Gutierrez Vows: I'm Going To Ruin Carl Frampton's Big Night!

ANDRES GUTIERREZ has warned Carl Frampton that he will ruin his homecoming party.

Frampton takes on Gutierrez in his first fight in Belfast in two-and-a-half years.

Gutierrez was greeted with muted applause for yesterday’s open workouts in one of the city’s shopping centres.

The Mexican will face a hostile atmosphere at the SSE Arena on Saturday night in front of 9,000 Frampton fans but says he is not bothered.

“I’m more than ready to be the bad guy,” he said. “I will take everything they can yell. I am going to ruin his big night.”

Frampton, 30, returns to the ring after losing the WBA featherweight title following a close fight with Leo Santa Cruz.

But Gutierrez is keen to set up his own meeting with his compatriot by causing a big upset here on Saturday.

“That’s my plan,” he said. “I’m going for Santa Cruz. That would be a huge fight in Mexico.”

Gutierrez, 24, believes the six-year age gap will help him but Frampton said: “No, it won’t. Thirty used to be an old age in this sport but not any more.

“I’m still feeling good and my engine is improving. The age factor just means experience.

“I’ve been at the very top of this game for years and have much more experience. That will be the real difference.”

Tyson Fury has again claimed he has retired from boxing – but his team say they are unaware of any such move and are planning for him to return to the ring later this year.

The former heavyweight champion posted a message on Instagram yesterday thanking fans for the “epic journey” and finished it with “the end”.

David Haye has held talks with Fury’s cousin Hughie about facing him later this year if Fury beats WBO champion Joseph Parker on September 23.

Gutierrez is a solid fighter fairly heavy-handed but to date has not beat any of the elite or top 5 , 4 which I question his ranking of course it's a WBC ranking...still I expect Frampton to beat him ....it's…

Does Frampton have a point? Is 30 still old for a boxer in the lower weight divisions or no?
