Rising prospect Sean McComb will headline at the Ulster Hall on February 1.

McComb has been developing at quite a rate since turning professional in the summer of 2018, chalking up nine straight victories.

The Belfast light-welterweight will expect to be aiming for a first title in 2020 and a win over Mauro Maximiliano Godoy will keep him moving in that direction.

McComb said: "This is another step up and I'm happy to take it. It's exciting. I've always said the better opponent I face, the better me. The better I'll box. The better I'll fight. I watched Godoy fight on the undercard of the Golden Contract. He tries to control a lot of the pace and he puts his punches together very well.

"I'll be working on catching his punches and coming back with my own. I think it'll be a more technical fight than my last outing and I think I'll definitely look better against Godoy than (Emiliano) Dominguez.

"I learned so much from that last fight. I threw a lot of punches that I didn't need to throw. He was there to be hit but I could've gone for a walk rather than stay and slug it out. I should have been smarter.

"This will be the start of another massive year for Belfast and for myself. I'll hopefully be fighting for titles and there are all those great shows at the Ulster Hall, which is one of the best boxing venues in the world."

Also on the show will be unbeaten Ballymena prospect Steven Donnelly as well as Belfast men Padraig McCrory and Ruairi Dalton.
