Ryan Burnett has been added to Mark Dunlop’s ‘Back to the Future’ card on Saturday, November 22 in the Devenish Complex, Finaghy Road North. This latest MHD Promotions card sees the cream of Belfast’s young crop of talent enjoying another run-out as they chase title opportunities. In the headline attraction Dee Walsh takes on Terry Maughan for the vacant Irish light-middleweight title and Olympic Youth gold medallist Burnett has bagged a spot on the undercard.
Burnett has amassed a 4-0 (3 KOs) record thus far as a professional and takes part in his first fight of 2014 under the guidance of new trainer and manager Adam Booth who has handled David Haye throughout his long and illustrious career. Often touted as a potential future star of Irish boxing, Burnett is only 22 and still has plenty of time to fulfill his vast potential.
Fresh from a raucous evening on October 4 some familiar faces will be returning to action on the next Devenish show. Paul Hyland Jnr, James Fryers, Gerard Healy, Alan Donnellan, Darren Cruise and Michael McKinson will all feature. James Tennyson and Daniel McShane are not involved and will both box again next year.
In the main event talented Belfast mover Dee Walsh gets a move up in class against Nottingham’s Terry Maughan who boxes out of the Carl Greaves stable. Here’s how Greaves broke news of the fight on Twitter.
