Carl Frampton is on the verge of Irish boxing history.

And we can’t wait to see the Belfast boy become a three-weight world champion.

Negotiations for a fight with WBO super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring are at their final stages.

And we are bringing the moment of history to Frampton’s hometown.

The venue has yet to be decided, but it will be in the Northern Ireland capital this summer.

Frampton has had a fabulous career to date and I’ve been delighted to promote him since 2017.

The former IBF and WBA super-bantamweight and WBA featherweight champion will now get the chance to do what no other Irish fighter has ever managed.

Frampton, Steve Collins and Katie Taylor have all won world titles in two divisions.

But nobody from the Emerald Isle has gained it in a third. What a night it will be if the ‘Jackal’ can show his best once more to create history.

If he pulls it off, then surely he will go down as the country’s greatest in the ring.

And we are also getting involved in Frampton’s former gym-mate Josh Taylor’s next fight.

The Scot has signed up with Top Rank in the US but he is set to defend his WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles in Edinburgh.

Taylor must face IBF mandatory Apinun Khongsong next.

We are working with Top Rank to bring that fight here to the UK and give British fight fans another huge night of boxing.

Next week we will look at Tyson Fury’s huge night against Deontay Wilder when we are out in Las Vegas for the WBC heavyweight showdown.

But I’ve been speaking with Fury over the last few weeks and I have to say mentally and physically he sounds like he is in a great place right now.
