Featherweight contest

2016 Fighter of the Year and three-time World Champion Carl Frampton returns to Belfast on November 18th on a huge double World Title show, where he faces Mexican Horacio Garcia.

Garcia, 27, holds a top record of 33 wins from 37 contests; with 24 of those victories coming by way of knockout. Before a surprise loss to Diuhl Olguin, which he quickly avenged, his only career losses had come to two-weight World Champion Hozumi Hasegawa and rising star Joseph Diaz.
 
“This is a fight that really excites me,” said Frampton. “Garcia will definitely come and have a go. He’s a typical Mexican warrior, he’s tough and he’s game and he’ll try and put it on me in front of my home crowd."

The WBO World Bantamweight Title

Zolani Tete (25-3, 20 KOs) makes the first defence of his WBO Bantamweight World Championship against fellow South African Siboniso Gonya (11-1, 5 KOs).

Tete won the governing body's interim belt back in April, outscoring Arthur Villanueva by a wide margin. He oozed class over 12 rounds on his way to an emphatic points win over the Filipino, securing a unanimous decision.

In an interesting twist, the WBO then elevated Tete to full World Champion status after the previous Champion Marlon Tapales was stripped of his belt.

With the win, Tete became a two-weight World Champion, following his devastating KO victory against Ellesmere Port’s Paul Butler for the IBF Super-Flyweight title at the Echo Arena Liverpool back in 2015.

Gonya is third in line for Tete’s World Title. The 25-year-old, who hails from the Kwazulu-Natal province, holds a record of 11-1 is relishing the challenge of fighting one of the best Bantamweights on the globe.
