Ryan Burnett [16(9)-0] coasted to victory on Saturday night in Hull.

The Belfast bantamweight easily outpointed Joseafat Reyes over eight rounds at the Ice Arena, taking a 79:73 points decision.

In what was a keep-busy bout as he awaits a major title fight, the British champion took the opportunity to practice throughout, even retreating to the ropes at times so he could fight off them.
