Carl Frampton gunning for immediate Leo Santa Cruz trilogy fight in Belfast

The judges scored the fight 114-114, 115-113, and 115-113. He needed a big finish but couldn't find it, Mexico chants the soundtrack to the closing rounds as Santa Cruz evaded a tide-turning blow.

With the fight hanging in the balance the two fought at a furious pace in the final third of the fight including a slugfest of a final round, but the outcome was never in doubt as the scorecards were lead. "I know how to use my distance and everything". The Mexican fighter began to dig to the body with the left hook as Frampton traded with him.

"After that, I would be happy to go to LA". The increase from 122 pounds to 126 pounds to take Santa Cruz's belt only helped him, Frampton said.

Heading into the fight, Santa Cruz (33-1-1) promised to fight a smarter fight than he did in the first engagement.

According to Trump's ideals, Santa Cruz' family, including his mother and father, would be deported. "It wasn't meant to be, and sometimes I felt the brawler was outboxing the boxer and he told me what he was going to do". I missed him screaming at me, pushing me, telling me what to do. "That's what I did". I've come to the States twice now and Leo said he'd come to Belfast for the third one, I hope he's a man of his word. And if he does try to start off and box, it just becomes more of an easier fight for me. He was very clever. He deserves it. I feel like I could have fought better.

'Leo is a man of his word and we'll do it again.

"I am a little disappointed because I wanted to give the crowd a spectacular knockout", he said. "Put them in the ring 10 times and you will get that kind of fight 10 times".

Anthony says has proved Knicks loyalty
Additionally, the Clippers don't seem to have the interesting draft picks to make a trade with NY , for Anthony, feasible. That brings down his trade value to a level that wouldn't be catastrophic for the Clippers if they lost him.

Frampton has said that his next fight will definitely be in Belfast this summer and says that it could be against Lee Selby, the IBF champion whose fight on the Premier Boxing Champions card was canceled after his opponent, Yoni Barros of Argentina, was denied a license to fight in Nevada because of issues with his bloodwork.

"There were a lot of experts who said I was going to lose". "The layoff allowed me to reignite that fire, that passion".

Of course, Frampton's obvious skill set and intermittent successes on Saturday are enough to make a case he, too, could readjust for a third fight, and it'd be plenty fascinating to see which version of Santa Cruz-or perhaps an entirely new third persona-would present itself if the two square off again. Garcia was in and out of range at just the right moments, making his man reach and miss, all while firing back a thudding jab and meaty right hands. "Let's get it right and settle the score in No 3". Referee Tony Weeks didn't bother to count. "I think he deserved it". Frampton is a slight favourite to repeat his victory with a second decision win, but a Santa Cruz win can not in any way be ruled out. He kept coming in.

The opening saw frenetic action from both. I think it was fair in the first fight.

A massive Garcia punch literally knocked out Zlaticanin, who was motionless on his back for several seconds as Riverside's Garcia (36-0, 30 knockouts) claimed his third division title.

"I'm available for any of the other champions", he said. That way we would get the rubber-match and this special rivalry would go down as one of the finest trilogies ever. "Then maybe we can go to 140 and do the same thing".
