Burns can't make 135 (in a healthy manner) anymore...

Comment by Urtain on 09-09-2019

It seems they have similar size and I think Lee Selby is too skilled for Burns and last one's power is not something to worry about. I consider it should be a win for Selby, and they pay nice odds…

Hate both guys, and yet... I think this fight could steal the show!

Selby was champion at featherweight not lightweight
