The 19 October fight will double-up as a European title defence for Frampton.

'The Jackal' is the current European, Commonwealth, and IBF Inter-Continental Super Bantamweight champion and defeated Kiko Martinez in February to win the European title.

The 26-year old now has his sights set firmly on a world title shot.

"It puts me - after I win this fight - in poll position and hopefully I will be back on for a world title in the fight after, in February time," Frampton said.

His planned European defence at Wembley last month failed to materialize against Everth Briceno as he had an ear injury.

"It was definitely the worse part of my career so far," he said.

"Being overruled by a GP was really frustrating and I still believed I should have been fighting. But that's in the past, you have to move on."

Tickets for the world title eliminator go on sale from Monday.
