Problem with boxing is that you are only as good as your last fight.
Remember how DeGale sparkled when he beat P Smith and Groves was put down and hurt by K Anderson and many felt DeGale was going to stop Groves.

They both seem good world champs though Ricky has a better resume to me at this time

This.

Burns is a world class fighter and has proved that, can you really say the same about Cleverly?

Hard to seperate them.

But i'd say Burns by a whisker.

Both of them really need to step it up to World level.

Burns is the obvious choice but he hasn't really beaten anyone. I'd say Bellew is a better fighter than Mitchell, though to be fair to Burns, he easily beat Mitchell whereas Cleverely scraped by Bellew.

I'd go for Burns but neither have done themselves any justice since picking up a world title, thanks to Frank.

Burns is way more proven, forget the shitters he's fought, the Martinez fight was a good win and so was Katsidis and to an extent Mitchell and Moses.

Cleverly was handed the belt and his two best win's are Murat/Bellew, and he can consider himself lucky that he got the nod in the Bellew fight.

Cleverly hasn't proved **** all at world level and that's a harsh fact.

Risky Burns has beaten Roman Martinez, Michael Katsidis, Paulus Moses and Kevin Mitchell.

It isn't hard to choose and he hardly needs to "step it up a level" - he's a world class lightweight who is getting better.

Yep, Burns by a mile, he may not have any real world class wins, but Moses, Katsidis and Mitchell are all decent wins. This probably won't be popular but regardless of how the fights went I think Mitchell is a better win than Bellew anyway.
