Ricky Burns-Ray Beltran Terms Reached For September 7

By Rick Reeno

Steve Feder, the manager of lightweight contender Raymundo Beltran (28-6, 17KOs), has advised BoxingScene.com that a deal has been reached to face WBO champion Ricky Burns (36-2, 11KOs) on September 7th in Scotland.

"The fight is on, September 7th in Scotland. Ray is real excited about this opportunity and looking forward to it," Feder told BoxingScene.com.

In his last fight out, Burns struggled with mandatory challenger Jose Gonzalez, who quit with a claimed hand injury after nine rounds. As they entered the tenth round, Gonzalez was up 87-84 on all three of the official cards.

Beltran is currently on a very good run with wins over Hank Lundy and Jo-Hoon Kim in 2012. He dominated Alejandro Rodriguez in a stay-busy fight in April.

Good fight. There's not too many other fighters that deserve a title shot more than Beltran. Im not sure he'll be able to do enough to get a decision in Scotland, unless Burns looks like he did in his last…
