Carl Frampton homecoming fight announcement open to the public

The public has been invited to Champion Belfast boxer Carl Frampton's press conference in the Ulster Hall on Wednesday.

In the past week The Jackal has confirmed his new team including trainer the British, Commonwealth and European champion Jamie Moore along with promoter Frank Warren and BT Sport also coming on board.

As well as unveiling the new line-up, Frampton will announce details of his homecoming fight. It's been reported a possible fight could take place in the SSE Arena in November.

Last week the boxer talked about the importance of getting a fight organised and ending the year on a high.

Earlier this year a bout with Andres Gutierrez was pulled the night before after the Mexican fell in the shower. Later Frampton split with long-time manager Barry McGuigan and Cyclone Promotions.

The Ulster Hall event opens at 11am on Wednesday with the press conference starting at 11.30am.
