Carl Frampton and Leo Santa Cruz gave boxing one of the best fights of 2016, and now they’re back to do it again.
Frampton (23-0-0 with 14 knockouts) defeated Santa Cruz (32-1-1 with 18 knockouts) via majority decision to win the latter’s WBA Super World Featherweight title back in July, and now he enters this much-anticipated rematch as the slight favorite.
Also on the card, which will be broadcast on Showtime in the United States and Sky Sports 1 in the UK, is a compelling battle of undefeated fighters between Dejan Zlaticanin (22-0-0 with 15 knockouts) and Mikey Garcia (35-0-0) for the Dynamite’s WBC World Lightweight title.
Here’s a complete look at all the fights scheduled for Saturday, January 28, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas:
