WATCH: Behind-the-scenes at Carl Frampton’s Las Vegas base

Carl Frampton [23(14)-0] is in the final stages of training for his WBA featherweight title rematch with Leo Santa Cruz next Saturday night.

‘The Jackal’ rematches Santa Cruz at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and has been in Las Vegas preparing since the start of January.

Frampton, along with trainer Shane McGuigan, manager Barry McGuigan, and stablemates Josh Taylor and Josh Pritchard are currently renting former world champion Robert Guerrero’s house in the Las Vegas suburb of Blue Diamond.

As part of his role as a Live Well Ambassador for Centra, Shane McGuigan gave a behind-the-scenes tour of the house, as well as the Shawn Porter’s gym, where Frampton is currently in training.
