pounds. Making that weight was taking away from me and how I was performing. But at 126, again it was my first fight, and now I know I can do it. I know that I can empty the tank and I can fight at a flattering pace. And I feel like I can take a better shot at 126 as well. And this is my second time at the weight, and I believe that I’m only gonna get better.” News Credit: Boxing Scene theframpton premierboxing #CarlFrampton #BarryMcGuigan #CyclonePromotions #LeoSantaCruz #AlHaymon #PremierBoxing #ShowtimeBoxing #FramptonSantaCruz2

WBA featherweight champion Carl Frampton (23-0, 14 KOs) is hoping to eventually move up in weight to pursue a third divisional title. Frampton moved up to featherweight last year and captured the WBA belt with a close, hard-fought twelve round decision over Leo Santa Cruz at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.Currently in Las Vegas, Frampton is training with Shane McGuigan for his rematch with Santa Cruz - which is scheduled to take place at the MGM Grand on January 28.At the moment the featherweight division is loaded with talent. Should he get past Santa Cruz, the next fight could potentially be against IBF champion Lee Selby, who is fighting on the undercard.But the career goal for Frampton is one more divisional belt. “I want to be a three-weight world champion,” he told Sky Sports. “That is the goal. It wasn’t necessarily at the start of my career, but when you reach targets you set new goals and Steve Collins is the only other Irishman to hold world titles in different divisions, so I want to stand alone.” Frampton is very focused and motivated to beat Santa Cruz for a second time, and feels he might be capable of getting a knockout win in the second going. To get the job done, Frampton is training like never before and came to Las Vegas very early to get adjusted. “I’ve been working hard and sparring well and although I am 30, I feel I am getting better and if I take what I’ve been doing into the gym so far in with me, I am going to win the fight convincingly,” Frampton said. “We’ll pretty much be in Las Vegas for a month. When I was over last time, when I fought him in New York, we went over a month early and we don’t fix what’s not broken. We are going to do it again; get used to the time difference, just get used to the surroundings and just soak it all up, enjoy myself when I’m out there for the big fight.” News Credit: Boxing Scene #CarlFrampton #BarryMcGuigan #CyclonePromotions #LeoSantaCruz #AlHaymon #PremierBoxing #ShowtimeBoxing #FramptonSantaCruz2

Carl Frampton has called on Leo Santa Cruz to complete the trilogy with a final showdown in Belfast after losing his WBA featherweight title in Las Vegas. Frampton was beaten for the first time in his career on a majority points decision at the MGM Grand as Santa Cruz regained the belt he lost to the Northern Irishman in July. Santa Cruz is open to the idea of a decider and Frampton wants the fight in his backyard.“I hope so, I hope he is a man of his word and we can do it in Belfast,” he said on Sky Sports 1. “I have come to the States twice. We could do it four, five, six times. I hope we do it again.“I am deeply disappointed but let’s have a trilogy and have our names linked together forever and hopefully I can win 2-1.” One judge scored the contest at 114-114, but the other two gave it 115-113 in Santa Cruz’s favour and the Mexican took a deserved victory. It was a smart performance by Santa Cruz, who improved immeasurably from the first bout in New York last summer, and his tactics shocked Frampton. “I think it was the right decision, I thought it was close,” the Northern Irishman added. “He frustrated me at times, I didn’t expect that game plan, the boxer got out-boxed by the brawler. I thought it was the right decision, I hope we can do it again, it was a close fight. “I have got no excuses, I feel I want to say sorry, I feel like I have let everyone down. The best man won on the night. I am gutted. It was my fault.”Santa Cruz admits he had to fight against his instinct as well as Frampton. “I worked hard and did what I had t,” he said. “I fought a great fighter and let’s make a third fight. He is a great fighter and a great counter-puncher. It was tough to change my style, in my head I wanted to go for it, but I was told to box him and that’s what I did. “I am a man of my word. We are both great fighters, we deserve it and let’s go again.” News Credit:Boxing Scene #CarlFrampton #BarryMcGuigan #CyclonePromotions #LeoSantaCruz #AlHaymon #PremierBoxing #ShowtimeBoxing #SantaCruzFrampton3

Carl Frampton expects his rematch with Leo Santa Cruz to be easier than their last sensational scrap. The Belfast boxer’s name is up in lights down the Las Vegas strip where he meets the Mexican on Saturday. Frampton earned a thrilling majority points decision the last time the pair met in July.But Santa Cruz’s father and trainer Jose was absent from much of his son’s training camp before that fight as he fought bone cancer. Leo reckons that absence meant he lacked a gameplan first time around against Frampton.But his dad is better now and will be in his son’s corner for the rematch where a large Mexican support is expected at the MGM Grand. That does not worry WBA world featherweight champ Frampton, 29. He said: “I’m expecting a tough fight but I don’t know if I’m expecting a better one." “Last time there were a lot of excuses thrown about afterwards but I think that is Leo Santa Cruz, that’s how he fights." “I believe it will be a tough fight but the way I’m training at the minute, if I bring it into the ring then it should be an easier fight." “I actually think I’ll beat him and I think it will be more comfortable this time.”But Santa Cruz is looking at things rather differently.He said: “The difference now is I’m more motivated, with no worries or obstacles."“For the first fight I was thinking about my dad and was not very focused, I was focused on him." “But in this fight Frampton is going to face the real Leo Santa Cruz.”Frampton had a brilliant 2016, beating Scott Quigg in a world super-bantamweight title unification fight before stepping up a division to beat Santa Cruz in the States. And he insists there is no chance of his Vegas dream turning into a nightmare, like it did for his manager Barry McGuigan in 1986. McGuigan lost on points to Steve Cruz but Frampton said: “I know what happened with Barry’s fight, it was about 105 degrees!"

