Carl Frampton's first contest under new promoter Frank Warren will take place in Belfast in November against Mexican Horacio Garcia.

It will be 30-year-old Frampton's first bout since losing to Leo Santa Cruz in January.

Belfast-born Frampton announced his link-up with Warren last month after splitting with Barry McGuigan and Cyclone Propmotions.

He won the IBF and WBA belts of the world super-bantamweight title before beating Santa Cruz in July 2016 to clinch the WBA featherweight title.

Jamie Conlan, also from Belfast, will face Jerwin Ancajas of the Philippines for the IBF world super-flyweight belt on the same bill.
