WBA Super World bantamweight champion Ryan Burnett (19-0, 9 KOs) has picked former four division world champion Nonito Donaire (38-5, 24 KOs) for his quarter-finals match in the World Boxing Super Series (WBSS) tournament in September or October.
In an interesting move, Burnett and Donaire ate dinner together after the selection process by Ryan. That was an unusual move by the 26-year-old Burnett. If it helps him win the fight, then perhaps it was worth it. Burnett needs to start thinking of a good plan for him to take away Donaire’s offensive fire power, because right now the fight does not look like a good style match-up for him. Donaire is smart, experienced, fast and powerful.
