Paddy Barnes is to fight for the WBO European flyweight belt in Belfast on 17 June.

The 30-year-old will fight his as yet unannounced opponent at the Waterfront Hall.

A European gold medalist as an amateur, Barnes is aiming to repeat his success as a professional.

It will be the Belfast boxer's third professional fight. In March he scored a points victory against Adrian Dimas Garzon.

Jamie Conlan, 30, will also feature on the bill.
