Default Burns seeks new opponent (again)

He should just postpone any fight IMO, whoever it is will be a joke and certainly not worthy of a world title fight.

Might as well keep him on the bill. Any opponent at this stage will be shit, I don't have a problem with that as long as his title isn't on the line.

We shouldnt fear, the wbo matchmaker of the year is on the case.

Looks like Derry Matthews wants the fight.

We all know why....because everybody is ducking Ricky Burns. Its clear as day.

We all know Ricky Burns smashes everybody and will continue to do so, the best fighters at the weight cant touch Ricky Burns, Broner? EASY WORK! Vazquez? EASY WORK!

Its just as simple as that. He is the best thing going, and he will beat anyone anywhere anytime. BUT, if they dont want to come to the smalltime in Scotland, and want the fight in the US because thats where the money is. I know! We will use this as fuel for our own fire....even though we said, Ricky will fight anywhere and beat anyone happily, we will still say they are scared to come to Scotland. Because it makes us look even better.

Because we love you Ricky and we will support you forever and ever, no matter what the truth is, your the best there is, best there was, and best there ever will be.

Yeah, thinking about it, this would be best all round.
I think my main problem is with undeserving folk fighting for a world title.
Well, that & every ****ing fight needing to be for a belt of some kind.
