It's been revealed that a deal has been reached for IBF bantamweight world champion Carl Frampton (22-0, 14KOs) to move up in weight for a showdown with WBA world featherweight champion Leo Santa Cruz (32-0-1, 18KOs) in the summer, according to the Belfast boxer's management team.
On Friday night, Cyclone Promotions boss Barry McGuigan revealed on Twitter that they had signed up for the fight, which will take place in New York.
Frampton is aiming to become the first Northern Ireland boxer to win world titles at different weights.
In February, he beat Scott Quigg in a super-bantamweight unification bout.
It saw the 29-year-old add the WBA belt to the IBF title he already held.
However, he was later stripped of the WBA crown because he did not agree to a defence against mandatory challenger Guillermo Rigondeaux - who the sanctioning body has now ordered to face Moises Flores for the vacant crown.
Frampton has a mandatory due under the IBF to Shingo Wake of Japan, but there is no word on whether or not Frampton will vacate the belt or submit an application to get an exception from the sanctioning body.
On the same night as the Frampton v Quigg clash in Manchester, Santa Cruz defended his WBA featherweight title by knocking out former beltholder Kiko Martinez.
The date and official venue will be announced at a later time. Showtime will televise the fight.
