Carl Frampton, left, and Leo Santa Cruz will do battle again Saturday after Frampton won Santa Cruz's featherweight title via a majority decision July 30.

"We are also big Carl Frampton fans".

That comes Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas when Frampton, now 23-0 and ruling a second weight class after his own 17-month run at 122 pounds, makes his third USA appearance in four fights after beginning his career on familiar turf in Northern Ireland, England and Wales. Obviously, I'm very, very grateful for that.

'Fighting Leo Santa Cruz in the United States, a three-weight world champion who a lot of people thought was going to beat me and beat me comfortably, that was a big deal, ' Frampton said. "They want to see me involved and fight with great fighters".

Carl Frampton replied to everything that Santa Cruz came on with. That could be more hard this time because Santa Cruz's motivation is through the roof.

It was the first pro loss for Santa Cruz, a Mexican-born fighter who has lived almost all his life in Southern California, and came after a camp where his father and trainer, Jose Santa Cruz, was not always available because he was undergoing treatments for myeloma.

I wrote about these phenomena in my new book, " The Deplorables' Guide to Making America Great Again ". No one has been placed on administrative leave as of Thursday morning, Harris said.

"Last year was huge, I'm glad I shared the ring with a great fighter like Leo Santa Cruz and now I'm going to start off 2017 in the same way".

I can use my distance and box if I wanted to, but I want to brawl. It could be said that Santa Cruz under estimated just how tough and skilful his conqueror is, he won't this time. I know the way Leo fights, he throws a lot of punches and he is courageous, but his style suits me. David Benavidez (16-0, 15 KO) will meet Sherali Mamajonov (14-1, 7 KO) in an eight-round super middleweight bout, and Josh Taylor (7-0, 7 KO) will face Alfonso Olvera (8-2-1, 3 KO) in an eight-round junior welterweight fight. The increase from 122 pounds to 126 pounds to take Santa Cruz's belt only helped him, Frampton said. I'm going to do a little bit of everything.

Frampton believes Santa Cruz's Mexican ways won't allow for that.

"We rolled everything into one and to be now going to watch the world champion to finish off our honeymoon we are thrilled", he said. "Having my dad here and in the gym with me is really relaxing". As he was recently trying to explain how he could change things up in the ring, he changed directions.

"This training camp has been very easy", Leo Santa Cruz said. "The fans love for a fighter to go toe-to-toe in a fight".
