Carl Frampton MBE is still looking to face WBA featherweight World champion Leo Santa Cruz in his next outing.

And IBF and WBA super-bantamweight World champion Frampton says he wants the Mexican.

“That’s the fight we want, Leo Santa Cruz.

“It’s up a weight division, so we’ll have to move up to featherweight but it’s about securing a legacy now. I want to be a two-weight world champion.

“I think me against Santa Cruz is a very crowd-pleasing fight,

“ I would like it in Belfast, if it’s going to be the next fight it could be in the summer, but we may have to travel.

“But that’s fine too, I will fight him anywhere.”

And ‘The Jackal’ says Santa Cruz is a fight the fans would love.

“He is a come forward fighter and he throws loads of punches. I think his style would suit me and it would be na explosive fight for the fans,” he added.
