Billy Nelson, trainer of WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns (36-2-1, 11 KOs), wants his fighter to be "extra busy" against mandatory challenger Terrence Crawford (22-0, 16KOs). The fight is scheduled for March 1 at the Scottish Exhibition Centre in Glasgow, Scotland. Burns is returning from a controversial twelve round draw with Raymundo Beltran last September, where the Scottish fighter had his jaw badly broken.

Nelson wants his fighter to overwhelm Crawford with punches, not allowing the undefeated challenger to get started.

"I want Ricky to be in the middle of the ring, to work his jab, to dictate the distance and stop his punches and come over the top and rock his body. I want him to be extra busy and take Terence out of his comfort zone," Nelson told Sky Sports Ringside.

Burns agreed with his train, stating: "I'm going to be using my jab in this fight. A fight can won off the jab."

Goodnight Mr. Burns. You are a true warrior, no doubt at all, however, Bud will counter your slow jab with right hook or straight left and good night. 2 rounds tops.

[QUOTE=TGD]Burns has one of the best jabs in boxing. No one is going to outwork him either. I initially thought Burns was going to win on points, but I've seen him in the gym and I can't see Crawford coping with the pace and lasting the distance.[/QUOTE] For real? I would give burns his props ...

Let's see how Burns reacts when Crawford takes that jab away.
