Dont know if anyone saw Burns v Roman Martinez from Saturday night, but Ricky made Rocky look like a fuckin club fighter, albeit a very hard hitting club fighter. Burns rangy style made Martinez resort to swinging for the fences almost from the start, to recover from a first round KD to then take the champs best shots and then his belt on your first trip onto the world stage as a heavy underdog is some feat.
Well done Ricky great performance
i watched that fight on stream yesterday.... it was apparent early on that neither one has major skill and will only be holding the title till someone comes along with real ability and take the title but it was a wonderful fight.... it had good back and fourth action and at the end of the day burns deserved to win the fight so no one can say it was a home decision.... he got the job done.. much props...
