Editor's Viewpoint: World champ Ryan deserves a rest after post-fight scare

Editor's Viewpoint

World champion boxer Ryan Burnett had a health scare on Saturday when he was rushed to hospital after a gruelling but successful bout against Zhanat Zhakiyanov.

Following tests, including brain and CT scans at the Royal Victoria Hospital, he was released, much to the relief of his family, friends, boxing colleagues and fans.

During his very tough fight earlier, his courage and determination helped him to win through, but he is right to switch off temporarily from boxing and to spend more time now with fiancee Lara Milne and his family. Success at sport is important, but so too is knowing how to relax.
