This Saturday, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Carl Frampton will be looking to reclaim his status as a world champion.

Frampton vacated his IBF / WBA super-bantamweight titles in order to move up to tale on the talented WBA super-featherweight champion Leo Santa Cruz.

The fighter from Belfast will be putting his record of 22-0 with 14 wins coming by way of knockout, against a fighter that has a record of 32-0 with 18 wins coming by way of knockout.

The fight will be Frampton?s second in the US, last time out he fought the tough Mexican Alejandro Gonzalez and had t limb off of the canvas to claim a points win.

Talking about facing Leo Santa Cruz, Frampton had this to say to the media,

?He?s three inches taller, but I don?t mind that.

?It?s very rarely that I box someone who is smaller than me and I will be heavier than him on the night. He started as a bantamweight and when I saw him in the flesh in El Paso, he didn?t look like a really strong guy, he looks skinny.?

That may be the case Carl but the guy is a tough cookie with an unbeaten record.

We?ll continue to focus on this fight as the week progresses as it has all the makings of being a cracker.
