Plenty will be on the line when Ryan Burnett and Nonito Donaire face each other for the WBA super world bantamweight title and the vacant WBA diamond bantamweight strap in the quarterfinals of the World Boxing Super Series Season Two at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland on Saturday, Nov. 3, live and exclusively on DAZN.
Northern Ireland’s Burnett (19-0, 9 KOs) will be making his second defense of his WBA super world bantamweight crown, which he captured by defeating Zhanat Zhakiyanov in October 2017. The tournament’s No. 1 seed will be looking to advance to the semifinals, where he’d face Zolani Tete. But first, the tough challenge of getting past Donaire awaits.

The 35-year-old Donaire (38-5, 24 KOs) heads into the tournament, looking to rebound from a unanimous decision loss to Carl Frampton this past April.
Burnett and Donaire have mutual respect, as the pair posted a shot of Donaire and his wife Rachel having dinner with Burnett and his girlfriend Lara after the WBSS draw this past summer. But that will change in the ring Saturday.
@ryanburnett_1 selected me as his pick. Its refreshing that we both agree this is a sport. This isn’t street fighting. There’s no need to trash talk and be a way that doesn’t align to us. Make no mistake inside the ropes we will both try to take each others head off. pic.twitter.com/nubF24LAUV
