Default Re: Ricky burns in training for his next fight

Big Burns fan as I love the way he's gone from a talented fighter lacking confidence to a world champ but his promoter is ruining his career much like he is Cleverlys.

I'm sure when they actually step up and win, he'll say he guided them right all along. In truth, they will still be fuming like Calzaghe and Hatton that it all took way too long to get the defining fight.

Let us not forget the 3 most disgraceful title defences you have ever seen at 130 pounds. Its all about wasting time, riding that gravy train and avoiding defining fights like Broner at 130 and now 135. After a positive Moses fight, he took a step down in Mitchell and then another step down in Walsh (though thankfully this never came off). It's about going UP in levels not DOWN.
