CARL FRAMPTON’S fight with Mexico’s Andres Gutierrez in Belfast was called off on Friday night with less than 24 hours’ notice.

Promoter Barry McGuigan said that Gutierrez had slipped in the shower and suffered concussion along with a number of facial wounds.

Speaking on BBC Newsline, along with a picture of Gutierrez’s cut chin, McGuigan said: “We’re all so disappointed, it was a freak accident. He slipped in the shower, smashed his face, the guy is concussed. He’s a deep gash on his chin, his nose, lost two of his teeth.”
