Leo Santa Cruz Eyes Frampton-Martinez II Winner

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com caught up with WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz (27-0-1) in Las Vegas over the weekend. The two division champion is scheduled to return to the ring in September an will likely be on the 13th on the Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana 2 pay-per-view undercard.

Santa Cruz said that he didn't have an opponent lined up yet but that he hopes to face the best opponent available.

"I am just waiting on my next opponent. Hopefully we get whoever wins between Frampton and Martinez, or Quigg, Rigondeaux. Whoever the fans want, I am ready,"
said Santa Cruz.

The Southern California resident said that the rematch between Carl Frampton and Kiko Martinez is too close to call but that he expects another good fight.

"It is a good fight. The first fight was a close fight but Frampton got it. I think this will be another good fight," Santa Cruz stated.

[QUOTE=Aztekkas;14766138]Frampton looked vicious in that first round but began fading the more the fight wore on. This is due to Kiko's polished pressure. He knows how to hunt a man down and trap him against the ropes to explode combinations…
