Boxing superstar Carl Frampton is relishing a second thriller with Leo Santa Cruz on January 28.

According to sources in America, Frampton is on course to make his debut at arguably the most prestigious venue in world boxing, the MGM Grand Las Vegas, when he faces Santa Cruz in their highly anticipated re-match though neither Cyclone Promotions or the Mexican’s camp confirmed the details of the duel.

Frampton ripped the World title belt away from Santa Cruz in July at the Barclays Centre in New York after an epic  fight of the year contender.

Now the Jackal, the first Northern Ireland man to win world titles at two different weights, is relishing the opportunity of tangling once more with the Mexican.

“Santa Cruz says he thought he won our first fight so it’ll be good to go and make it two-nil,” said Frampton.

“It’s the fight that all the fans wanted and I’m sure it’s going to be another tough one but I’m confident of winning again.”
