At the weekend, Carl Frampton announced that after leaving Cyclone Promotions he?d be promoted by Frank Warren.

It was also suggested that the former world champion would be having his first fight under the Warren banner in December.

We now understand that the first fight since Carl lost his world title to Leo Santa Cruz in a re-match, could be in November.

Looking to fight in front of his home town crowd, it has been confirmed that the SSE Arena, in Belfast, is free on Saturday 18 November.

Warren, talking about adding the name of Frampton to the fighters he promotes, has remarked about Carl,

‘I am thrilled we have the opportunity to showcase someone of his stature.

‘Carl is a massive attraction in the sport and one of just a few where tickets are like gold dust whenever they get in the ring.

‘The signing of Carl gives us a real foothold in Belfast, which is a great territory and one where we will continue to look to build up the local scene.’

That?s good news for the boxing scene in Belfast and it?ll be interesting to see who is chosen as Frampton?s opponent in the next stage of his career.
