Léo Santa Cruz outpoints Carl Frampton to win the WBA featherweight title

Revenge for Léo Santa Cruz, pure despair for Carl Frampton.

“It was a very tough fight,” said Frampton. “Some of the rounds were close. I feel that Leo probably deserved it.

“Can I just say one thing, I want to apologise to the travelling support. The best man won tonight, but I’m deeply sorry.

“I hope we can do it again. It’s one-all, we have to do it again.”

Asked about a rematch, Santa Cruz said: “Of course, I’m a man of my word. I would be happy to give him the third fight.

“Me and him, we are great fighters, we deserve it, and we can do it again.”
