WATCH: Ryan Burnett v Joseafat Reyes weigh-in and head-to-head

With all eyes on Dublin and the eleven-fight ‘Unfinished Business’ card tomorrow night, it could be easy to forget that Belfast’s Ryan Burnett [15(9)-0] will also fight on Sky Sports.

The British bantamweight champion appears on the undercard of Gavin McDonnell’s WBC super bantamweight title fight with Rey Vargas at the Hull Ice Arena.

Here he will face never-been-stopped Mexican journeyman Joseafat Reyes [6(1)-7(0)-1] over eight rounds in a keep-busy bout.

This afternoon both fighters weighed in, with Burnett tipping the scales at 120lbs, while his Mexican opponent came in slightly lighter at 119.1lbs.

It is hoped that the clash tomorrow night will be Burnett’s final contest before a world title fight clash in Belfast in May, and an announcement post-fight is a possibility.
