According to promoter Alex Morrison, Ricky Burns will not defend his WBO lightweight title this coming Saturday after the involved parties failed to find a late replacement for him. Burn had been due to take on Jose Ocampo at the Excel Arena only for the challenger to pull out following the recent death of his trainer. British lightweight champion Derry Matthews was being pursued as a possible replacement.

Morrison told STV: "Ricky will not fight this weekend. We couldn't find an opponent for him to fight. He was offered a 10-round fight but decided not to take it. We're now looking at January 26 for the next title defence and hopefully that will take place in Glasgow. Ricky has taken a week off and then he will return to training. He's philosophical about it, it's just a sequence of events and these things happen."

He's not going to fight Broner in January and it won't happen for a year at least. Since his move to lightweight, he's only been progressing and hasn't really taken any big steps back like he did at SFW. He should target someone like Beltran/Estrada for his next fight.

[QUOTE=D-MiZe]Quit the talk of Broner-Burns for another few fights at least. Burns isn't on that level yet and needs to be given good match-ups otherwise when that time comes, he'll be clueless.[/QUOTE] Cant agree with that, If he isnt ready now he isnt going to be ready. Problem is he b...
