The Frampton vs Donaire Bill is shaping up nicely at the moment with another world title fight confirmed this morning for the show.
Indeed, April 21st is going to be a big night of boxing everywhere.
Amir Khan will have his comeback fight on the same night in Liverpool against Canada’s Phil Lo Greco.
But for the boxing purists out there perhaps the rival show that night in Belfast will now carry more interest.
Today promoter Frank Warren confirmed on social media that Zolani Tete will return to action on the show:

Exciting news indeed.
Tete recorded a massive knockout last time out back in November of 2017 against Siboniso Gonya.
Don’t blink with Tete – his last fight ended inside 11 seconds:
The event is just a little over two months away now with the main event fighters Carl Frampton and Nonito Donaire now in full training camps.
As a contest it could prove to be an exciting one given the way both men tend to fight.
Granted, Donaire is perhaps not in his prime but an argument could also be made that neither is Frampton.
The Belfast man is definitely closer to his prime however than Donaire and goes into the fight as a warm favorite with the bookmakers.
