Ricky Burns says fatherhood is going to make him even hungrier to stay a World champion, starting with a deference of his WBO World Lightweight title against Raymundo Beltran tomorrow from the SECC in Glasgow.

The Coatbridge star became a father for the first time when his wife Amanda gave birth to a boy last Thursday, and ahead of the fourth defense of his crown the 30 year old says he has a new perspective on boxing with the new arrival to Team Burns.

“I’ve always been hungry for my fights but now I have even more to fight for with my little boy,” said Burns, who scaled 134.25 lbs. “I’m fighting to give him a great start in life and it’s definitely something that will drive me on to win not just tonight, but in all my future fights.

“The timing could’ve been better, but that’s life! I’d rather the baby come a week before the fight than just after as I would’ve had the phone on all the time and waiting for the call while I’m close to making wait or ready to step into the ring. Now he’s here, I can relax knowing that after I win I’ll be going home to my new family – it’s a great thought and something totally new of course.

“It’s easy to say it now, but the build-up hasn’t been affected by the baby really. Yes, I wanted to make sure Amanda and the baby were OK but she was in great hands, and I would probably have got on her nerves if I’d been around. It was a really long labour – two days basically – so she was really tired of course but I’m sure she’d agree that it’s worth it and we’ve got a beautiful little boy now.

“We haven’t decided on names yet, Amanda thought it was going to be a girl so it’s going to be baby Burns until we get a name sorted!”
