WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns has been forced to postpone his latest title defence for a second time.
The 29 year old was due to put his title on the line in Glasgow on January 26, but his manager Alex Morrison has confirmed to the BBC that his title defence has been put back.
Burns was to have fought last December against Jose Ocampo but the Filipino withdrew.
"He’s just having a wee rest before his next fight, which should be at the end of February or beginning of March," Morrison told the BBC.
"We hope it will be in Glasgow so that Ricky’s fans can see him in action. We want to make sure that we get the right opponent for Ricky.
"He was very disappointed after his planned title defence last month was cancelled."
