LEO SANTA CRUZ hopes to maintain his unbeaten record in Las Vegas when he fights Carl Frampton in a rematch at the MGM Grand this weekend.

Santa Cruz was handed his first pro defeat by Frampton in New York last year and will challenge Frampton for the WBA featherweight title he previously held.

The Mexican-American hopes to prevail this weekend and set up a trilogy fight with Frampton.
