Ricky Burns is Ready if Adrien Broner Comes Calling

Ricky Burns could be on a collision course with the man who looks to be one of the biggest current threats to his status as the best super-featherweight in the world, Adrien Broner.

Of his 21 straight wins, 17 have come by stoppage, and nearly half of those in the first round.

His recent run of good form culminated in a three minute stoppage of former world title challenger Jason Litzau.

But Burns is unlikely to be fazed by the threat emanating from across the pond.

The Scotsman is on of the UK's most improved fighters, and seems to be growing into his status as a world champion with every fight.

Nearing his peak at 28, Burns has realistic ambitions of becoming Scotland's most successful ever world champion, with the record number of defences currently held by Scott Harrison firmly in his sights.

Whether he fights Broner is a mute point - although he is WBO number one, Burns may prefer a unification match up with South Africa's Ring champion Mzonke Fana.

[QUOTE=Tmann400;10935214]That's if Burns even makes it to the final bell, which in my opinion wont happen. He's never fought anyone close the caliber of Broner in my honest opinion.[/QUOTE] And Broner has never fought for a world title with 15…
