Success for Belfast pro boxer

Rebekah Valero-Lee morson news


Ryan Burnett, the 21 year-old debutant boxer, celebrated recently as he fought his way to victory in just 74 seconds against opponent, Laszlo Nemesapati Jr at the Olympia in Liverpool.

Ryan was sponsored by Morson Group, and proudly wore the company baseball cap whilst posing for photos following his win against the Hungarian boxer, Nemesapati Jr.

Burnett, who is trained by four-time world champion Ricky Hatton, boxed coolly in the opening seconds before hurting the visitor with a barrage of shots and then finishing things with the type of left hook to the ribs that ‘The Hitman’ himself would have been proud of.

“We had a game plan to take it easy and see how things were, but things quickly opened up,” Ryan, 21, said.

“I could see his arms up around his shoulders so I thought I’d sink a good body shot in and it was picture perfect.

“I was praying for him to get back up because I wanted to fight some more, but he couldn’t and unfortunately that’s the way it is.

“Now I just can’t wait for the next one.”

Ricky Hatton said: “I’ve always thought very highly of Ryan and tonight he backed up the praise I’ve been giving him.

“We’re not going to get carried away because the fights are going to get a lot tougher. He’s a 21-year-old lad that’s had a lot on his plate in the last 12 months and he’s kept it together, kept in the gym and put on a stunning performance.

“He had class in abundance, he did everything I told him in the corner and put his punches together in little over a minute.”

An announcement on Ryan’s second pro fight will be made in the next few weeks, and everyone at Morson Group wishes him success in his upcoming events.
