Frampton to fight Gutierrez in Belfast

13 Jun, 2017

Mexican fighter Andres Gutierrez confirms he will be Frampton’s opponent for his July 29th homecoming fight in Belfast. The fight is believed to be an eliminator for the WBC title – although it is not specified whether it is for the featherweight belt held by Gary Russell Jr or the super featherweight belt held by Miguel Berchelt. As Gutierrez is ranked #10 at featherweight, with Frampton at #1, it is assumed to be a 126lbs eliminator. Gutierrez:

I know I have a great opportunity and I will not waste it. He had wanted this from a long time ago. I’m very happy for this news they gave me. I know it will be very difficult, but I have the character to prevail. I tell all the Querétanos that I’m not going to let them down that I’m going to put soul, life, and heart and I will fight for what I most want, that’s why I’ll prevail.
