And speaking at his public training session in CastleCourt, Burnett was confident of victory.

"On June 10th, Belfast will see a new world champion and it's going to be Ryan Burnett," he said.

"Everything is on track. We're bringing plenty of sparring partners in, we're getting the rounds done, we're getting the fitness up. I know every fighter says that everything is going perfect but genuinely, everything is going perfect and I'm very lucky for that.

"Days like this and people saying nice things is a great experience for me.

"There was a great crowd here today showing their support and the same with ticket sales. Everything has gone better than I expected.

"Since I started working with Adam Booth, everything has got higher and higher. Eddie was always saying he was waiting for the correct fight to get me back to Belfast. He stuck to his word, he got me the correct fight and not just a fight - a world title fight and he's brought it back to Belfast. It's great for me and it's also great for Belfast."
