WATCH: Leo Santa Cruz – The Reveal

As part of their promotion of the Carl Frampton v Leo Santa Cruz WBA featherweight rematch next Saturday, Showtime sent Sports Emmy Award-winning journalist Mark Kriegel to interview both boxers in depth.

Kriegel flew to Belfast to interview ‘The Jackal’ over a pint at the Duke of York pub. Click HERE to watch that interview.

For Santa Cruz, they went out for coffee in LA where ‘El Terremoto’ would detail his poverty-stricken upbringing, his father’s battle with cancer, the fight with Frampton, and buying a Lamborghini from Floyd Mayweather Jr.
