Frampton Reacts To Fight Called Off Due To Opponent Freak Injury
Carl Frampton reacts to news that his previously scheduled homecoming fight tonight in Belfast has now been pulled at the last minute.
The boxing world is waking up in shock this morning after the news that Carl Frampton opponent Andres Gutierrez had fell in the shower last night in a freak occurrence that has led to the event been pulled entirely tonight.
These pictures tell the story and all you need to know.
A horrific set of injuries to the Mexican unfortunately left the fight organisers with no choice but to call the event off in Belfast tonight.
It is understood that the SSE Arena website is the best port of call for fans to keep updated on how refunds will be processed in due course.
The freak accident followed Carl Frampton missing weight yesterday on the scales, meaning that if the fight did go ahead without the injury, that he would not have been involved in the WBC title eliminator side of it anyway.
