Category: Professional Boxing - News
Created on Saturday, 15 October 2011 14:58

PhotoThere is absolutely no doubt Tony Bellew (Liverpool)  does not like Nathan Cleverly (Wales) and Nathan does not have Tony on his Christmas card list. So, the referee has to be prepared for action of all sorts and that doesn’t mean the Quality Street liquorice kind. Both boxer have unbeaten records.

ROMAN MARTINEZ vs. RICKY BURNS SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2010, KELVIN HALL, GLASGOW, BURNS HEADS TO ENGLAND FOR SPARRING

From Richard Maynard

Scottish World title challenger Ricky Burns has been forced to head South in the search of sparring partners after knocking too many out at his Glasgow gym.

The WBO super-featherweight title challenger will now team up with Anthony Farnell's gym in Manchester.

And Burns will find good challenges there - it is home to 2007 Amateur World Champion Frankie Gavin, and Commonwealth light-heavyweight king Tony Bellew.

The 27-year-old Scotsman is currently working towards a showdown with Puerto Rican hardman Roman Martinez on September 4 at the Kevin Hall, Glasgow, live on Sky Sports 1.

If his preparations for the fight are anything to by, he could well prevent the title going back to Puerto Rico.

"We've had guys ringing up and cancelling sparring because they've heard what Ricky has been doing in the gym," said trainer Billy Nelson.

"Earlier this week two top fighters rang me within an hour of each other and said there was no way they were getting in the ring with Ricky.

"I can hardly blame them because the way he is fighting at the moment, he's a match for anyone in the super-featherweight division.

"Ever since he's been a wee lad, Ricky has been able to hold his own against anyone when it has come to boxing.

"But I the last 18 months or so he has really developed as a puncher. The wee man is dynamite.

"His fight against Martinez is being billed as a banger against a boxer, but Ricky will more than hold his own when it comes to power.

"He's been sparring light-welterweights and welterweights in the gym and he's been regularly putting them on their backsides.

"I'm so fed up with people refusing to step through the door that we've decided to go down to Manchester for a week or so and have a camp down there.

"It will be great for Ricky to get away for a few days as well and really get himself into fight mode."

Titled 'Burns Night', Martinez v Burns headlines a super-card at the famous Kelvin Hall in Glasgow that also features an exciting showdown between J
ohn Simpson and Stephen Smith for the Commonwealth Featherweight Championship; plus the comeback of former British Featherweight Champion Paul Appleby; and rising stars John Thain, Steven Ormond and Gary O'Sullivan.
