Frank Warren: I Spoke To Haymon About Santa Cruz-Frampton 3

By Frank Warren, courtesy of The Daily Star

BELFAST is a great fight venue and the fans in the city get another chance to cheer on their own tonight.

Carl Frampton makes his long-awaited return to the ring when he takes on Mexican Horacio Garcia at the SSE Arena.

When he fights, Belfast knows and we were delighted to land his signature when he became available earlier this year.

The former two-weight world champion is still one of the biggest names in the sport and there are some huge fights out there for him.

There are the domestic clashes with IBF champion Lee Selby or Leeds favourite Josh Warrington.

But the big one he also wants is that third fight with WBA champion Leo Santa Cruz.

Santa Cruz is set to face Abner Mares next but I have already held talks with his advisor Al Haymon about a clash that could take place in the summer.

It is not really fair to say on the undercard about Jamie Conlan’s challenge for the IBF super-flyweight title against champion Jerwin Ancajas, because it is a massive fight.

Conlan has been in some cracking clashes and he deserves this chance so we are hoping he can get his dream world title.

There are, of course, more home favourites on the card like Paddy Barnes but there is a good international scrap that will interest another Belfast native.
Barry Mcguigan and Carl Frampton reflect upon their careers.

WBO bantamweight champion Zolani Tete defends against Siboniso Gonya and will be looking to show the home crowd what he is about as he eyes up a unification clash with WBA and IBF title holder Ryan Burnett.

We are ready to make that fight next and have made an offer to Burnett in the past but now we will find out if he really fancies it.

Belfast is a city that gets behind their own but they also know boxing and appreciate the sport so it is great to bring such a good card here.

Hopefully it lives up to expectations with some saying it is the best bill they’ve seen in Ireland.

[QUOTE=Boxing Logic;18220456]Right now, the context between these fighters and the rest of the division is so lacking, that this trilogy fight brings little intrigue. Let Frampton fight Mares (a better matchup), let Santa Cruz fight Russell, Jo Jo, or Valdez,…
