This week in PBC Jabs, host Jordan Hardy takes another look at the Frampton-Santa Cruz and Zlaticanin-Garcia world title fights, and chats with Sammy Vasquez Jr. before he faces Luis Collazo tonight on FS1.
Leo Santa Cruz’s aggressive, high-volume punching style helped him win his first three world championships. He won a fourth Saturday night by turning from brawler to boxer.
After their epic 12-round battle of last year, it would be unfair to expect Carl Frampton and Leo Santa Cruz to produce even greater action in their 126-pound world title rematch. But that’s very well what could unfold.
This week in PBC Jabs, host Jordan Hardy previews Saturday’s talent-laden Showtime card, including a Rapid Fire round with Northern Irish two-division champion Carl Frampton and a chat with Welsh 126-pound titleholder Lee Selby.
Carl Frampton didn’t exactly take America by storm in his U.S. debut, but a shaky showing in that fight actually helped launch him to the top of the boxing world.
When a Mexican-American from Los Angeles and a native of Belfast, Northern Ireland, square off in a boxing ring in Brooklyn, New York, there’s not supposed to be much of a home-field advantage for either fighter. But that certainly wasn’t the case in last summer’s scintillating matchup between Leo Santa Cruz and Carl Frampton.
