Frampton predicts classic with Santa Cruz

Carl Frampton believes his 30 July fight in New York against WBA world featherweight fight champion Leo Santa Cruz will be a classic contest.

The 29-year-old Belfast boxer predicted: "It is going to be one of those people talk about for a long time."

Former super-bantamweight world champion Frampton has switched to featherweight and wants to become the first fighter from Northern Ireland to win global titles in two different weights.
