Burnett excited about ring and Belfast return this weekend

RYAN Burnett is looking to end a very disappointing 2014 on a high before registering a break through 2015.

The Belfast bantamweight prospect fights for the first time in 12 months in the Devinish this coming Saturday and before trading leather in the York Hall seven days later.

The Olympic Youth gold medal winner is excited about returning to the ring this Saturday and is keen to show Belfast fight fans what he has learnt under Adam Booth.

Speaking to the Belfast Newsletter ahead of his bout with Valentin Marinov Burnett said

“It has been very frustrating and I was out for over a year because of a number of different things. Fights were on and then they were off – but I am now working under trainer Adam Booth and he has taught me loads of things in the two months I have been with him.

“I have been training in Monte Carlo and I have been getting fantastic sparring – so I am feeling fit and ready to go,” he said before discussing his Belfast bout.

“I am glad to be back after a year out but it is even more special because I am fighting in Belfast.

“I fight in the Devenish and then I am out again in the York Hall in a few weeks. I want to win both fights and deliver a big year in 2015,” said Burnett.
