Ricky Burns-Paulus Moses Set For March 10th Showdown

By Terence Dooley

Frank Warren Promotions have confirmed that Ricky Burns will fight former WBA lightweight champion Paulus Moses at the Braehead Arena on March 10th.  The Namibian won the WBA belt with a decision over Yusuke Kobori in January 2009, defended it successfully against Takehiro Shimada and was then knocked out by Miguel Acosta in May 2010.  The 33-year-old has racked up three wins since the Acosta defeat and holds a 28-1 (19) record.

Burns claimed the interim WBO lightweight title by out-pointing Michael Katsidis on November 5th.  The Scottish boxer is the former undefeated WBO super-featherweight title-holder and is in the form of his life.  Burns, 28, holds a 33-2 (9) slate and expects his challenger to bring his A-game over to Scotland for the clash.

BoxNation, Sky Channel 456, will televise the showdown.
