Ricky Burns Ready For a Tough Fight With Joseph Laryea

Ricky Burns will face tough African Joseph Laryea in the next defence of his WBO super-featherweight title.

No date or venue have been confirmed for the fight, but it is likely to take place in Glasgow in March.

Laryea will be no stranger to Scottish fight fans after an impressive win over young gun Paul Appleby last time out.

He picked up the WBO Intercontinental title with a split decision victory, although looked good value for the win.

On the same night, Burns won a landslide decision against Andreas Evensen, successfully defending the title he won against Roman Martinez in September 2010.

Promoter Frank Warren confirmed Laryea in his latest column for The Sun newspaper.

If this is considered a "tough fight," Ricky is in big trouble if any of the decent featherweights move up. 130 is ridiculously weak if this is a "tough" title fight

This will be an interesting one. Laryea defeated Ricky's countryman Appleby in his last fight.
