Robert Smith says Ryan Burnett-Lee Haskins judge 'wont be back'

Adam Booth

It was beyond freaky, as the scores of 119-107, 119-107 were read out for Burnett, and 118-108 for Haskins.

A judge who wrongly called Lee Haskins the victor against Ryan Burnett will never again officiate in the United Kingdom, according to British boxing's top administrator.

Eddie Hearn has revealed the judge who farcically scored Lee Haskins the victor against Ryan Burnett had mistaken the two fighters' identities.

Eddie Hearn later claimed Sammartino had confused the two fighters and called on the split decision to be amended in the IBF records.

As promising as Ryan Burnett undoubtedly is, it is probable that he has never fought a boxer like Lee Haskins before.

"I haven't had a world champion after only 17 pro fights who's performed like that".

"It's going to be a hostile crowd but truthfully it doesn't bother me", he told BBC Sport.

'100 per cent' willing to testify over Comey conversations
The president's lawyer has hinted the ousted lawman should be prosecuted for the leak. He also called Comey a " leaker ", a day after the hearing.

Promoter Hearn said: "Apparently the judge asked one of the photographers, "Which one's Lee Haskins?' and the photographer said "In the red corner".

"I think he asked him a couple of times, and I presume he thought, "The red shorts".

The 25-year-old then continued the sharp and exceptional performance he had threatened from the opening bell, outclassing and outpointing the proven champion at Belfast's Odyssey Arena and potentially ending the underrated Haskins' career at world level. "I haven't fought anyone as good as Lee Haskins but, with that challenge, comes the best Ryan Burnett". His scorecard was excellent: it was just the wrong way around.

"I'm always learning with every fight and every day in the gym with Adam. It'll be a unanimous decision, it must be".

Burnett won nine of his first 11 fights by stoppage leading many to believe that he was one of the heaviest hitting fighters in the division, but as the quality of his opposition has increased, the early finishes have halted.

"Everything with David Haye, at cruiserweight, heavyweight, and Andy Lee at middleweight, it's all special, but there's something about what Ryan has achieved: I'm pretty sure I'll never see that again with a fighter after only 16 pro fights".
