By "Mr. Boxing" Giancarlo Oquendo

Promoter Eddie Hearn has made it clear that lightweight contender Jose "Chelo" González (22-1, 17KOs) had his chance on Saturday night, and blew it, and doesn't see any reason to grant him a rematch against WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns (36-2, 11KOs). Gonzalez appeared to have swept the first seven rounds, and the judges had him up 87-84 as the tenth round was about to star, but the Puerto Rican boxer indicated that he injured his left writes and couldn't continue.

Hearn does not believe Gonzalez's reason for sitting it out on the stool. He says the boxer lost his heart after Burns stood up to him.

"He did not want to continue, and I believe he also injured his heart. He had his chance," expressed Hearn.

Now Burns could return to the ring in the month of September in Scotland, and IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez has been mentioned as a possible opponent.

Very simple to comprehend, like most guys with early KO's, Chelo came in, thought he could blow out Ricky and when Plan A didn't work and he was gassed, Ricky started landing head and body shots and turned the fight around. THINK!!!!!! Round 7 was the big exchange, round 9 is where Chelo said he ...

[QUOTE=shoog]Ive never been impressed by burns, beating UK club fighters.[/QUOTE]Wow, great homework......and here I thought Rocky Martinez and Michael Katsidis were from the British isles. Yeah, that thick British accent Martinez has could fool anyone. Get a damn clue before writing.

Anyone who says Chelo wasn't hurt by the punches or they weren't taking anything out of Chelo was not in that ring being hit. Burns landed plenty of punches and the injury happened at least 2 rounds AFTER Burns pressure started breaking him and turning the fight around. Title fights are not 7 rou...
