Re: Ricky Burns opponent
Craney - what the hell are you talking about, Burns being domestic level?
Domestic means you only fight people from your own shores. With Katsidis and Moses he beat two former world champions/challengers comfortably. Mitchell was rated at 4 by the Ring magazine, he's a quality lightweight who beat the European champion - Murray.
Burns has three good wins well above domestic level at lightweight. Stop kidding yourself, you have to fight a top three fighter in your division to establish yourself as world class?
Would you by that reasoning say Broner is not world class as he has not fought anyone anywhere near the top three, in any weight?
In fact, Broner's best win was a scrappy, close points against Ponce De Leon, a natural featherweight.
If you, honestly, do not believe Ricky Burns is a world class fighter, I cannot take you seriously.
