Jose Ocampo will now not be challenging Ricky Burns for his WBO Lightweight title at the ExCeL London this Saturday.
Contrary to some reports in media outlets, Ocampo has been withdrawn.
Burns will still headline the show! An opponent will be announced shortly by way of a press release.
It’s an unfortunate situation with Burns’ original challenger Liam Walsh withdrawing because of a car accident, but Burns still fights this Saturday.
