Carl Frampton will lead the charge of local talent at the Odyssey Arena on October 19.
On the bill, Frampton will defend his European and IBF Inter-Continental titles against France’s Jeremy Parodi and it will also be a IBF World title eliminator.
‘The Jackal’ will be joined on the show by some of the brightest and talented fighters on these shores with Jamie Conlan, Eamonn O’Kane, Marc McCullough, Ryan Burnett, Phil Sutcliffe Jnr, Daniel McShane and James Tennyson also featuring.
And as well as Frampton’s belts, there will be another three titles on the line.
Conlan – who fights out of Breen’s Gym in Belfast – takes on Hassan Azaouagh for the WBO European Super-flyweight title, while O’Kane faces Kerry Hope for a Celtic title and Belfast’s Marc McCullough fights Willie ‘Big Bang’ Casey for the Irish Featherweight crown.
And Frampton says he is delighted to be the ‘main attraction’ on such a huge boxing show in Belfast.
“It is a massive bill and there are fighters who could be headlining shows in their own right.
“To headline this show is a privilege and an honour and I am excited. I am looking forward to it and I cannot wait to get going again,” he added.
Contract negoiations and injury has meant Frampton has been out of action since stopping Kiko Martinez in the ninth round of their European title clash at the Odyssey in February.
“It has been the most frustrating time of my career, but it is the only blip really.
“But my ear drum is all healed now and I am ready to go. February is a long time ago and this fight has been a long time coming.
“So I am now getting excited because this fight is getting really close now and I am looking to put on a better performance than ever before,” he said.
The Tigers Bay Super-bantamweight gets married the week after the fight at the Odyssey and there has been constant speculation of a World title fight in the next few months, but Frampton says he is toally focused on Parodi.
“Parodi is durable and tough. He has only one defeat in over 40 fights, so he must be a good fighter.
“He is not a big puncher, but he is smart and the only time he lost was on points, so he will be durable and he can fight a bit.”
Tickets for the show have been flying out and Frampton says Parodi is in for a warm Belfast welcome on October 19.
“Crowds in Francc are like crowds in Germany. They are not very vocal and when you throw a good punch they give you a round of applause.
“It will be a lot more vocal in Belfast and Parodi will know how Kiko Martinez felt in February.
“I am really up for this one and can’t wait to get started at the Odyssey,” he added.
