Boxing Scene have been informed that Carl Frampton will tomorrow (Sunday, September 24) announce a promotional deal with Frank Warren.
Details are scarce at this stage but 'Scene can, at least, confirm catergorically that Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Sports will not reunite with 'The Jackal'.
Frampton, who split with long-time promoter Cyclone Promotions and manager Barry McGuigan last month has become one of the hottest free agents in boxing. It must be added however that the British Boxing Board of Control said last week that McGuigan was still contracted as Frampton's manager. It remains to be seen how that will come to its conclusion.
The former two-weight world champion also left trainer Shane McGuigan to team up with former European Super Welterweight champion Jamie Moore in a bid to freshen things up and to help steer him back to world title glory.
In addition to Moore being in his corner Frampton joined MTK Global, run by former world title challenger Matthew Macklin, earlier this week with the ever growing company acting in an advisory capacity to the 30-year-old Northern Irishman.
In January this year Frank Warren talked of how he would like to bring more big-time boxing back to the country's capital of Belfast, this after signing a broadcast deal with BT Sport.
“Boxing in Belfast is enjoying a renaissance with a number of talented fighters emerging and I am happy that we are able to play our part in delivering big shows to such a knowledgeable audience.”
Jamie Conlan, another MTK Global fighter, has played his part in this drive headlining shows on Warren's subscription channel Boxnation. Conlan has wowed audiences with fight of the year candidates in recent times.
At time of writing no party would confirm the Frampton-Warren link-up which he is expected to confirm in his weekly column for the Sunday Life newspaper tomorrow.
It may well be that later this year or early next year we could see Frampton, Jamie Conlan as well as Paddy Barnes (another MTK Global fighter) and other Irish fighters feature on a big card in Belfast.
