Ricky “The Big Man” Burns, (36-2-0, 11 KO’s) is coming off a sub-par performance in his last fight against Puerto Rican Jose Gonzalez while veteran Raymundo Beltran, (28-6-0, 17 KO’s) has won his last three fights.
I do not think that Burns will have any problems retaining his WBO lightweight title this Saturday night, given that Burns should be more focused going into the fight; and with his home crowd backing him in this fight, he will not disappoint against the always crafty Beltran.

I expect for this fight to be a beautiful sweet science type of fight because I do not expect any knock downs in this fight; just some good clean and good old fashion boxing!!
This fight will boil to which champion shows up at the SECC Arena in Glascow, Scottland; the champion in Burns that put in a sub-par performance in his last fight which raised to eyebows of boxing critics to question whether he is the real deal or not; or a champion in Burns that realize that if he can get past Beltran, he can put himself in line for a big fight with some of the top lightweights in the division.
I choose the latter.
Burns by 12 round unanimous decision
