Four very testing months have passed since Carl Frampton’s last scheduled fight was due, a bout with Mexican Andres Gutierrez was cancelled.
This was after the former 2 weight World Champion and pride of Northern Ireland surprisingly failed the weight by a pound. Then Gutierrez slipped in the shower, sustaining severe facial cuts and bruisers forcing the cancellation. Much has happened since then, a split with manager Barry McGuigan and trainer son Shane has added to his problems.
This weekend we are promised a new rejuvenated, back in love with boxing Frampton, as his new promoter Frank Warren brings him back to Belfast this Saturday 18th November to highlight the rebirth of the Jackal.
Frampton also has a new trainer in the very capable hands of Salford’s former British, Commonwealth and European Champion Jamie Moore and he has based himself in Manchester to prepare for this fight.
