The date for Carl Frampton's challenge of Leo Santa Cruz for the WBA featherweight title has been confirmed as July 30.
Frampton will step up in weight to challenge Santa Cruz at Barclays Center in New York after winning the IBF and WBA super-bantamweight titles by defeating Scott Quigg to extend his professional record to 22-0.
"It's fitting that I will have the chance to recapture this title," PA quotes Frampton as saying.
"This is the fight I wanted and I'm one 100% confident that the belt will be coming home to Belfast. Santa Cruz is a strong and aggressive undefeated champion but his style is made for me.
"Myself and my team have been chasing this fight for a long, long time and that's because we know we have the tools to beat Leo. He throws a lot shots and is a proven operator, it's going to be a great fight."
Three-weight world champion Santa Cruz also has an unbeaten professional record with 32 wins and one draw to his name.
