Ryan Burnett will look to get his hands on the British bantamweight title on Saturday night.

The Belfast fighter faces the experienced Jason Booth for the title.

Booth has fought the likes of Scott Quigg and Kiko Martinez in a long career.

Burnett has already lifted the WBO European title and Burnett wants to win the British belt.

“You have to respect Booth as a fighter after everything he has done in his career.

“I am expecting a good fight but I think fighting against Jason it will give me a chance to show what kind of fighter I am, because I have not had that chance since I turned pro.

“And people have been hyping me, so Saturday night is a chance for me to show people that I can do what people have been saying about me. I want that title,” he added.

And after Saturday night there are exciting times ahead for Burnett as he will fight on the Carl Frampton World title clash with Scott Quigg undercard before headlining a show in Belfast in April.

“It is going to be great to get back to Belfast and bring Sky Sports back to Belfast.

“And it amazing to be such a big part of it. I am a huge fan of Carl Frampton and I would love to follow him and get Belfast behind me.”
