Stick with Billy. It wasn't so long ago most people reckoned Burns was a gritty domestic contender at best. Five years on, he's in the top 3 in the world at 135, most probably.
I'd go with that except I think the last part is partly down to Alex sticking by Ricky when he was drifting in the eyes of the boxing public.
Maybe Billy will put me right but I always felt Ricky would stay loyal to Alex.
