FORMER two-weight world champion Carl Frampton fights for the first time since suffering his first professional loss at the hands of Leo Santa Cruz. On Saturday (July 29) he takes on tough Mexican Andres Gutierrez at the SSE Arena in his hometown of Belfast. Having outpointed Santa Cruz last year, Frampton was beaten by the former three-weight champion in January. When Santa Cruz refused to travel to Belfast and a clash with IBF featherweight champion Lee Selby failed to materialise, Frampton settled on Gutierrez.
12 three minute rounds.
