Former World champion Carl Frampton will return to the ring on November 30 at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, Las Vegas.

Frampton has not boxed since his defeat at the hands of IBF World featherweight champion Josh Warrington last December and had hoped to box in August only for a freak accident leaving him with a broken hand.

Now the Jackal's promotional outfit Top Rank have confirmed his return on a bill that will also feature another former champion, Oscar Valdez. But the Belfast man will not be facing former World super-bantamweight champion Isaac Dogboe, as had been expected.

Top Rank Vice President Carl Moretti said: "Carl will be out again on November 30 in Vegas on the same card as Oscar Valdez. We had looked at Isaac Dogboe as an opponent but that hasn't worked out so we're looking for somebody else."
