Burns Wants Beltran Re-Match

What makes Boxing so different from other sports is that its competitors are driven on by that urge to right wrongs.

Boxers that are defeated often declare an urge to avenge that defeat whilst others that got the right end of a dubious decision seem to have no qualms about setting the record right.

Recently we’ve witnessed David Price try to get revenge on Tony Thompson but suffering the same consequence, namely, a knockout defeat.

Now, having been given the verdict against Raymundo Beltran, there are noises coming from the Ricky Burns camp that Burns, once he has recovered from the broken jaw injury inflicted by Beltran, wants to show that he is a class above his challenger.

Talking about the prospect, Burns has remarked to the media,

'I think it's only right to fight Raymundo again.'

'I think it's the fight the fans want to see.'

'I've been doing light training and hopefully I'll be back boxing in five to six weeks.

'Once I start sparring and the jaw has taken a couple of skelps, I'll be more confident with it.'

'My jaw is on the mend.'

'It's healing the way it should.

'I think people knew that wasn't the real me in that ring. I was in survival mode from the second round.”


All fair comments and continuing to push the prospect of a re-match, Burns promoter Eddie Hearn added,

'I think he deserves his shot and, more importantly, Ricky wants to put the record straight.”



The key now is the rehabilitation of Ricky Burns. We can't rush things. We really won't know until he is back in sparring, taking blows on that jaw again.'


Perfectly correct but perhaps we shouldn’t forget is that Burns hasn’t been the same dominant fighter in his last two fights and there are mutterings amongst those who follow our sport that perhaps the Scottish fighter peaked earlier in his career.

Any comments on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

I wonder if Beltran would come back to the UK after last time!
