Carl Frampton has confirmed a rematch date against Leo Santa Cruz.

He announced the news on Twitter on Tuesday night.

The Jackal says he wants to wipe away doubts over his previous fight with Leo Santa Cruz by having a re-match victory.

The  WBA World featherweight champion says he's 'bringing an army' to Las Vegas on January 28.

Last July at the Barclays Centre, the Belfast native went 12 rounds with the mexican to become a two weight world champion. 

The Jackal was the first Northern Ireland boxer to win world titles at two different weights.

Neither Cyclone Promotions or the Santa Cruz' camp have confirmed the details of the latest fight at the MGM Grand Casino.
