UNDEFEATED WBA ‘super’ bantamweight world champion Ryan Burnett had no fear of picking Nonito Donaire in the first quarter-final of the next season of the World Boxing Super Series.

Burnett and Donaire will be joined by WBO world champion Zolani Tete, IBF titlist Emmanuel Rodriguez and WBA ‘regular’ holder Naoya Inoue, along with Jason Moloney, Juan Carlos Payano, Mikhail Aloyan in the second season of the tournament.

Burnett was the number one ranked seed, and chose to face the former four-weight world champion Donaire. He and trainer Adam Booth see the early challenge as a positive.
