Carl Frampton vs Leo Santa Cruz Rematch Booked for January 28 , 2017

Leo Santa Cruz asked for a rematch. Carl Frampton was more than willing to give him one. Now that bout has been agreed upon.

As announced on Thursday by Frampton's manager Barry McGuigan,Northern Ireland's first two weight division champion will fight Santa Cruz a second time on January 28, 2017 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. The co-main event will be the WBC Lightweight title bout between Montenegro's Dejan Zlaticanin and challenger Mikey Garcia.

It can be recalled that Frampton beat Santa Cruz by majority decision last July 30 at the Barclays Center to annex the latter's WBA Featherweight title in a close and rugged match. Santa Cruz immediately called for a rematch after the bout . But with the big arenas booked for November and December, the PBC decided to schedule the rematch for 2017. 

Let's take a look back at how their first bout went via the post-fight stats from the Throwdown Scoring Mobile app:

Now this is one rematch we all are looking forward to. Can't wait!
