Vazquez warned by hot Burns

Other Sports

Ricky Burns is confident that his tough training regime will give Miguel Vazquez something to think about in their lightweight battle.

Burns will put his WBO title on the line, while the Mexican, Vazquez, will be defending his IBF crown in the unification fight at London’s Wembley Arena on March 16.

And the Scottish fighter feels a week training at minus 16 in frozen Norway has given him the extra edge going into next month’s battle and will ensure he is too hot for Vazquez to handle.

“We went over for a week,” Burns told the Daily Mirror “Andreas’ (Evensen) trainer got in touch with us and it was organised before the fight was announced.

“It was a good trip apart from the weather. It was freezing. Even they said it was colder than usual.

“I had a good time though. Andreas’ style is totally different, but I said I would help him out so it was a good start to the training camp and I’m looking forward to my fight.

“This is one of the hottest nights of boxing in Britain for a while. It is a big card, with great fights on it.”
