Friday night will see both McCullough and Conlan in European title action, co-heading the bill for the Waterfront Brawl.

Former champion-turned-promoter Barry McGuigan is promising fans both a great night and the chance to witness the rise of a new generation of boxing talent.

"We're building talent. Give me a couple of years and we'll develop another Frampton," he told UTV.

Marc McCullough will be facing his toughest test to date when he goes up against undefeated Slovak Martin Parlagi over 10 rounds for the vacant WBO European Featherweight belt.

Meanwhile, Jamie Conlan will be defending his recent WBO European Super-Flyweight belt against Hungary's Gabor Molnar.

Middleweight Conrad Cummings will be taking on seasoned Hungarian Lajos Munkacsi over six rounds in only his third bout, while Limerick's Willie Casey will face Poland's Krzystof Rogowski.

Conall Carmichael is set to fight Uganda's Moses Matovu over four rounds in an international Cruiserweight contest.

And Ghana's Isaac Dogboe, sparring partner of none other than world title contender Carl Frampton, will take on Turkey's Nedim Kara in an international Featherweight contest.

Frampton himself will be ring-side on Friday night, with the action and commentary streamed live from the Waterfront Hall on Doors open at 6pm, with the top four fights on the bill streamed from about 7.30pm.
