Tonight, at the SSE Arena, in Belfast, Lee Haskins will make the third defence of his IBF bantamweight world title.

The Bristol fighter will be taking on the unbeaten Ryan Burnett in the challengers own backyard of Belfast.

But Haskins remains confident that he can hang on to his belt and catch the ferry back to the UK with the IBF belt still in his possession.

Talking to the media ahead of what could be a cracking fight, Lee has remarked to the media,

‘When I feel like I have a 50-50 fight in front of me, I put a lot extra into the training and I want it more.

‘I’ve got a great opponent in front of me. This is a 50-50 fight.

‘Before I even knew I was fighting him I thought: ‘He’s a fantastic fighter and one to watch in the future’.

‘I’ve had an amazing time in camp. I’m happy, in a great place. I’ve a great family and I want to keep providing for them, and the best way to do that is obviously by winning.’

Can Haskins hang on to his IBF belt or is tonight the night it changes hands?
