Jose Gonzalez Falls in Line For Ricky Burns Showdown

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Puerto Rico's Jose Gonzalez (21-0, 16KOs) will be placed in the number one ranked position by the World Boxing Organization.

Gonzalez captured the WBO Latino lightweight title in June 2011 and retained the title four times.

The WBO's full lightweight champion, Ricky Burns (35-2, 10KOs), defends the title against Liam Walsh (13-0, 10KOs) on December 15th in London.

While the WBO has yet to issue a mandatory order, the organization is likely going to issue such an order after the conclusion of Burns-Walsh.

[QUOTE=D-MiZe;12645953]Did I say beating Gonzalez does anything for Burns? It's a better fight than Walsh, tenfold. If he's going to defend his title in December against someone who doesn't pose that much threat then it should've been Gonzalez and not…

[QUOTE=bigcursedawg;12645915]Beating Gonzalez proves Burns's worth? Gonzalez hasn't beat anyone of note. Its pretty much the same kind of fight against Walsh, neither one of them has the experience to have a chance against Burns. It sounds like Burns wants the…

[QUOTE=D-MiZe;12645737]If there is a God, Walsh shall be struck with an affliction which does not allow him to fight in December and is replaced by Jose Gonzalez. Time for Burns to prove his worth. :boxing:[/QUOTE] Beating Gonzalez proves Burns's worth?…
