Carl Frampton is all set for his shot at history when he is due to face Jamel Herring for the world title later in the year.

Top promoter Bob Arum has revealed that he wants to stage Carl Frampton's showdown with WBO super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring in Belfast's SSE Arena.

While Arum is making plans for Frampton to face Herring in Las Vegas behind closed doors - if the American retains his WBO world super-featherweight title this weekend at the MGM Grand in Sin City - he wants to stage the fight in Belfast.

Frampton ticked over ahead of his clash with Herring last weekend with a stoppage of Scotland's Darren Traynor and is now waiting to see when and where he will bid to become a three-weight champion. Current coronavirus restrictions suggest he will have to head Stateside but if the local government can facilitate fans indoors then Arum is ready to come to Belfast.
