Frampton vs. Quigg: Ryan Burnett Added To The Card

By Elliot Foster

Ryan Burnett has had his next fight confirmed, just over two days after his latest win.

The Belfast bantamweight (12-0, 9 KOs) won the British title last weekend at the Manchester Arena, live on Sky Sports, and he has been told that he will feature on a pay-per-view card in the new year.

Burnett, 23, has been confirmed in the first undercard slot on the same bill as the super bantamweight world title unification fight between IBF champion Carl Frampton (21-0, 14 KOs) and WBA Super champion Scott Quigg (31-0-2, 23 KOs) on February 27 at the same venue.

Having knocked down Jason Booth, the 38-year-old veteran, in the opening round of his vacant British title tilt on November 21 before cruising to a unanimous 120-107 decision on all three judges’ scorecards, the WBO European champion was told post-fight by new promoter Eddie Hearn –– with whom he signed only a month ago –– that he will be returning to the venue for the third fight on the trot in the winter.

Hearn has also confirmed that Burnett will box in Belfast again, on a first Matchroom Boxing-promoted in the city for over two years, in April, 2016.
