Carl Frampton will be back in the ring at the end of next month.
The Belfast boxer will fight in his home town at the SSE Arena on July 29th.
He faces Andres Gutierrez in a WBC featherweight eliminator match, the Mexican comes into the fight with just a single defeat on his professional record.
This will be Frampton's first outing since he suffered defeat to Leo Santa Cruz in the WBA featherweight title bout in Las Vegas.
Frampton’s manager, Barry McGuigan – himself a legend of the squared circle – feels they could not have taken on a tougher fight:
“It’s definitely not an easy fight. This is not a walkover, believe me. This is anything but a walkover, this is a very tough fight.”
Frampton echoed those sentiments, saying he will need to produce something special to avoid back to back defeats:
"It’s a very exciting fight,” Frampton told BBC Sport.
“I know the Americans and Al Haymon (Frampton’s US advisor) that we’re working with, they want me back Stateside pretty soon and they’re a bit concerned.
“They’re like ‘just take an easy fight and come back over here to the States,’ but I don’t want to mug people off."
