Leo Santa Cruz To Target Carl Frampton's Weak Chin

Leo Santa Cruz plans to target Carl Frampton's weak chin when the pair meet in New York next month. Brooklyn's Barclays Center will host the July 30 contest for Santa Cruz's WBA Super World featherweight belt as Frampton steps up to 126lbs after vacating his super-bantamweight titles.

The Belfast man's only previous assignment in the United States almost ended in embarrassment as he was dropped twice by unfancied Alejandro Gonzalez Jr before winning a unanimous decision a year ago and Santa Cruz plans to test his unbeaten challenger's punch resistance come fight night.

Leo said “Frampton is a good fighter. He has power and skills and he moves when he has to, but he has a weak chin. When he gets caught with a good punch, he goes down. He doesn't like pressure and I have that. I'm looking forward to putting on an exciting show at Barclays Center and I hope I leave with lots of new fans

On the other hand Frampton said “I am in terrific shape, I feel fantastic in the gym and I am ready for the biggest fight of my career. On July 30, I will become a two-weight world champion. I respect Leo Santa Cruz, he is a great fighter and person, but I am preparing meticulously to overcome any challenge he brings. It is my first time boxing in New York, where some of the greatest fights have taken place. I know there will be a large number of fans travelling from the UK and Ireland but there is also a huge Irish-American audience and I am eager to show them all what I can do
