    6-7 shows to be announced next week according to Warren, which will no doubt have something to do with the ol' BT deal.

    So, what are we predicting will be revealed? We have the Belfast card in February, Langford is to defend his British title in Birmingham, Warrington said he'll be fighting in March/April etc.

    Dickens-Ward in Manchester on Feb 25th with Flanagan vs someone good (hopefully not Craig Evans), I'd love a Beltran fight.

    Leed with Warrington vs hopefully someone good, IBF eliminator or something. Nicola Adams debut, Tyrone Nurse british defense

    Williams-Patterson, Craig Evans & all the welsh guys

    London show with Skeete, Boy Jones etc. Maybe a Billy Joe defense

    Liverpool with Liam Smith return, Derry Mathews, Stalker etc

    All guesses

    Good competitive matches is all he needs imo,yes it would have been good for him to manage to start it off with something big but Rome wasn't built in a day,I just hope for good opponents and not the weakest WBO guy in the rankings type fights, this is his chance to really get it right and I hope he does

    Makes sense going to Belfast, should be a cracking atmosphere and he needs to show he can do it just as good as/better than Sky.

    the belfast show is meant to be a regular BoxNation show.

    This is going to be pretty underwhelming. Warren does not have the stable to put on 7 shows of a decent quality.

    Surprising that, quality of fight not good enough I guess?

    Completely agree about Belfast. Went to see Frampton fight at the Odyssey and couldn't believe how good the atmosphere was and how loud and trouble free it was. Very different to the likes of the fake football shite of a Matchroom event in Leeds. Atmosphere will come across very well on BT and show that Eddie isn't the only game in town.

    You are not going to get that kind of atmophere for Jamie Conlon v WBO Ranked Mexican with a Padded Record though. Same as Hearn won't get it with Burnett.

    Framptons popularity is about more than just being a good fighter from Belfast. Same as Hatton crossing over in Manchester and Terry Flanagan struggling to sell 17 tickets.

    I agree that Frampton is a special case but also that people in Belfast seem determined to enjoy themselves in events such as this and will provide a better atmosphere than the usual Fish Eye Fiasco.

    Lindsay-Appleby was one of the best boxing atmospheres I've witnessed on TV.
