Belfast boxer Carl Frampton will be back in the ring on 30 November, when he returns to Las Vegas to take on undefeated US fighter Tyler McCreary.

The Jackal will be fighting at super-featherweight for the first time, taking on McCreary in a 10-round contest at that weight.

The bout will be Frampton’s first after the cancellation of his scheduled clash with Emmanuel Doninguez in August following a freak accident that resulted in a nasty hand injury.

A pillar fell on Frampton’s left hand in his hotel lobby in Philadelphia five days out from his fight against Dominguez, breaking the fifth metacarpal and putting him in cast for weeks.

He will now be hoping to get back on track and once again prove himself in the ring.
