Team Burns To Ray Beltran: Rematch Only in Scotland!

Ricky Burns returned home on Monday after surgery to mend a broken jaw sustained in Saturday night's controversial WBO lightweight title fight against Raymundo Beltran, according to the champion's promoter Eddie Hearn.

The Coatbridge fighter, 30, suffered a clean break in the second round against the Mexican at the SECC in Glasgow but despite being on the back foot for much of the night he retained his belt when the judges awarded a draw.

Hearn subsequently claimed that Burns, who had titanium plates inserted in his jaw, faced a battle to recover sufficiently to box again.

However, he has revealed a picture of the boxer in a tweet which read: "Just spoke to @ricksterko - back home today. Sore but in good spirits - next few weeks are vital, fingers crossed."

Burns' manager Alex Morrison insists his fighter will be back in the ring.

He told STV: "Ricky is a bit sore but there is no doubt he will fight on.

"He will see the medical people in about two weeks and it's expected to take around six weeks for him to recover.

"I wouldn't be surprised if he was back in the gym next Monday to keep himself in shape.

"He is keen for a rematch but Beltran and his camp are in no position to pick and choose, so any rematch would be in Glasgow."

In case Burns will somehow recover, Beltran will not come to Scotland again -- there's no point in this. Burns will continue to fight in his Highlander backyard the rest of his career -- if any. So it goes.
