FORMER two-weight world champion Carl Frampton will fight Mexico’s Andres Gutierrez at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast on July 29.

The Northern Irishman confirmed the news at a press conference earlier today, with details of a UK broadcaster set to be revealed within the next fortnight.

Frampton has not fought since his thrilling January loss to Leo Santa Cruz in January, after which he insisted his next fight would be in Belfast. When Santa Cruz, who Carl defeated last year, ruled himself out of a trilogy fight ‘The Jackal’ turned his attention to Wales’ IBF champion Lee Selby.
