Froch Canít See Frampton Losing Tonight

At 04:00 hours Sunday morning (UK time), Carl Frampton and Leo Santa Cruz go head-to-head at the MGM Grand Arena, in Las Vegas.

Many boxing pundits are expecting this re-match, with Framptonís WBA world featherweight belt at stake, to be a close affair, just like the original fight in New York, last July.

But whilst Carl Froch reckons the fight will be a barnstormer, the Sky Sports boxing pundit and former world champion, canít see Frampton losing, remarking about the clash tonight,

'I expect a better Santa Cruz but I just think Frampton is just that little bit special.

'Every fight Frampton has, he gets better and better and learns a little bit more.

'He tweaks his style slightly, improves his defence, his offence and his foot movement.

'He's got Barry McGuigan around him and Barry's son Shane in the corner and the whole set-up is getting things right.

'Carl is able to adapt and cope so well.

'He manages to get his feet in and just get out of way of the shots enough so that he is still in range to land his counter punches.

'When you have got somebody who is giving you head movement and timing shots well and being deceptive with his style and being quick with a high work-rate, it's difficult to use your reach.

'If you fall short with the jab and hit clean air, it's tiring and you get counter-punched. Santa Cruz might try and get behind his jab and box a bit more but I don't think he's going to have enough to beat Carl Frampton.

'It's going to be another barnstormer and a really, really tough fight, but I think Carl Frampton is in no real danger of losing.'


Letís hope Froch is right in his assessment!
