Unbeaten super bantamweight Carl Frampton (16-0) will be fighting a new opponent at Wembley Arena on July 20.

The Belfast fighter, 26, was set to defend his IBF Inter-Continental title against Fabrian Orozco (20-3-2). However, the Argentinian was knocked out by Julian Evaristo Aristule (23-4) in Santa Fe, Argentina at the weekend. He will therefore not be allowed to compete for 30 days.

"They should not have taken the fight before he was supposed to fight me at Wembley. He is now out of the fight and we will have to find someone else," said Frampton.

It is not known whether Orozco's conqueror Aristule will be offered the fight, but the southpaw hasn't fought outside of Argentina and lost his last two contests prior to stopping Orozco.

"My training, sparring and preparation has gone well and I will be ready to go on July 20," added Frampton.

"I am looking forward to it and can't wait to get in there as my last fight was in February, when I defeated Kiko Martinez at the Odyssey."
