Former World Champion Carl Frampton has confirmed that his partnership with manager Barry McGuigan’s Cyclone Promotions has ended.

Frampton released a statement today (Monday) saying that he is ‘confident that now is the right time to move forward and take his career into his own hands’

“I’m continuing with my efforts to get my homecoming fight rescheduled in the very near future,” said Frampton.

“I still believe that I’m the best featherweight in the world.”

Frampton has been guided in his professional career to date by Barry McGuigan, helping him become a two weight world champion.

“I can confirm that I have parted company with Barry McGuigan and Cyclone Promotions. I would like to thank Barry, the McGuigan family and Cyclone Promotions for our time together,” read the statement.

Frampton’s scheduled bout with Andres Gutierrez on 29 July was called off the night before the fight with an injury to Gutierrez.

Less than 10 days before Frampton’s scheduled contest with Gutierrez, the Belfast boxer resigned as a director of Cyclone Promotions.
