Photos: Crawford Ends Ricky Burns' Reign Mega Gallery

Terrence Crawford beat Ricky Burns on points to take over the WBO lightweight title in Glasgow on Saturday night. Crawford won 115-112 on two cards and 115-111 on the third after an irresistible performance in a fight to remember. Burns, boxing at home in front of his local supporters, was simply outclassed by the southpaw challenger, who retained his undefeated record, winning his 24th professional bout.

Burns, whose record dipped to 36-3-1, including 11 wins inside the distance, was unable to match Crawford for speed, accuracy and power. The 30-year-old Burns had been involved in nine previous title fights; some of them gruelling encounters. It showed. His 26-year-old opponent, from Omaha in Nebraska, had the edge in every department.

[QUOTE=mathed;14285793]I think Burns could fight on HBO or Showtime and still win most of the fights, he just won't beat Crawford, Vazquez or Beltran[/QUOTE] You left out a lot of people, but nobody else wants to go to Scotland and…
