Ricky Burns-Terence Crawford Set For Feb. in Glasgow

Ricky Burns (36-2-1, 11KOs) will return to the ring in February to face Terence Crawford (22-0, 16KOs).

The WBO lightweight champion has not fought since his jaw was broken during a twelve round draw with Raymundo Beltran back in September. An immediate rematch with Beltran was ruled out when the WBO ordered Burns to take on mandatory challenger Crawford in a fifth defense of the belt.

And Burns' promoter Eddie Hearn has now reached an agreement with Crawford's promoter, Top Rank. The fight was recently ordered to have a purse bid.

Hearn tweeted: "Delighted to confirm we have agreed terms for Ricky Burns to face Terence Crawford in Glasgow in February - date confirmed soon."

Burns tweeted: "For everyone asking, I have to fight Crawford first as he's mandatory! Going to be a great fight!!"

I like the hype Crawford has been getting - it'll mean i'll get better odds when Burns wins.
