Frampton is also holding onto his hopes of concluding the trilogy with rival Léo Santa Cruz, after he handed the Tiger's Bay fighter his first defeat.

Frampton (23-1, 14 KOs) has not fought since losing his WBA version of the world featherweight title to Leo Santa Cruz on points in January but victory over Gutierrez will secure a shot at American Gary Russell Jr, the WBC champion.

The 23-year-old Gutierrez is considered a rising star in the weight division and has lost just one of his 35 fights.

FORMER two-weight world champion Carl Frampton will fight Mexico's Andres Gutierrez at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast on July 29.

The same can be said of the Jackal's dream of fighting at Windsor Park as the July fight is going ahead at the SSE Arena. Many observers felt that Gutierrez was extremely unfortunate to lose that fight.

'I have lost one fight but I thought I won that.

Gutierrez has agreed to travel to Frampton's home town and believes he has all the skills required to come out on top.

Gutierrez, known as "The Jaguar", was handed his first professional loss previous year when former Santa Cruz victim Christian Mijares beat him on a majority decision, with Gutierrez grossly missing weight for the contest.

'I'm excited to be boxing at home again.

"I tell all the Queretanos that I'm not going to let them down and I'm going to put soul, life and heart and I will fight for what I most want, that's why I'll prevail". The man known as "Jaguarcito" is ranked in the top-ten with the WBC and on closer inspection his record reveals that his only loss was a highly controversial majority points decision to former unified world champion Christian Mijares in June of a year ago.
