Unbeaten Super-Flyweight Jamie Conlan is set to challenge Jerwin Ancajas for the IBF World Title on November 18th.
The intriguing match-up is part of a bumper bill in the SSE Arena in Belfast, topped by Featherweight Carl Frampton's return.
Speaking about the fight at a press conference on Wednesday, Conlan said: "I've seen Jerwin Ancajas up close and personal. I really rate him. It's a fight I believe I can win!"
Back in June, Ancajas was chief support to Manny Pacquiao v Jeff Horn at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia. The Filipino was mightly impressive as he chopped down Japanese foe Teiru Kinoshita for a seventh round stoppage.
Jamie was ringside that day to watch younger brother Michael, who also fought on the card, so Conlan has already seen his next opponent live in the flesh.
Conlan's only bout of 2017 came in February against tough Nicaraguan Yader Cardoza, winning a split decision at the Waterfront Hall. Now 'The Mexican' is looking forward to fighting again in his hometown.
"It's very hard to describe the atmosphere [in Belfast]. To be part of an exciting fight is something I'm looking forward to," he added.
