Ryan Burne looks set to defend his British bantamweight title before he moves on to World level.

The Belfast bantamweight was ordered to face Paul Butler, but the Liverpool fighter has withdrawn from purse bids for a fight that always seemed highly unlikely.

But it now seems Burnett will take on recent European champion as the pair have been ordered to fight by the end of the year.
