Burns has spent about 12k of his own money paying for two training camps for fights that have not happened. He's getting screwed here.

- Burns - Vazquez is announced and tickets go on sale, with no press conference featuring the opponent.

- Vazquez appears on camera in February saying there is no agreement for the fight with Burns.


- Frank issues a statement saying that the reports on forums saying the fight won't happen are false, threads on these issues where closed and the fight continues to be advertised.

- A boxing news journo confirms that on Feb 18th Vazquez told him that he is not coming over for the Burns fight as they have not agreed terms.

- On 2nd March Vazquez was in the gym sparring with Ponce De Leon.

- On 4th March the fight is confirmed as not happening, with illness cited as the reason. A doctors note dated 25th February is provided.
