Carl Frampton’s postponed fight with Andrés Gutiérrez has now been cancelled.
In a statement, his management company Cyclone Promotions said a proposed date in November was “unsuitable to all parties”.

Cyclone said they are disappointed for the boxers and fans but said refunds will be available for ticket holders.
They went on: “We are currently working to arrange a date for a new fight and we are confident that Carl Frampton can be a world champion again.”
