WATCH: Ryan Burnett’s first head-to-head with Lee Haskins

Belfast was buzzing this afternoon as Sky came to town for the press conference to launch the big Matchroom bill in the city on Saturday June 10th.

North Belfast bantamweight Ryan Burnett [16(9)-0] makes the step up to world level to take on IBF champion Lee Haskins [34(14)-3(3)] at the SSE Odyssey Arena.

Burnett and Bristolian Haskins were at the Europa Hotel for the press conference and went head-to-head for a photo call afterwards.

24 year old Burnett is known for his stern stare-downs, and it was no different here.
