Vazquez: No Remorse When I Take Ricky Burns Apart!
By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star
MIGUEL VAZQUEZ is planning to hit the target against Ricky Burns – just like fellow Mexican Javier Hernandez.
IBF world lightweight champion Vazquez meets WBO belt holder Burns at Wembley Arena on March 16.
He wants to emulate Manchester United striker Hernandez, who scored his 47th goal for United in Monday’s FA Cup win over Reading.
Both sportsmen come from Guadalajara and Vasquez is a great fan of the United player, saying: “He is a hero in Mexico.
“When I fight Burns, I will be just like Hernandez – a cold and ruthless assassin. There will be no remorse when I’m taking Burns apart.
“I saw Hernandez scoring on Monday and I said that is what I have to be like to beat Burns.
“A striker and a boxer have the same mindset. A striker has to have the killer instinct to score whenever the opportunity arises, the boxer to land a knockout punch. When the opening comes against Burns that will be the end for him.”
Vazquez isn’t worried about facing Burns, who destroyed rival Kevin Mitchell in four rounds last time out.
Vazquez was the first man to beat hammer-hitting Breidis Prescott after the Colombian destroyed Amir Khan inside a round.
He added: “Burns is a good fighter. He is strong, he has good skills and he knocked out Kevin Mitchell, which was impressive.
“But he has never faced a fighter like me before. I’m unbeaten as a world champion at lightweight.
“I beat a huge puncher in Prescott and he didn’t hurt me. I don’t see how Burns can hurt me at all.
“I will be Burns’ worst nightmare. I’m coming for his world title, his title is as good as mine.”
I think Vazquez has a [I]very[/I] good chance of beating Burns. I'm going to ask a question, and hope I don't get killed for it. How do Mexican fans of the sport like his style? The reason why I ask,…Comment by gquezvas on 02-24-2013
[QUOTE=feroth;13074109]I don't understand what anyone sees in Vasquez...in reality both Vasquez and Burns are pretty bad fighters. Broner is calling Burns out cuz its an easy fight with big money, he can just go to his backyard and rip him…Comment by wizard king on 02-24-2013
[QUOTE=the_kid_08;13074509]Who has Vasquez actually beat? A close s.d vs Breidis Prescott is his best win! Burns wins this by wide decision, his footwork, size and power will win the day[/QUOTE] Just shut up clown you can atleast watch the dam…Comment by Jubei on 02-24-2013
Vazquez got this, but it will be extremely hard to convince the judges in the UK. I guess he needs to win at least 9 rounds to get a draw. Will Broner still fight Burns if he gets a fishy…Comment by rey guey on 02-24-2013
