WATCH: Brilliant BT Sport promo for Frampton v Donaire

It was finally confirmed officially this afternoon that Carl Frampton will face four-weight world champion Nonito Donaire next.

The Belfast featherweight takes on the Filipino legend on Saturday April 21st at the SSE Odyssey Arena in what looks like his final test before a planned world title tilt at the end of Summer.

The fight will be Frampton’s second with his new team of trainer Jamie Moore, advisors MTK Global, and promoter Frank Warren.

Under Warren, this will be Frampton’s second fight on BT Sport following his entertaining win over Horacio Garcia in November.

The fight may be over three months away, however the big sports network have already released a promo video for the match-up.
