RYAN BURNETT eased back into world title contention with an impressive performance against Jelbirt Gomera at the Ulster Hall on May 17.

The former unified world champion lost his WBA bantamweight title after a freak back injury forced him out of his World Boxing Super Series quarter-final with Nonito Donaire in November.
