Trainer Adam Booth believes Ryan Burnett has a huge future ahead of him after getting another win on his record at the weekend.

The Belfast bantamweight defended his WBC International bantamweight title against Cesar Ramirez in Leeds.

And Booth says he has really been impressed with Burnett since he started working with the 24 year old.

“He is developing really well as a fighter. He has plenty of weapons and the higher the opponent he faces - and when they start to let their hands go - he will start to land more of his shots.

“We haven’t seen 50 percent of the potential that he has.

“It is not his performances that are getting better, it is his understanding of all the small things that happen and how to deal with them.

“Good fighters continually make small adjustments and it is understanding what to do, when these things happen. He has that.”

And Booth was pleased with his fighter’s showing against Ramirez.

“It was a good. solid and professional performance against a tough and awkward Mexican. I was pleased with his display.

“He was able to use lots of stuff we have been working on in the gym and it is another ten rounds in the bank. These rounds will do him good when he gets up the higher levels.
