Tips Frampton to win by decision or technical decision    Best Bet @ 6 / 4  

The last contest was a thriller, the two fought vigorously for 12-rounds and a less experienced Frampton got the win. This time round will be one which Frampton (8/11 with Paddy Power) will find easier, despite Santa Cruz wanting to right the wrongs of the previous match-up, as the skill and boxing ability of Frampton will be too much for Cruz to handle.

The way in which Cruz tries to defend when he is on the back-foot is something which will help Frampton gain control. Cruz is a fighter who prefers to fight leather with leather but with Frampton’s range of punches and technicality, Cruz will find it difficult.

If Santa Cruz is to gain revenge and win the title, he must use his height and range to frustrate Frampton and not allow the Irishman to get close and pick his shots.

Frampton will be backed my over 4,000 travelling fans, and with the atmosphere behind him in addition to him already having the edge over Cruz previously, he should win this one on a unanimous points decision.

Santa Cruz needs to learn from the way in which Frampton bossed the fight against Scott Quigg last year, so Cruz has to stamp down his authority early on and not let Frampton win the early rounds as he did during the Quigg bout.

Having said that, this one will not be as close as last time though and Frampton will be favourite to leave the USA with the belt remaining around his waist. I can’t see a knockout in this one, a unanimous points victory in favour of Frampton is on the cards (6/4 with Ladbrokes).
