Valdez-Gutierrez, Frampton-TBA in Works for 11/30 Las Vegas

Multiple sources have advised that an interesting doubleheader is in the works for November 30th in Las Vegas at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino. The Top Rank promoted card could potentially become a tripleheader and will be streamed live on ESPN+.

Former WBO featherweight champion Oscar Valdez (26-0) will make his super featherweight debut against rugged veteran Andres Gutierrez (38-2-1) who has been in the ring with former champions Abner Mares, Cristian Mijares and Tomas Rojas.

Valdez struggled to make the 126 pound featherweight title in his most recent fights. In total he defended his belt 6 times.  Gutierrez has won 3 fights in a row since losing to Mares in 2017.


In the co-feature bout, former two-division champion Carl Frampton was going to face former super bantamweight champion Isaac Dogboe in a featherweight showdown - but Dogboe withdrew last week for undisclosed reasons.

Frampton (26-2) will be fighting for the first time since his loss to IBF featherweight champion Josh Warrington last December.  He was scheduled to return to the ring on August 10th against Emmanuel Dominguez but suffered a freak injury in the hotel lobby during fight week when a large ornament was accidentally knocked over and fractured his left hand on impact.

Dogboe (20-2), who may or may not fight until next year, was looking to restart his career in the featherweight division after suffering back-to-back losses to Emanuel Navarrete. He previously captured the WBO super bantamweight title in April, 2018 when he stopped Jessie Magdaleno.

Gutierrez is a good introductory fight to 130 for Valdez, would like to see him take his WBO shot immediately after this, then Frampton could be his first defense

Why not just make Valdez vs Frampton? Frampton Vs Magdaleno should be possible as well

Comment by Vodkaholic on 10-02-2019

[QUOTE=RJJ-94-02=GOAT;20096749]Was he ever good? His record is extremely padded but he has just beat Tomas Rojas who despite being well past his best is probably Gutierrez’s best win. He’s a tough kid and will likely take Valdez rounds but it…

[QUOTE=RJJ-94-02=GOAT;20096757]Yeah I seen it was reportedly gonna happen at 128 also, I was looking forward to the fight though, I think the styles would’ve really meshed well. They’ve sparred a lot as well and are very familiar with each other…
