WBO super featherweight champion Ricky Burns may be on the verge of vacating his title for a move to the lightweight division. Contrary to numerous reports stating that Burns is traveling to the United States to face mandatory challenger Adrien Broner on November 26th - Burns' manager, Alex Morrison, appeared on BBC Radio and said the fight is in doubt because Burns is having issues with making the weight.  

"My worry is Ricky making the weight," explained Morrison. "It gets more difficult for fighters to keep making the 9st, 4lbs [130-pounds] as they get older. Ricky is now 28 and it was always the plan for him to move up to lightweight."

"Look at Alex Arthur and the problems he had with making his mark. It was a big factor in Scott Harrison's downfall too. I've spoken to [promoter Frank] Warren about my concerns and he agrees with me. Money isn't everything"

"Nothing is signed or sealed [to face Broner] but I am advising him against the fight. Ricky is on the verge of taking my advice and saying no. I would like him to relinquish the [super featherweight] belt and move up to win a second world title."

If he cant make the weight and be comfortable then he should move up. I cant see the problem here. He is going to give up a world title and move to a division with way more talent where it will be harder to get a title.
