Ricky Burns: The Pain in My Jaw Was Unbelievable
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

Ricky Burns retained his WBO lightweight title after a controversial draw against Raymundo Beltran at the SECC in Glasgow. The 30-year-old Coatbridge fighter, making his fourth defence of his belt, was floored in the eighth round of a contest he never really looked like he was winning.

But one judge gave Burns the verdict by 115-112, another gave it to Beltran by 115 -113 and there was an audible gasp inside the arena when it was announced the third judge had scored it 114 each, with even the champion, who apparently dislocated his jaw in the second round, looking apologetic.

"I knew it was close. I was trying to stick to my jab but I think he could see that my jaw had gone, he came in with swinging hooks," Burns told Sky Sports. "I've never been so worried as in that fight at being caught on the jaw again, the pain was unbelievable. I'm just so disappointed because it happened so early. I hope we can just get this jaw sorted and me and Raymundo can do it again."

"I wanted to put on a better performance. Throughout that fight I was more concentrating on not getting my jaw hit, getting in close and tying him up, trying to stop him from hitting me. The knockdown, I take my hat off him it was a good shot, but it was more of a flash knockdown and it proves I can take a good shot."

There is no doubt that Burns is an amazingly conditioned warrior, but he had no answer to Beltran. He just walked through him and didn't look more than formulaic himself. Burns was wide open for hooks all night. Where does he go from here though? I assume he left Warren for Matchroom for the big...
