Re: Ricky Burns ''Is a Coward''. The thoughts of two U.S Boxing fans
No fighter is a coward. Burns's team are just being smart really but unfortuntaely it isn't doing their image any good and it's difficult to stick up for fighters turning down big fights, even if it is understandable. Burns may have a chance against Broner but then he might also take a pasting, and if that's gonna happen then he wants to get as well paid as possible. The problem is that ain't gonna happen under his present promotional circumstances so Team Burns just have to live with their PR own goal in the meantime. Nelson isn't usually slow to stick up for Burns on here but it's been noticeable he's had to take this one on the chin.
