Frampton to face Gutierrez in Belfast

Carl Frampton's only professional defeat came against Leo Santa Cruz in January

The opponent and venue for Carl Frampton's ring return have been named with the featherweight taking on Andres Gutierrez at the SSE Arena on 29 July.

Frampton has not fought since his loss to Leo Santa Cruz in their WBA title fight in Las Vegas in January.

Mexican Guitirrez, 23, has lost just one of his 35 fights and is a former WBC Silver Featherweight champion.

Frampton initially expected to fight Santa Cruz for a third time this summer but that bout failed to materialise.
