Burnett enjoying Hatton masterclass

Belfast's latest boxing prospect Ryan Burnett says he is learning from the best with former world champion Ricky Hatton in his corner.

The 21-year-old enjoyed his first fight in his home city in four years at the weekend, stopping Slovakian opponent Elemir Rafael in a low-key return in front of family and friends.

Burnett, a former Youth Olympics goal medallist, said the knowledge Hatton was passing on would be invaluable as he embarked on a professional career.
