Ryan Burnett will return to action against Jelbirt Gomera at Belfast’s Ulster Hall on May 17.
The former unified bantamweight champion will enjoy home comforts against the Filipino southpaw when he bids to bounce back from his first professional defeat last time out.
Burnett (19-1, 9 KOs) was forced to retire against Nonito Donaire after four rounds due to a back injury in November.
“I want to be world champion again. Nothing else matters. This is a significant step in that campaign and I’m delighted it’s taking place in my home city,” said Burnett.
“My opponent on May 17 is the way of me being back where I know I belong. You will see my determination on fight night.”
