Darren Corbett: Step up isn't a weight on NI hero's shoulders

By Darren Corbett

Published 29/07/2016

It's going to be a really hard fight, but what Carl has to do is get inside and beat this guy. If he keeps it on the outside then it's Santa Cruz's fight so he has to keep inside and get him working. I think he'll hit him too hard on the inside.

Frampton is going to make the step up in weight division, but it's only been one fight since Santa Cruz made the step up himself.

Carl is a chunky kid, so he'll have no problem making the weight and he'll be far stronger and fitter and will carry a bit more power.

For Santa Cruz to defend against another World champion is certainly a big risk.
