RICKY BURNS knows he has a point to prove when he fights Terence Crawford in defense of his WBO world lightweight title.The Scot, 30, will take on mandatory challenger Crawford at the SECC in Glasgow on March 1.

Burns is making the fifth defence of his belt, but has come dangerously close to losing it in his two most recent bouts.

He suffered a broken jaw in his last fight against Raymundo Beltran that controversially ended as a draw.

And previous opponent Jose Gonzalez was well ahead on the scorecards before the Puerto Rican was forced to retire with a broken hand.

Burns said: “I’ve had two bad performances and we’ve made a few changes and some adjustments.

“We’re going to be doing things differently, and fingers crossed that we see a new Ricky Burns on March 1.”

Crawford by UD so clear the judges can't rob him.

Hope Ricky can fight 1/2 tune ups to get back in top condition, then face the best in his division
