CARL FRAMPTON will not fight Andres Gutierrez after Cyclone Promotions were unable to secure a new date for the bout.

The pair were set to clash in Frampton’s hometown of Belfast on July 29, but it was called off when the Mexican slipped in the shower a day before the fight and suffered facial cuts and two broken teeth.

Cyclone have since released a statement outlining that “a proposed date in November was unsuitable to all parties” and that they are working to secure a new opponent for former two-weight world champion Frampton.
