After losing his WBA featherweight title to Leo Santa Cruz, the fighter who he?d won it off of back in July, Carl Frampton gave an honest opinion of the fight.

Talking to the media, the Irish boxer, who is hoping for a third fight with the Mexican, remarked;

‘Leo probably deserved it. It was my fault and I want to apologise to the travelling fans.

‘I hope we can do it again – we need to do it again.

‘My feet were a bit slow. I needed to let my hands go a bit more when I got close.

‘We had a fantastic training camp, I felt completely prepared. I feel like I’ve let the people down.?

As for Santa Cruz, the Mexican had this to say about Frampton and the possibility of a third fight between the two,

‘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. Let’s go again.’

There is talk of the rubber match being in Belfast, now wouldn?t that be some occasion!
