Another big fight has been announced for the Carl Frampton show on November 11 at the SSE Arena. Zolani Tete (25-3) will defend his WBO Bantamweight Title against Siboniso Gonya (11-1).

The South African is holding his second world title after winning the IBF Super Flyweight Title and is one of the most underrated boxers in the world. Unfortunately for Frank Warren, a lot of the blame for that has to go on him. The most recognizable name on his record other than Paul Butler is Moruti Mthalane who beat him in his fourteenth fight for the IBF Flyweight Title. Warren needs to get him recognizable opponents even in a weight class that most fans do not appreciate. It is unlikely that Eddie Hearn would risk either of his champions Jamie McDonnell or Ryan Burnett but Warren could look towards Lee Haskins or even a Juan Carlos Payano.

The card now features two world title bouts, with the other being Jamie Conlan attempting to dethrone Jerwin Ancajas, a Carl Frampton return against an unnamed opponent and Paddy Barnes.
