Ricky Burns Eyes Adrien Broner Unification For The Spring

Ricky Burns is looking to meet Adrien Broner for a world title unification fight in the spring - but not in his next contest.

WBO lightweight champion Burns saw a scheduled defence cancelled on Saturday after both Liam Walsh and Jose Ocampo pulled out.

Promoter Frank Warren had been keen to set up unbeaten WBC champion Adrien Broner for his subsequent fight, but Burns will stick to the plan.

Manager Alex Morrison told STV: "I spoke to Ricky this morning and we decided he will not be fighting Adrian Broner in February.

"Ricky didn't want to jump from a non-event to the biggest fight of his life in a matter of weeks.

"He'll make a defence of his title in Glasgow in January and we'll look at Broner after that."

Morrison named his price for taking the Scottish boxer to the US to fight Broner.

"Ricky will fight in America if the money is right," he said.

"That's 400,000 net, after fees, after tax. We could be looking at April."

I'd like to defend Burns but I have to be honest and say Frank Warren is unlikely to let him fight Broner.

Like I said before, Burns will not fight Broner. He'll run again he wants zero part of him. If he waits and Broner beat Abril his pay goes way down. Stay fighting bums burns and let Broner unify everything else and move on... we don't need this kind of blatant ducking.
