BURNETT MEETS SETTOUL FOR WBC INTERNATIONAL BELT IN MANCHESTER

Dream night for Belfast Bantamweight on February 27

Ryan Burnett will face Anthony Settoul for the vacant WBC International Bantamweight title at the sold-out Manchester Arena on February 27th

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 the 23 year old wants the fans to raise the roof as he looks to add another title to his growing list.

“I cannot wait to perform in front of a sold-out crowd with so many fans coming over from Belfast,” said Burnett. “The atmosphere is going to be electric and that’s going to lift me to a career-best performance. This is a massive opportunity for me to impress on a huge occasion, and while I know Settoul will be coming over to spoil the party, there’s no way I will let him.”

“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.”

The show will be live on Sky Sports Box Office.
