RICKY BURNS insists he has no intentions of quitting as he eyes up another world-title shot in 2014.

The Scottish lightweight, 30, lost his WBO title to Terence Crawford on Saturday night.

Crawford claimed a unanimous points win over Burns to hand the two-weight world champion his first defeat in seven years.

Burns is keen for a rematch with the slick switch-hitting American but promoter Eddie Hearn is likely to send his man down a different path.

The Scot would have to go to America to take on Crawford but Hearn wants his man to fight in Glasgow again in June.

That could then set up a world-title shot against IBF champ Miguel Vazquez or another of the main belt holders late in 2014.

Burns said: “I’d love to get a rematch with Terence Crawford and fight him in America.

“If I don’t get a rematch with Terence I will chase another world title.

“There are a lot of winnable fights out there and they won’t be as tricky as Terence.

“I will be back, this is just a setback. There are some big fights out there for me.”

Burns felt the judges’ scorecards were too much in favour of Crawford owing to what happened in his last fight against Raymundo Beltran.

The Scot earned a controversial draw against Beltran in September after breaking his jaw earlier in the fight.

Crawford was a clear winner with all three judges giving him the fight by wide margins with scores of 116-112, 117-111 and 116-112.

Burns added: “I did think it was a lot closer than the judges had it. It was going to go against me because of the judging in the last fight. But the better man won.”

I think Burns may have had his run at that level to be honest. Maybe he can rebuild and find a bit of success in another route or whatever but something tells me he is done at that level. His new reluctance to get hit is his main problem from what I can see. Vs Crawford he had that look abou...

[QUOTE=daggum]burns has looked terrible in his last 3 fights. i think its safe to say he burned himself out....[/QUOTE] I'm glad YOU said that.

I am a fan and have been of both Burns and Crawford but no one is clamouring for a rematch for obvious reasons. And Vasquez would outbox Burns. I dont think Burns beats Abril either. He is kind of stuck right now. Between Crawford, Vasquez, and Abril, we have some serious pure boxers at 135. They...

[QUOTE=Doctor_Tenma]For me personally I think he regressed as a fighter, he used to be more consistent with his offense, his coordination was a lot better, didn't throw nearly as wide as he does now. It's rare to see fighters regress like that but that's what I see so far. Against Crawford howeve...
