Saturday night will be a night to remember for Ireland's Carl Frampton, as he took home the WBA World featherweight title after winning a majority decision over Leo Santa Cruz in Brooklyn.

The pair locked up in the main event of Showtime Boxing's broadcast, and the two closed the evening off with a highly technical, back and forth battle that was tension filled throughout.

On the undercard, undefeated 140 pounder Mikey Garcia disposed of Elio Rojas in the fifth round of his comeback, and the win immediately signals that the super lightweight division has a new player.
