Just wonder whether the 'big fight' might actually be a codeword for a non-title fight with a certain Mr. Scott Harrison?
Commercially, it ticks all the boxes (several times over) and Harrison is available and raring to go...stranger things have happened in boxing and Ricky needs a payday.
Governing bodies also tend to become v. flexible when a nice sanctioning fee is in the offing.
Very much a leftfield theory....but perhaps Burns v Harrison is on the cards.
if that fight is made it would be a shock , harrison has far much trouble with the courts , if i had to be pushed for a opponent i would say john murray has a good shout even though it would mean doing business with warren but i remember a interview john did and he said he wanted to jump straight for an eliminator or a title fight so it could come off or maybe hearn will bring a no named opponent with a ranking then him and rees fight in the summer