The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, long a bridesmaid to many of the biggest fights in the sport, is planning a busy 2017 with six cards on the docket and two or three at a sister site in Long Island. And if Showtime and PBC officials have their way, heavyweight titleholders Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua will be showcasing their skills near the Atlantic Avenue stop in Brooklyn. “They’re going to be major fights,” Lou DiBella, the promoter of record for all the dates, told RingTV.com on Tuesday without delving into the specifics of the match-ups. “They’re going to be along the lines with what we did there in July with Frampton (vs. Santa Cruz) and January (with DeGale vs. Jack). You pretty much know that March 4 is the Thurman-Garcia fight. They’re going to be major fights and terrific match-ups." Barclays will host a super middleweight unification bout between James DeGale and Badou Jack on Jan. 14 for the RING/IBF/WBC titles. The next Barclays fight on March 4 is expected to be between Danny Garcia and Keith Thurman for their WBA/WBC welterweight titles. Barclays is also on hold for April 22, May 20, June 24 and July 15, according to the New York State Athletic Commission calendar. Furthermore, the recently renovated Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, Long Island is slated to open on April 29 with another show.Wilder, who returns on Feb. 25 in Alabama to defend his WBC title, could conceivably return in late May at Barclays Center, where he has fought before, according to a timetable his team has put out for how often he wants to fight. And Showtime officials would like nothing more than to bring IBF champion Joshua to New York after his April 29 unification bout with Wladimir Klitschko. Of course, this is all speculation and hopeful thinking.

Lee Selby realizes he has been placed on the Carl Frampton-Leo Santa Cruz undercard for a distinct reason. If the Welsh featherweight wins his fight against Argentina’s Jonathan Barros on Saturday night in Las Vegas, he’ll become an obvious opponent for the Frampton-Santa Cruz winner. Northern Ireland’s Frampton told BoxingScene.com last month that if he defeats Santa Cruz again, he’d like to face Selby in a 126-pound title unification fight at Belfast’s Windsor Park, an outdoor soccer stadium in Frampton’s hometown.“It’s a dream for every boxer to fight in Vegas, so it’s great to have this opportunity,” Selby told Skysports.com for a story posted Monday. “But it is important that I shine under the lights. Barros is a former WBA champion, a big puncher with an unorthodox style. I can’t afford to take my eye off the ball. He’s very dangerous and will be coming in as a hungry underdog. It’s his chance to regain a world title, but I’m not going to let that happen. “The main thing, of course, is to win and after that, look at the different outcomes. If I look good, then I want the winner of Frampton and Santa Cruz. Ideally, I will get that fight and I think that’s why I’m on the show. It’s natural for people to compare the winners of our fights." Selby hopes he beats Barros and can take a seat inside MGM Grand Garden Arena later Saturday night to watch another entertaining battle between Frampton (23-0, 14 KOs), the WBA world featherweight champion, and Santa Cruz (32-1-1, 18 KOs).“The first fight was a brilliant one,” Selby said. “I was at ringside for it and it was pretty even throughout. At the final bell, I couldn’t split them and I think the next fight will be the same, although Santa Cruz might have a slight advantage with it now being [in Las Vegas].” Selby will be rooting for Frampton to defeat Santa Cruz again. “Of course, I want Frampton to win as a fellow British fighter, and hopefully we can then get it on down the line,” Selby said. “It’s a super fight and the kind I want to be involved in.” News Credit:Boxing Scene #LeeSelby #LeoSantaCruz #AlHaymon #PremierBoxing #CarlFrampton #BarryMcGuigan #ShowtimeBoxing #SelbyBarros #FramptonSantaCruz2

The Nevada State Athletic Commission is putting its best foot forward in its assignment of referee and judges for the state’s first big main event of 2017. Veteran referee Kenny Bayless has been given the call to serve as third man for the highly anticipated rematch between Carl Frampton and Leo Santa Cruz. The featherweight title fight takes place January 28 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, with Showtime to televise the event live. The three judges assigned to the bout will be longtime Nevada-based officials Dave Moretti and Burt A. Clements, and Connecticut’s Glenn Feldman.None of the aforementioned officials have ever worked a pro bout involving Frampton (23-0, 14KOs), the 2016 BoxingScene.com Fighter of the Year who fights in Nevada for the first time in his career. Santa Cruz (32-1-1. 18KOs) has twice before fought in the presence of Bayless as a referee, first in March ’14 when he scored a 12-round decision over Cristian Mijares and in Jan. ’15 during his 8th round knockout of Jesus Ruiz in the final defense of his super bantamweight title. Both bouts took place at the MGM Grand. Clements and Moretti were both at ringside as judges for the Ruiz bout, with their scores of 69-64 in favor of Santa Cruz at the time of the stoppage right in line with how most viewers saw the title fight. Clements also served as a ringside official for Santa Cruz’ 2nd round knockout of Manuel Roman, which took place in Sept. ’14. Feldman has never been assigned a bout involving either boxer.The matchup is a sequel to one of the very best fights of 2016, in which Frampton claimed a hard-fought majority decision victory last July at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The win solidified Frampton’s Fighter of the Year campaign, as he was recognized by many outlets around the world in addition to this website. On the somber side, it served as the first pro loss for Santa Cruz, now a dethroned former three-time champion.
