Carl Framtpon has become a two-weight world champion with a majority decision victory over Leo Santa Cruz in their featherweight title bout in New York.

Frampton, from Northern Ireland and a former super-bamtamweight, fought for the first time at 122lbs.

He gave an assured and composed performance to stun his unbeaten Mexican opponent, scoring a 23rd professional win.

Judge Guido Cavalleri scored the contest 114-114, but two others ruled in favour of the young boxer, giving him the belt his manager won in 1985.
