Alex Arthur Eyes Grudge Rematch With Ricky Burns

Former WBO super-featherweight champion Alex Arthur says he wants a rematch with Ricky Burns.

Arthur beat Burns on points in a European, Commonwealth and British super-featherweight title defence five years ago.

However the boxers' fortunes have differed since then - Arthur has faded away from world level, while Burns has gone on to pick up his rival's old WBO crown.

Now Arthur wants a return, although Burns would have to vacate and move up to lightweight if the fight were to happen.

"At this point in time Ricky is super-feather champion and a really good one at that," Arthur told the Glasgow Times.

"I wouldn't have a chance in hell of making superfeatherweight now - but if Ricky was to move up to lightweight I would gladly take that on.

"Eventually he will move up because he is a big lad and it's a fight I'd love to have."

Sounds just like the kind of overmatched comp Ricky's into lately, perfect.

Hardly a "grudge" rematch, there isnt bad feeling between the fighters.
