RYAN BURNETT beat Lee Haskins to become the new IBF bantamweight champion on Saturday (June 10).

Burnett sustained bad cut, after a clash of heads. But boxing with his hands low he still caught Haskins with power punches to come through after 12 rounds at the Odyssey in his Belfast hometown.

Judges Jerry Jakubco and Dave Parris saw it widely for Burnett and agreed on 119-107. But the decision was split and Clark Sammartino caused consternation with his card, scoring 118-108 for Haskins.
