Watch: Belfast Boy Ryan Burnett and Lee Haskins face-off for world title fight

Ryan Burnett rubbed his hands in anticipation as he faced off against Lee Haskins ahead of Saturday's world title fight.

The Belfast Boy is fighting champion Haskins for the IBF Bantamweight belt, which Burnett stared at before rubbing his hands together and giving an excited smile to a boisterous crowd at the Hilton Hotel, Lanyon Place.

The pair exchanged words, all smiles, as Burnett hyped up the home support.

Burnett, at 25, is eight years the champion's junior and is eager to steal the title when the pair meet at the SSE Arena on Saturday night.

Tickets are still available via Ticketmaster and the main fight is expected to start around 10pm.
