Title fight for Burnett on Frampton versus Quigg undercard

Ryan Burnett will face Anthony Settoul for the vacant WBC International Bantamweight title at the sold-out Manchester Arena on February 27, live on Sky Sports Box Office.


It’s a dream night for Belfast-boy Burnett as he fights in front of hordes of his hometown fans that are making the trip to see Carl Frampton’s World title unification blockbuster with Scott Quigg, and the unbeaten British champion will be looking to make a big statement against the French former EU champion who has mixed with four-weight World ruler Nonito Donaire.

Burnett claimed the British crown in his first outing with new promoter Eddie Hearn in Manchester in November with a shut-out win over Jason Booth and will be targeting a title that will move him up the rankings on February 27.

“This is the perfect opportunity for Ryan and the timing couldn’t be better,” said Hearn. “Settoul is a real step up for him and I’m looking for him to put in a great performance on a special night and then move on to headline in Belfast before the summer.”
