When these two first fought, Carl Frampton was the underdog and the odds had reached roughly (-200) for Santa Cruz on fight week. Now, Frampton finds himself the slight favorite in their rematch.
The first fight took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and was a decision win for Frampton due to his superior boxing skills on the night, which outdid the volume punching of Santa Cruz. The loss was the first of Santa Cruz's career and he will now have to try and reclaim his featherweight title from Frampton.
Despite being the fighter moving up to featherweight from 122 lbs, Frampton displayed the heavier punches on the night, as he staggered Santa Cruz in the second round. The one major advantage Santa Cruz will have is his 7 inch reach advantage, which he failed to capitalize on in their first fight.
