'If It's Boxing, It's Vital'

Burns Future in Doubt!

With the furore over the Beltran v Burns decision not appearing to go the right way, this morning it would appear that might be somewhat insignificant.

Following on from having his jaw broke, as early as the second round, Burns promoter, Eddie Hearn, fears the injury could end Burns career.

Talking to the media, Hearn’s has remarked,

'He underwent surgery this morning (Sunday).”

'Everyone's talking about his next move. I can't even guarantee he'll box again at the moment.'


Further adding about the injury,

'It was a horrific injury to suffer.'

'There have been a few occasions when people have boxed on with broken jaws - I couldn't imagine anything worse - but they are extraordinary people, fighters, and he found the bravery to carry on.”

'The doctor, who doesn't know a lot about boxing, was quite astonished when I told him he had boxed for half an hour with a broken jaw.”

'He asked if he had taken any shots on it and I told him that was the understatement of the year.'


A further insight into the pain Burns must have been suffering can be seen with Hearn continuing,

'When I spoke to Beltran last night, he said he could hear him almost crying in clinches where the heads were going in on the jaw - unpleasant stuff, but he's on the mend.”

'You look at Ricky Burns and he looks more like choirboy than a fighter, but he's one brave kid and our immediate concern is to make sure that he's okay.”

'He'll be in for a couple of days and then we wait and see how it sets and forms and go from there.'


Clearly Burns went through hell and here at Vital Boxing we sincerely hope the injury doesn’t end his career, especially with a date at the mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden beckoning!
