Ryan Burnett has signed a three-year promotion deal with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing.

The Bantamweight holds an 11-0 record in the paid ranks after turning professioanl in 2013.

The Belfast man teamed up with vaunted trainer Adam Booth later in 2014 and with Hearn and Sky Sports, the 23 year old is ready to turn his undoubted potential into titles.

“I’m very happy to be signing with Matchroom,” said Burnett. “As we said a year ago, we would build me before we looked at promoters, things with Adam have gone perfectly and to plan. Now we are looking to open the doors to big things and Eddie is the man to do that very thing.

“I have an amazing team around me and now it’s all about opening the right doors and I’m 100 per cent sure with the team around me I’ll become a World champion.”

Booth said: “Ryan is the most talented fighter that I have ever worked with.

Matchroom chief Hearn added: “I have lost count of the amount of times people have told me Ryan is one of the most exciting young fighters they have ever seen.”
