World Championship Boxing

WBA Featherweight Championship in Brooklyn, New York

Carl Frampton fought clever in a brilliant performance to take the WBA world title from Leo Santa Cruz in Brooklyn, New York. Frampton let power do the work in the first half of the fight then moving into the later rounds he kept the fight at range as Santa Cruz tried to lure him into a brawl but he did not take the bait with some excellent defensive work and impressive counter punching. There never looked like there was going to be a knockdown and this was always headed for points, which Frampton deservedly was the one who came out on top by unanimous decision to stay undefeated become a two weight world champion after moving up from Super Bantamweight.
