Eddie Hearn: No Robbery, Burns-Beltran Was Close Fight

GLASGOW, Scotland -- Ricky Burns withstood a broken jaw and being knocked down by Mexican challenger Raymundo Beltran to keep his WBO lightweight title after a controversial draw on Saturday.  Burns never looked like he was winning his fourth defense of the lightly regarded title, and even he and his hometown fans were surprised when the result was announced. One judge gave it to Burns 115-112, another ruled Beltran won by 115-113, and the last scored it 114-114.

The more aggressive Beltran appeared to dislocate Burns' jaw in the second round and floored the Scot with a left hook in the eighth. The first draw in the pro career of each fighter left their records at 36-2-1 for Burns, and 28-6-1 for Beltran.

Promoter Eddie Hearn played down what many felt was a poor decision to Sky Sports.

"We may have mandatory obligations but first and foremost we need to get Ricky off to hospital," Hearn said. "The doctor confirmed a dislocated jaw and how he got through that fight is beyond me. Full credit to Raymundo and the team, I thought it was a really close fight and I thought Ricky had built up a lead and finished well after the knockdown, it was very close. We'll talk to his team, but we'll get Ricky checked out first."

Who is Beltran's promoter? Top Rank? I'm sure they can get beltran another big fight after clearly winning this. Crawford vs Beltran seems likely.

[QUOTE=bigcursedawg]it was close if you drank a half a bottle of scotch before the fight[/QUOTE] I drank a full one, it was still all Beltran.

It's funny because it happens so much that we shouldn't be surprised, but it still manages to shock and awe. Pathetic.
