Jono Carroll has been given a date for his next fight.

The Dubliner, who recently inked promotional terms with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing, is set to fight in a final eliminator for a world title.

Carroll, unbeaten in 16 with three early finishes, is the current International Boxing Federation Inter-Continental champion at super-featherweight.

And he has been matched with Guillaume Frenois of France, with the winner to get a shot at current red belt ruler Tevin Farmer.

The IBF, whose title was retained by Farmer earlier this month when he stopped James Tennyson inside five rounds at the TD Garden in Boston, revealed that Carroll will face Frenois before the end of the year.

The fight is set to take place on December 8 at the Sheffield Arena, exclusively live on Sky Sports, as part of the supporting cast to Kell Brook's return.

Further details regarding the card, which Boxing Scene understands will see Brook face current Commonwealth super-welterweight champion Michael Zerafa at the top of the bill, will be revealed in due course.

IN OTHER NEWS:   Anthony Yarde, Callum Johnson, and Joshua Buatsi may be flying high at light heavyweight, but Bob Ajisafe says he would jump at the chance of facing any of them.

Ajisafe – the former British and Commonwealth Light Heavyweight champion, as well as an IBO World Title challenger – returns to action on November 17 at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse, and the 33-year-old has the young guns in his sights.

“I'd fight any of them, and I'm confident I could beat all of them,” said Ajisafe, 17-3 (7), who is returning to action after over a year’s hiatus.  “Buatsi is up and coming and looks a good prospect, and I'd love a fight with Callum Johnson.

“I've seen a few of Anthony Yarde's fights, but who has he really fought?  He hasn’t fought anyone in the top ten; he's got a good ranking with the WBO because his promoter has pushed him down that route, but who has he fought domestically?  He hasn’t even won a domestic title, apart from the Southern Area.  When is he actually going to fight someone credible?  Don’t get me wrong, I understand the process and they're building him up, but I'd happily take that fight.”
