Ryan Burnett is loving life under trainer Adam Booth and he is looking to get his hands on the British Bantamweight title in the coming months.

Burnett will fight on July 4 at the National Stadium in Dublin before facing Jason Booth in a British title eliminator in October.

The former Junior Olympic gold medal winner has amassed nine wins as a professional, with seven of these wins coming by the way of knock-out.

These are exciting times for the Belfast fighter and he says his trainer Booth is keeping him on the right track.

“I believe Adam is one of the best trainers in the world and he knows every trick in the book.

“I am fighting a guy called Csaba Kovacs on July 4 and know very little about him - but Adam will know everything because he always does his homework.

“I am looking forward to fighting again at the National Stadium and a good crowd are going to come down and cheer me on, It will be a good night - but I need the win,” he added.

After the Dublin showdown Burnett has Jason ‘Too Smooth’ Booth in his sights in a British title eliminator.

Booth has been a British and Commonwealth champion - who also fought for the European and IBF Super-bantamweight title - and Burnett says this is his breakthrough fight.

“Yes I have a British title eliminator against Jason Booth and he will show me where I am at.

“Booth has held several titles and we think we have got him at the right time.

“He has been there and done it and I will have to be on my game when we meet. I would love the British title but we are in no rush. We will just take our time and hopefully get to where we want to go,” he added.

Burnett trains in Belfast, London and Monaco and he says training for the July 4 show is going well.

“I have been home sparring against Marc McCullough and Paul Hyland jnr and now I am heading back to London for more sparring before July 4. Things are going well and I am enjoying working under Adam. I was trained by Ricky Hatton before that and they both of them work you very hard,” he added.

On the July 4 card Jamie Conlan faces Junior Granados for the WBO Inter-continental title and Tommy Langford,, Anthony Fitzgerald, Stephen Ormond,Michael Rooney, Declan Geraghty, Steve Collins Jnr and Sean Turner will also feature.
