Carl Frampton v Andres Gutierrez OFF


In some devastating news for Irish boxing, tomorrow’s fight between Carl Frampton and Andres Gutierrez has been cancelled.

Mexican Gutierrez has been involved in an accident and will be unable to fight tomorrow night.

‘Jaguarcito’ is believed to have slipped in the shower and badly cut his chin.

It is the second, and fight fatal, piece of drama to come today following Frampton’s inability to make featherweight for the clash and seeing the bout demoted from being a WBC world title eliminator.

The fight was due to be Frampton’s return to the ring following his WBA featherweight title rematch loss to Leo Santa Cruz.

The cancellation also sees a loss of fight dates for Paddy Gallagher, Conrad Cummings, Padraig McCrory, Lewis Crocker, and Steven Ward, as well as Englishwoman Chantelle Cameron and Libyan Malik Zinad.

A statement from Cyclone Promotions read:

Cyclone Promotions and The SSE Arena regret to announce that the “Return of The Jackal” event scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday 29th July, has been cancelled due to an accident to Andres Gutierrez.

It is hoped that the event will be re-scheduled but ticket holders are advised to retain their tickets and contact point of purchase for further information.

Please listen out for announcements on local radio stations or check www.ssearenabelfast.com for updates.

We very much regret the inconvenience caused.
