Tomorrow night's fight between former two-weight world champion Carl Frampton and Andres Gutierrez in Belfast is off.
The bout had been sanctioned as a WBC World Featherweight title eliminator but that was quashed after Frampton came in one pound over the 126lb limit.
Gutierrez suffered injuries due to a freak accident and posted a photos of those injuries to his personal social media account. He suffered several bad cuts, reportedly due to a slip and fall accident in the shower.
