Carl Frampton’s promoter, Frank Warren, has revealed when the Belfast fighter is likely to return to the ring.
His opponent could be the former four-weight champion Nonito Donaire with the SSE Arena in Belfast being the likely venue.
Frampton’s comeback in November was a successful one after beating Horacio Garcia on points.
Frampton will be hoping to bring a world title fight to Windsor Park in the Summer.
Leo Santa Cruz dethroned Frampton of his WBA title in Las Vegas last January and then split with Barry McGuigan’s Cyclone Promotions in the Summer.
IBF featherweight champion Lee Selby is likely to defend his title against Josh Warrington in a British super fight at Elland Road meaning Frampton is hoping to make an urgent return to the world title scene.
Selby vs Frampton has been a fight which many boxing fans have been crying out for.
Donaire is an opponent who would prove difficult as he has held seven world titles over 17 years.
