I'll conquer World: Ryan


Ryan Burnett insists he will fulfil his dream of becoming World champion when he challenges IBF bantamweight king Lee Haskins at Belfast's SSE Arena on June 10.

The unbeaten former British champion will be taking a major step up in class when he faces Haskins but has no doubt that he can rise to the occasion.

"I always dreamed of headlining in Belfast and now I have the opportunity to do it for a World title," said Burnett. "Lee is very good but I know he hasn't fought anyone like me before and what I bring to the table."
