Carl Frampton's partnership with Barry McGuigan close to ending - reports

It is being reported that Carl Frampton's partnership with manager Barry McGuigan could be close to ending.

According to the BBC, a reliable source has said that behind the scenes the relationship between the pair has begun to "unravel".

Carl Frampton stood down as a board member of Cyclone Promotions 10 days before his scheduled contest with Andres Gutierrez.

The build up to the fight saw Frampton weigh in one pound overweight, before the contest was called off when Mexican fighter Gutierrez injured himself after slipping in the shower.

Frampton has worked with former world champion McGuigan since signing a professional deal in 2009 and in the past it has been noted that the pair have a very close relationship.

The BBC says it understands the postponement put added pressure on the relationship between the pair and it is now expected that Frampton will leave McGuigan's promotional stable Cyclone Promotions.
