IF rumours are to be believed, Carl Frampton will make his Windsor Park bow on August 18 against unheralded Australian Luke Jackson.

‘The Jackal’, a former world super-bantamweight champion last seen slugging it out with Nonito Donaire at Belfast’s Odyssey Arena, was recently linked to a fight with new IBF featherweight champion Josh Warrington. But that fight, rather than take place on August 18 in Belfast, is seemingly one the pair’s promoter, Frank Warren, would like to marinate. Instead, the likelihood is that Jackson gets announced on Wednesday (first reported by Kevin Byrne).
