'Jackal' joins Warren

Carl Frampton has announced that he has signed a promotional deal with Frank Warren and that he will fight in his home city of Belfast before Christmas.

Frampton, a former two-weight world champion, had previously been managed by Barry McGuigan since first turning professional in 2009. But in August the 30-year-old brought their long-standing partnership to an end, explaining that he was "confident now is the right time to move forward and take my career into my own hands".

Frampton made the announcement shortly after his scheduled fight against Andres Gutierrez was postponed, with the Northern Irishman weighing in one pound overweight before the Mexican injured himself slipping in the shower.

The separation has been a protracted affair, with the British Boxing Board of Control claiming earlier this month that McGuigan was still contracted as Frampton's manager.
