LEO SANTA CRUZ has reiterated the fact that he would contemplate retirement should Carl Frampton beat him for a second time this weekend.

Frampton shattered Santa Cruz’s unbeaten record in New York last year to relieve him of the WBA featherweight title, and Leo gets his chance at revenge at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Should the Mexican-American fail to even up the score, he would question his future in the sport, having already won world titles in three weight divisions.
