With a chance at the super-bantamweight belt of current holder Léo Santa Cruz at stake, the pair will certainly mean business when they step into the ring at the Odyssey Arena on 4 April.
Even with the home advantage, Frampton insists he is taking things one fight at a time though.
And he's well aware that Cazáres, nearly 10 years his senior, has already held a world title and will be keen for another crack at it.
People are looking ahead to big fights, but if I don’t beat Hugo … then the big fights go away.
Carl ‘The Jackal’ Frampton
"I'm no fool - he's coming here to win. He sees a big, all-Mexican showdown if he beats me," Frampton told UTV Sport.
"But I've trained really hard for this. I've been 13 weeks away from home, 220-230 rounds of sparring. I'm ready for this."
Belfast boxing fans are expected to pack out the Odyssey to support Frampton in his home city.
But that prospect doesn't faze his opponent.
Speaking to UTV via an interpreter, Cazáres said: I think it's going to be a great thing that there will be a lot of fans.
"But inside the ring, it's just going to be Carl and me."
Meanwhile, the undercard is also set to feature plenty of action - including Belfast's Jamie Conlan in the first title fight of his career.
He will be up against Belgium's Benjamin Smoes for the vacant WBO European Super-Flyweight belt.
