Frampton out to impress USA audience

Carl Frampton takes on Leo Santa Cruz for the WBA featherweight crown determined to show fight fans in the United States just how good he is.

The unbeaten 29-year-old from Belfast said: "The last time I was in the States, I did not show my true potential.

"I don't think people have seen a really good performance from me in quite a while."

The last time Frampton fought in the United States, in July 2015, he recovered from being knocked down twice in the opening round to retain his IBF super-bantamweight title with a unanimous points decision over Alejandro Gonzalez Jr in El Paso, Texas.
