Glasgow's Willie Limond is targeting a history-making world title showdown against Ricky Burns.
Burns became Scotland's first two-weight world champion in nearly twenty years when he beat Australian great Michael Katsidis to capture the Interim WBO World title at Wembley Arena on Saturday night.
Limond takes on British Lightweight Champion Anthony Crolla on Friday 25th November at the Ravenscraig Centre in Motherwell, live on BoxNation (Sky Platform Ch. 456), but has an eye on facing Burns after.
It would be the first time two Scottish fighters have fought for a world title.
"I was really happy to see Burns beat Katsidis and I thought he put on a great performance to beat one of the world's top lightweights," said Limond.
"Of course, the big fight would be me against Burns here in Scotland which would be a barnstormer. Two Scotsmen fighting for the world title for the first time ever would be absolutely massive.
"It's given me the extra incentive to beat Crolla and win the British title to make it happen between me and Burns."
"Crolla is by no means an easy fight. I've got a lot of respect for him and it's going to be a great battle between us, but I going all out to win the title."
Tickets for Crolla v Limond, priced at £40 and £60, are available on through Morrison's Gym on 0141 554 7777 or St Andrew's Sporting Club on 0141 810 5700.
