Burns Waiting on Juan Manuel Marquez, Talking With Crolla

Ricky Burns beat Michael Katsidis last month to become interim-WBO lightweight champion and will take on a yet-to-be-named opponent on 10 March in Glasgow. The venue for that bout has not been announced but Burns' preference is clear. Kevin Mitchell, John Murray and Anthony Crolla have been mentioned as possible opponents for Burns in 2012.

"I know my manager and promoter have been talking to [Crolla's] manager, Ricky Hatton. I know he is keen to get a shot at me. I will fight anybody, I have always said that. A fight's a fight," Burns told BBC Scotland.

Juan Manuel Marquez remains the WBO lightweight champion but it is unclear if the Mexican has plans to carry on in the division or relinquish his title.

"We are still waiting to find out what he is going to do, whether he is vacating or whether he is moving back down," explained Burns. "I will take it a fight at a time. I leave it to my manager and promoter. They pick and choose who I fight. I can only fight who is put in front of me. My dream fight would be Marquez so I'll keep my fingers crossed."

i bet JMM could stop Rios just like he did a champion version of casamayor, a prime diaz and a tough as hell katsidis. rios could maybe knock JMM down but we all know that just makes him better.
