Michael Conlan at the 2016 Rio Olympics
Paddy Barnes will fight on the same fight card as fellow Olympian Michael Conlan in New York next year.
Conlan confirmed this week he would headline his professional debut at Madison Square Gardens on St.Patrick's day.
Fellow Belfast man Barnes will be joining him - but won't be sharing in the pro Debut honours.
He's already scheduled to fight on November 5th at Titanic Exhibition Centre in Belfast on the under-card of Jamie Conlan's Commonwealth title bout.
