Showtime bring a very loaded fight card on Saturday night, 30th July 2016 from Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York. Carl Frampton vs Leo Santa Cruz featherweight title fight headlines the card while Mike Garcia takes on Elio Rojas on the co-featured event. New York favourite Paulie Malignaggi will also be on the card against Sergey Rabchenko while Amanda Serrano defend her WBO women featherweight title on the same night.
Main-Event between Leo Santa Cruz and Carl Frampton is a massive bout considering it is a unification bout where Frampton’s IBF and Santa Cruz’s WBA featherweight titles will be on the line. Santa Cruz is odds on favourite going into the night but you can never rule out Frampton who registered a massive win over domestic rival Scott Quigg earlier in the year.
Now looking at both fighters, Santa Cruz is a slick fighter who lacks punching power but can put opponent underpressure with his massive volume of punches all night long. This fight is very likely to go all the way till 12 round and if does go that way I can only see one winners and thats Santa Cruz. Frampton’s only chance is catching him with pig punches and hope for a knockout.
Mikey Garcia vs Elio Rojas
Another quality fight on the night involves Mike Garcia who is returning to the ring after a long layoff will take on Elio Rojas. It is his chance after finally seeing the back of a massive promotional conflict forcing him three years out of the ring.
