McDonnell, 27, is due to make a mandatory defence by November 11. Dennis Hobson, McDonnell’s manager, has reportedly signed an agreement with Queensberry Promotions, run by Frank Warren's children George and Francis, which will see McDonnell defend his title on the BoxNation subscription channel.
Hobson said: “We’re absolutely delighted to link up with Queensberry Promotions and BoxNation.
“This deal has been in the pipeline for quite some time following conversations between myself and George Warren.
“We’re hugely looking forward to Jamie defending his world championship on the channel and developing him into one of the biggest names in boxing.”
