Titanic Quarter in Belfast will host Carl Frampton’s IBF super-bantamweight world title fight with champion Kiko Martinez on 6 September.

The venue for Frampton’s first world title shot was revealed at a press conference on Tuesday.

Frampton defeated the Spaniard in his home city of Belfast last year to win the European super-bantamweight title.

However, Martinez went on to win the IBF world title later in the year and he will defend the belt.

Frampton has won all 18 of his professional fights.

The 27-year-old stopped Martinez in the ninth round of their contest at the Odyssey Arena 17 months ago.

Frampton withstood a strong challenge from the Spaniard before flooring him late in the fight.

It was a first knock-out defeat for Martinez, who won the IBF title by defeating Jonathan Romero six months later before successful defences against Jeffrey Mathebula and Japan’s Hozumi Hasegawa.
