Carl Frampton is prepared to do whatever it takes to retain his WBA world featherweight title against Leo Santa Cruz in their rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on January 28.

The Ulsterman outpointed Santa Cruz in their hellacious meeting back in July to claim the WBA crown and the pair are set for an immediate rematch.

The decision was a close one but Frampton – a deserved winner first time round – plans to win more conclusively in Vegas.
