Leo Santa Cruz “The Reveal” with Mark Kriegel – Former WBA world featherweight champion Leo Santa Cruz will be the challenger this coming January 28th as he faces Carl Frampton of Ireland for the second time with the belt on the line.
In their first encounter, last July 30th at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, Santa Cruz lost his belt to Frampton by a close majority decision. Santa Cruz had worked a rematch clause into the first fight’s contract and he let almost no time pass before he invoked his right to a return encounter. Santa Cruz has held world championships in three different weight classes in his career, and in Frampton there is the feeling that he may have found a rival worthy of a trilogy. In order for that to reasonably happen, Santa Cruz will have to win this second meeting with “The Jackal.”
