The stage was set for the much talked about comeback of Carl Frampton. He was excited and happy, but most of all ready to fight in Belfast once again on July 29th.
Sadly disturbing news surfaced before fight night. “The Jackal” failed to make weight and came a pound over the featherweight limit thus eliminating the WBC title eliminator factor for Frampton. Then word got out that challenger Andres Gutierrez fell in the shower and sustained damage to his teeth and chin. The Mexican was unable to take part in the fight and this lead to the cancellation of the whole event with less than 24 hours notice.
