Lightweight titlist Ricky Burns recently held a public media day as he prepares for his next bout and latest title defense, which will take place next weekend. Right here, you’ll find a few videos from the event, with action of Burns training in the gym, and video interviews with Burns, and his trainer Billy Nelson.
Nelson had plenty of interesting things to say, including his firm belief that Burns would defeat Adrien Broner, even at 140 lbs. That’s still a fight that a lot of people are interested in seeing.
Meanwhile, Burns is keen on a potential lightweight unification match in Glasgow, but first he has to get through Jose Gonzalez. So he has his eyes on the prize still and is ready to get out there and perform after a lot of unfortunate fight cancellations, delays and rumors, but no in-ring action.
Enjoy the footage and the interviews with Ricky Burns and his trainer, and keep on checking back for more updates during the fight week lead up to the bout.
