Ricky Burns Begins The Road Back, Now Light Training

WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns has been given the green light to resume training after suffering a broken jaw.

The Coatbridge fighter reported progress in his recovery on his official Twitter account, less than four weeks after his injury in his latest title defence.

Burns underwent surgery to insert a titanium plate after Raymundo Beltran inflicted a clean break of the Scot's jaw early in their world title bout on September 7.

Burns wrote: "Was at hospital last week and jaw's getting there, can resume light training but still no boxing for a few weeks. Going nuts here! Haha"

Promoter Eddie Hearn cast doubt on the 30-year-old's boxing future in the aftermath of the operation but Burns' manager, Alex Morrison, soon insisted his charge would fight on and hoped to give a rematch to Beltran.

Burns controversially retained his belt after the judges declared the Glasgow fight a draw to the disgust of the Mexican and his camp.

[QUOTE=MDPopescu]Burns (with his jaw broken early) should have quit -- but Highlanders never quit... Unfortunately is likely that Burns will never fight again at a top level...[/QUOTE] Well they're going to offer Beltran the rematch. Matchroom have already contacted Top Rank about the fight. ...

It's a good thing he ducked Broner. Twice.
