WATCH: Carl Frampton v Leo Santa Cruz – Head-to-Head at pre-fight press conference

Carl Frampton and Leo Santa Cruz came face to face for the first time this fight week ahead of their WBA featherweight title rematch.

The pair were at the MGM Grand, the venue for Saturday’s clash, at the pre-fight press conference.

As expected it was cordial affair between the two fighters who share a lot of respect for each other.

Following the top table they engaged in a good-natured staredown, by our count their fifth, and would share a warm hand-shake afterwards.

Watch Carl Frampton and Leo Santa Cruz go head to head below:
