Carl Frampton’s Opponent Announced For Next Month’s Belfast Bout

Carl Frampton’s next fight has been confirmed, as he makes his return in Belfast on November 18.

The ‘Jackal’ will face Mexican Horacio Garcia to head up a stacked card, which also features Paddy Barnes and a world title fight for Michael Conlan.

Frampton has not fought since his loss to Leo Santa Cruz in Las Vegas in January. He was chalked down to fight Andrés Gutierez in July, but the Jackal missed weight and later that day, Gutierez slipped in the shower, sustaining an injury which caused the card to be cancelled.

Frampton’s next opponent, Horacio Garcia, boasts a professional record of 33-3-1.

This will come as a huge test to the former world champion, but in front of his home crowd, he will be favourite for the clash, as he looks to bounce straight back from the sole blemish on his 23-1 record.
