CYCLONE PROMOTIONS HAVE officially announced that Carl Frampton’s fight with Andres Gutierrez is cancelled but have made no comment about a reported split with the Belfast boxer.

In a statement issued on Twitter today, Cyclone say they have been working to agree a new date for the postponed bout — which was due to take place on 29 July — but that a November date proved unsuitable to all parties.

Anyone who bought tickets for the original fight — for which Frampton was one pound overweight and was called off after Gutierrez injured himself slipping in the shower  — will get a full refund.

Despite reports Frampton is set to part ways with his manager Barry McGuigan — CEO of Cyclone — the statement goes on to say that the promoters are working to arrange a date for a new fight and are confident that Frampton can become world champion again.
