Burns-Vazquez Clash in Serious Jeopardy Over Money

By Miguel Rivera

According to sources in Mexico, there are serious issues with the lightweight unification between Ricky Burns (35-2, 10KOs) and Miguel Vazquez (33-3, 13KOs), scheduled to headline a very big show on March 16th at Wembley Arena in London. Reportedly Vazquez and his management never agreed to the financial terms of the fight. One source told BoxingScene.com that Vazquez's management had requested a certain purse figure for their boxer to travel over and fight Burns in the UK, but that number has yet to be met. With the date being less than a month away, some of the involved parties in Mexico believe the fight will fall apart.
