CARL FRAMPTON will look to draw a line under what has been “a horrific year” when he faces unbeaten American Tyler McCreary at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on November 30.

Frampton was set to take on Emmanuel Dominguez in August but the bout was scuppered in freakish circumstances when a large ornament fell on the Northern Irishman’s left hand, leading to a fracture of his fifth metacarpal.

However, he will be back in action next month in a 10-round contest that will be held at a catch-weight of 128lbs, two pounds below the super-featherweight limit.
