London’s Nicky Cook will face Scotland’s Ricky Burns for Ricky’s WBO super-featherweight title at Liverpool’s ECHO Arena on July 16th.  ‘Cookie’, 30-2 (16), made his return to the ring at the O2 Arena, London on Saturday night, scoring a six round point’s win over Youssef Al Hamidi to set up the showdown with Burns.

Although not ranked in the WBO top fifteen at the weight, Cook is a former holder of their 130lb crown; the WBO’s championship committee will have taken this into consideration when deciding to sanction the contest, which is now listed amongst their forthcoming title bouts.

The 31-year-old fighter had been linked with a move into lightweight title waters.  However, he now has an opportunity to take his former belt from the 31-2 (8) titlist.

Burns sucks dick. Can't wait until he's forced to face someone half-decent.

I'm sorry but this is a joke. Evensen after the Martinez fight was fine. Laryea was not really, but there was promise of a unification fight with Fana afterwards so I accepted it. Now Cook, coming off a two year lay-off and 6 round win against a journeyman is just not acceptable. When will Frank ...

[QUOTE=Patty Tanager]Pathetic really. Burns has fought nothing but total scrubs since winning the title.[/QUOTE] yeah its been disappointing to say the least. Was hoping he'd try to unify like he said he would
