He normally down plays anything so for him to actually go in to depth about the situation, I think it says something.

Phil Goodland of the BBC had reported that it was not clear whether Burn’s title “will be on the line now that the challenger Jose Ocampo has pulled out.”

The fight was scheduled to be the third title defense of Burns against the 23 year old Ocampo who is ranked No. 14 in the world.

Ocampo was a late replacement for original challenger Liam Walsh who had to pull out after being injured in a car crash.

Although BBC Sports reported that it was not known why Ocampo pulled out Gello-ani told ***********.com/Manila Standard “they feel that Ocampo may be affected by the sudden death of his trainer. The cancellation is not confirmed. I contacted them asking for our tickets because Ocampo ready and rearing to fight for the title. He is in great shape.”

The 50 year old Danny Bactol collapsed and died of a heart attack while watching Ocampo train on the heavy bag after Bactol did the punch-mitts with him last Thursday.

Gello-ani told us that Ocampo “had vowed to do his best to win the title in a fight he would dedicate to his fallen trainer.”
Very curious. Bit of a low move if true. If the lad wants to fight then let him.

Said it months back, Ricky Burns doesnt need W-arren, and if he wants to get some rep in big fights, he'd be better of going elsewhere, he has been stagnating for a while.....this whole situation aint helping it. The top dogs at the weight arent looking twice at Ricky because of the fights he is being made to fight in. A neutral looking in would just assume Ricky is fighting domestic level.

W-arren has a few other fighters of importance, so Ricky doesnt get the attention he deserves. If I was Ricky I'd get myself over to Hennessey and on Channel 5. He has the right personality and likeability to be on terrestrial television. He can use it as a stop gap, and it would do him and his image the world of good IMO.

This could be a long term blessing for Ricky.
Hopefully The Tall Man will sniff around with an offer now,but I still think it would take something major for Alex Morrison to drop his pal as promoter.

I really do feel sorry for Burns, you can tell he's frustrated and rightly so, now's the time to do something about it, the ball is in his court, if he continues this way and with certain management then he is his own worst enemy and deserves no sympathy.

There is a point when enough is enough.

Fair play Bill, I thought you would be gloating cos it looks like the Broner fight is farther away than ever after this Frank fiasco. Still maybe think its a bit early to totally turn on Frank though, sometimes promoters have a tough time with pull-outs. I havent read the Frank responce in another thread yet, but just thought I would put this in anyway.
