Exciting prospect Burnett can become a household name says Hearn

Matchroom Boss Eddie Hearn heard so many people sing Ryan Burnett’s praises that he is confident he has just signed a future boxing chart topper.

Hearn signed the Belfast prospect to a long term deal and did so on the back of some very high praise from highly regarded people.

Indeed, the Matchroom boss claims countless number of people informed him Burnett was the most exciting young fighter they had ever seen.

As a result he is excited about working with the Adam Booth trained puncher and believes he can help him before a household name.

“I have lost count of the amount of times people have told me Ryan is one of the most exciting young fighters they have ever seen,” said Hearn. “These thoughts have come from people in the game that I believe in and respect – I am so excited to join forces with Ryan and Adam and deliver them absolutely everything they need to get to the final destination. With Sky Sports, Ryan now has the perfect platform to become a household name and box as frequently as he requires. His exciting style and personality will delight viewers, so sit back and enjoy this journey.”
