CARL FRAMPTON wants to secure a trilogy fight with Leo Santa Cruz as soon as possible after losing his unbeaten record and WBA featherweight title to the Mexican-American in Las Vegas last night.

Santa Cruz boxed well to earn a majority decision over Frampton, who had previously defeated him last year in New York.

With the score 1-1 between them and both fights being exciting and closely contested, Frampton wants an immediate opportunity at revenge.
