Former super-bantamweight champion Carl Frampton believes his power will move up with him when the Irishman challenges WBA featherweight title holder Leo Santa Cruz on July 30.
‘The Jackal’ comes into the fight fresh from a career-defining decision victory over UK rival Scott Quigg and is adamant he’ll be a more complete fighter as he ascends the weight classes.
Frampton may well be at longer odds than those who play traditional slot machine games at Royal Vegas online casino to defeat the Mexican-American, but is sure he can still be the force he was at 122 pounds.

“Moving up to 126 pounds was definitely the right decision for me. I’m a big puncher but I lost power coming down to 122 pounds. I’m going to be punching harder and be at my very best,” said Frampton.
“This fight is huge for me because I really want to create a legacy. I know how people talk, and I think people will be talking about this for a very long time. I want people to remember me as a great fighter, that’s all.
“I want to be in exciting fights. From here on in my career, I want to be great. Who better to face than Leo Santa Cruz? This is a chance to put my name down in history and become a two-weight world champion from Ireland.”
Both boxers are currently undefeated with 54 wins between them, with 32 of those wins coming via knockout.
On the undercard, former two-weight world champion Paulie Malignaggi squares off for the Brooklyn title against rival Gabriel Bracero.
