Carl Frampton welcomes Nonito Donaire to his home town of Belfast as they do battle for the WBO interim featherweight world title, live on BT Sport and BoxNation on Saturday, 21 April.
Former two-weight world champion Frampton won on points in his comeback fight with Horacio Garcia in November and returns to the SSE Arena ring this weekend.
Frampton has insisted he is determined to silence his critics and put on a show as he welcomes a former four-weight world champion in Donaire.
The Filipino, who has held seven world titles in his long career, is considered a tough opponent for ‘The Jackal’ who is looking to build on his 2017 comeback win.
With a much-anticipated summer fight at Belfast’s Windsor Park a potential reward for Frampton, there is a lot riding on this mouth-watering showdown for the Belfast boxer.
The winner of the Lee Selby v Josh Warrington fight – also exclusively live on BT Sport and BoxNation in May – has been touted as a potential opponent in that fight.
But the former WBA world featherweight champion is not looking too far ahead and is well aware of the threat the 42-fight veteran poses.
Having grown up watching the 35-year-old, Frampton says he knows what to expect when they go head-to-head in front of packed SSE Arena crowd.
All the action is live on BT Sport 1 and BoxNation on Saturday, 21 April, from 7.30pm, while all the televised fights are also available to live stream on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
BT Sport’s coverage, which will also be broadcast in Ultra HD on BT Sport 4K UHD, will be presented by Paul Dempsey and Steve Bunce, with commentary by John Rawling.
