WBA featherweight World champion Leo Santa Cruz has respect for Carl Frampton’s power before they meet in New York on July 30.

And the Mexican says he will have to be careful against ‘The Jackal’ when they meet in the Barclays Center.

“We will prepare in the gym not to get hit with those big punches.

“We know he has that power, we have seen it and we will have to be slick and smart.

“We are going to have to move and not stay there in front of him. We are going to have to move and stay on the outside.

“If we feel his power we are going to have to move like the way we did against Kiko Martinez.

“We will just have to be smart and as the fight goes on we will decide what to do.”
