Default Re: Burns - Vasquez is OFF! 100% confirmed.

WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns' unification title fight with IBF belt-holder Miguel Vazquez -scheduled for later this month - has been postponed because the Mexican is suffering from a virus.

The pair were set to meet on 16 March at Wembley Arena - on a card which was also set to feature WBO light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly - but Vazquez's illness has forced promoter Frank ****** to push the event back a month.

The British pair will now headline the show at the same venue on Saturday, 20 April.

****** said: "It's very unfortunate that Vazquez has had to withdraw so close to the fight, but it is on medical grounds, which is beyond my control, due to his viral infection, and we have his doctor's certificate confirming this.

"Therefore I have had to postpone the fight, not cancelled as stated in some media reports, to Saturday 20th April at Wembley Arena.

"Everybody is disappointed by this postponement, but we have worked hard to ensure that Ricky's unification fight still goes ahead."

I feel bad for Burns, but I am confused by these conflicting rumours about whether the Vasquez fight is now postponed to April or outright cancelled. I am also confused about Burns lashing out at FW, it makes no sense unless there never was a deal signed, in which case why did Burns apparently not know this, as he has been going through a full formal camp? I still have hope that Burns still fights Vasquez, because unification fights still mean something, but if not, he should fight Broner. It is past time for Burns to start taking charge of his own career, and take fights that define his legacy.

It's postponed but the majority doubt it will actually happen at all. Ricky was going through a full camp from what I read. He's out of pocket by 12k due to training costs incurred.

It's terribly frustrating and doesn't look good at all. The people who have forked out hard earned money for this must feel particularly aggrieved. It's shambolic really. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next few weeks with this.

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

BORKED


- 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.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

- 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.
Wait, a Dr's note is provided on Feb 25th but he's sparring PDL March
2nd? Smells like BS to me.

So Burns only allegedly took this fight to be busy between Broner bouts and keep him away from Broner. He tried to save face by facing a decent competitor for once only for the truth that the fight was never finalized to come out.

Wow.

Vazquez literally shat his pants at the thought of fighting Burns then?

Decent blokes, ****ed over by fish eyes once again.
