    Yea his performance against Indongo was bad, but he was not as his best weight class either.

    I think he has gotten over the jaw issie now though, I don't really see a problem with this fight at all to be honest. If Burns loses and badly then he will have to drop down a level or call it a day, if he wins he puts himself right back into the mix.

    Burns isn’t winning...it’s a terrible fight because he’s a shadow of his former self.

    Linares has been knocked out 5 times and tasted the canvas on numerous occasions, not by KO artists either. This is winnable, obviously it's lose-able too, Linares has largely been a classy operator throughout his career so this is by no means an easy fight. Whilst Burns doesn't have KO power he can win this, I really hope he does and the two of them can then retire having had fantastic careers. Jorge will always be King Jorge and Ricky, well, he's a credit to the sport.

    Reports are saying Linares is fighting in Japan in September so Linares vs Burns is probably OFF.

    Heard rumours of some undercard fights which were not great TBH -- pity though as would have been good for Scotland to have Matchroom back again

    I know Linares has lost a few recently by KO but he still is a level above Burns.

    I think it’ll be a similar fight Linares had vs Corolla he’ll just outclass him to a points decision.

    Eddie should do the right thing and make Ritson/Burns.

    Lewis beats Ricky, remember Ricky’s lightweight and Lewis super lightweight

    Ricky won’t fight Ritson or Cordina or anyone like that. He wants to cash out against a decent name. I don’t think he’s willing to let his legacy be tarnished by a prospect.
