4. Leo Santa Cruz
Leo Santa Cruz has already voiced his intentions of fighting the winner of Frampton-Quigg. The unbeaten featherweight champion, who takes on Kiko Martinez in California on the same night as the unification bout said: “It’s a very interesting fight between Frampton and Quigg. They’ve both been possible opponents for me and I hope that I do well that night and face the winner of that fight. I don’t care who it is, I want to fight them.”
It will be interesting to see how Santa Cruz handles Martinez first. The Spaniard has squared-off against both Carl (twice) and Scott (once) – being stopped on two of those occasions. If the Mexican can win in similar fashion, it opens up the possibility of a future meeting with Frampton or Quigg. Whether at super-bantamweight or featherweight, would be a decision for the fighters. But makes for a mouth-watering possibility nonetheless.
