Carl Frampton has been told that his shot at WBO world super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring is on.
The World Boxing Organisation have said that Herring must face the Jackal with the winner defending against No.1 challenger Shakur Stevenson.
American Stevenson had hoped he would be next to face Herring.
It is understood that promoter Bob Arum's preferred choice is to stage Herring-Frampton in Belfast, with Las Vegas also a clear option. The fight will happen in either December or January.
Frampton tweeted: "Time to become a three-weight champ."
