Michael Conlan is set to fight for a world title against Luis Alberto Lopez at the SSE Arena in Belfast on 27 May.
Mexico’s Lopez defeated Josh Warrington in December to claim the IBF featherweight title in Leeds.
The bout will be Conlan’s second shot at a world title after he dramatically lost to Leigh Wood in March 2022.
The 31-year-old since defeated Miguel Marriaga and Karim Guerfi to return to title contention.
Lopez, 29, will be a dangerous opponent for Conlan after he picked up the biggest win of his career as he upset Warrington in Leeds in December on a majority decision.
Belfast fighter Conlan previously outlined his desire to face the Mexican in his home city on St Patrick’s Day.
However, the hand injury sustained by Lopez in his title-winning bout with Warrington has forced a delay.
