It remains unclear whether or not there is a rematch clause Leo Santa Cruz can evoke after being dethroned by Carl Frampton on Saturday night.

However, Team Frampton seem open to a return regardless.

Lee Selby and Gary Russell Jr would give ‘The Jackal’ the chance to become a two weight unified champion and remain options, but the Belfast fighter said he was open to a Santa Cruz rematch.

The man who came up with the game plan for the New York-hosted historic win, Shane McGuigan didn’t seem too averse to the idea of a rematch when quizzed after the fight.

In fact he suggested ‘we’d win easier next time’.
