Two-weight world champion Carl Frampton will face Scottish fighter Darren Traynor on his return to action this Saturday.

Frampton had been slated to take on Vahram Vardanyan but that was scratched due to the Armenian's difficulty getting a visa. 

He will instead go toe to toe with Traynor in a lightweight contest as part of BT Sport's summer series of boxing in London. 

Frampton, 33, wants to make history by becoming Ireland's first three-weight world champion. Frampton, Katie Taylor and Steve Collins are the only three fighters from this island who have conquered the world at two separate weights.

The Belfast man has secured the IBF and WBA super-bantamweight titles, plus the WBA (Super) featherweight title.

His bout with Jamel Herring for the WBO junior-lightweight belt was due to take place in June but has been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Frampton is hoping to meet Herring later this year.

This will be his first taste of action since beating Tyler McCreary last November.

Michael Conlan meanwhile is on the same card. He steps into the ring with Frenchman Sofiane Takoucht. 

Takoucht was beaten by Josh Warrington, who was defending his IBF world featherweight title, back in October. 

In December 2018, Warrington retained that title after getting the better of Frampton in a tough 12-rounder.
