Carl Frampton will be aiming to make history this summer when he takes on WBO super-featherweight champion Jamel Herring in a blockbuster showdown in Belfast on June 13.
If Frampton can manage to wrestle the belt from his opponent's grip on home soil in Northern Ireland, he would become the first Irish boxer to win world titles at three different weights.
As things stand, the official venue for the fight has yet to be revealed as the announcement was put back due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has seen the boxing authorities suspend all bouts in April and May.
Despite there being doubts about bouts from June onwards, preparations are still underway for Frampton's fight and both the SSE Arena and Windsor Park are being considered as venues.
Although Frampton is not pushing for one venue or the other, he has hinted a second fight at Windsor would be appealing after he outclassed Luke Jackson at the home of Northern Ireland football in the summer of 2018 in front of 23,000 fans.
He told Belfast Live Sport: "To put 25,000 bums on seats and potentially witness me making history, it makes sense for everyone to have the fight at Windsor. The fans want to see it there, and more fans will get to see it at Windsor."
Frampton lost to Josh Warrington back in 2018, losing by unanimous decision, but the Northern Irishman got back to winning ways with a UD victory over Tyler McCreary in Las Vegas last year.
Of the Belfast-born star's 27 wins, 15 of those have come by way of knockout, proving that he has the punching power to trouble his opponents while his quick hands make him a handful for anyone.
Herring knows all about hard work, having served as a US Marine, and he will be eager to extend his impressive winning streak with the scalp of Frampton come June 13.
The 34-year-old American won the super-featherweight title in May last year, beating Masayuki Ito, before he successfully defended the belt with an impressive victory over Lamont Roach in November.
'Semper Fi' has come out on top in his last five bouts, taking his overall career record to 21-2-0, and he has also showcased good power with 10 of those successes coming by way of knockout.
This will be the first time that Herring has fought outside of the United States and it will be interesting to see how he deals with a pro-Frampton crowd, who are expected to provide the champion with a hostile reception.
There is not much to separate these two fighters heading into the bout, with both packing power and speed, but I am going to give the nod to the 5/4 challenger Frampton.
I am still unsure how Herring will cope with the hostile reception in Belfast, as this is his first fight outside of the States, and Frampton will be hoping to use this to his advantage.
If the Northern Irishman can get off to a fast start, put his opponent on the back foot straight away and feed off the energy of the crowd, then there is every chance he will be making history on home soil on June 13.
