Zhakiyanov was still an ever present aggressor who was game to meet Burnett head on at every turn, which made for a very competitive ebb and flow to the action.

However as Burnett increasingly started to find more and more distance between him and Zhakiyanov, he started to take over the fight by dominating the exchanges. Burnett initiated and ended much of the action and the blows seemed to be beginning to take a toll on his older foe, Burnett’s crisp left hook to the body contributing towards Zhakiyanov notably tiring down the stretch of the fight.

Burnett then began to play to his home crowd and oozed class and conveyed this confidence to the crowd as he began to score repeatedly with shots thrown from the waist while also landing his signature uppercut at will.

Burnett attempted to step on the gas to try and seek out a late stoppage as he looked to exploit the fact, youth and energy was on his side. However, it just wasn’t to be as each blow Burnett sent toward Zhakiyanov was dismissed with a steely faced resolve as he remained resilient to the final bell.
