Ricky Burns Rejects Any Talk of Being Distracted in Camp

WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns insists the impending birth of his first child will not distract him from his latest title defence.

The Coatbridge boxer and wife Amanda are due to become parents any day now but the excitement will not derail him from his fight against Raymundo Beltran at the SECC in Glasgow on September 7.

Burns said: "The baby is due at any time now but it's not been a distraction.

"Amanda was working until a couple of weeks ago and has only just gone on maternity leave really, the due date was last Friday so it could be any time now.

"Obviously we don't want it too close to the fight but things are looking good and Amanda and the baby are both fine which is great.

"The midwife told Amanda recently that she was quite low-maintenance and I agree.

"She's just got on with it and it's been great, and I just can't wait to meet him or her.

"It's dragging on a bit, the baby is healthy so it's just a waiting game and we're getting a bit impatient - and I'll be playing the waiting game again in the fight week to get in the ring to face Beltran."
