Santa Cruz will be a more exciting fight than Quigg says Frampton

It was billed as the most eagerly anticipated domestic dust up since Froch Groves II, one that wouldn’t be matched at the weight for stature or excitement.

However, Frampton versus Quigg turned out to be a rather tactical and one sided affair with the build up providing a lot more entertainment than the fight itself.

‘The Jackal’ is not only adamant that his Summer showdown with WBA featherweight champion of the World Leo Santa Cruz is a much bigger fight, even a legacy bout,  he is confident it is going to be an all action affair.

 “Santa Cruz comes forward and throws loads of punches. He will come to fight and put on more of a show than Scott Quigg – who didn’t want to know for the first six rounds of our fight. Santa Cruz is tough,” said the World champion.

“He is a three weight world champion but I am confident of winning the fight.”

Frampton fought Quigg in his back yard on February 27 and as predicted had more support on the night than then WBA world title holder.

New York, where the Santa Cruz world title fight looks set to take place will prove a lot harder for ‘The Jackal Army’ to reach, but Frampton is expecting ‘the best fans in the World’ to make the Big Apple feel like home.

“I will have as much support there as Santa Cruz. My fans are the best in the world and the support I get is out of this world.

“And I hope to pick up loads of support from Irish Americans on the east coast.”
