    Purses: Frampton $1M, Santa Cruz $900K + TV rights. Watched it with Olivier on chat. we disagreed on a few close rounds, I had it 115-114 Frampton, but I agree with the decision. What a good fight, let’s see if Santa Cruz is game enough to go to Belfast as Frampton said in the post-fight interview :)

    • Olivier Veillette

      Yeah! Even though I was scoring under the influence of, I had it 115-113 Santa Cruz. Thought the fight was a little less intense than the first one, thanks to Santa Cruz’ adjustments, but it was a very good technical fight anyway. Santa Cruz was first on most occasions, kept Frampton on the end of his long reachy arms and when the latter would try to sneak in, Santa Cruz would then keep him very close to him and engage in very effective infighting with great body blows and fast combinations. Doing so, Santa Cruz prevented Frampton from attacking from mid-range at which he might have been more effective. Many rounds were close but looking at the fight overall, Santa Cruz deserved to win, Frampton acknowledged and bowed his head to the new champion like a true gentleman.

        You were under the influence of tea, don’t deny it! XD Pretty good assessment of the fight, you got a gift for that Oli.

        Bloody Disqus ate my post!

        I’ll keep it short and sweet: enjoyed your and Matt’s take on the fight. I had LSC winning by 3…brains and tactics rule!

        2017 is off to a good start. :-)

        • Mattsnow

          He said after the fight he was sorry he couldn’t brawl, that was’t the plan…. Still an interesting fight, good plan for him I guess.

  • No10Count

    Before the fight I knew the outcome.
    How? Because they were already working on the trilogy. Have watched boxing long enough to have seen this before. Just what was the outcome that I knew. That it would be the same fight but Cruz would win this one via SD so they can fight again.

    I had the fight 7-4-1 Frampton.
    (The 10 point system is stupid)
    3rd round I had as a tie. 2,8th,10th, and 11th for Cruz.
