WBO mandate Burns v Crawford - Beltran must wait for rematch

The WBO have confirmed that Lightweight champion Ricky Burns must face Terrence Crawford, his mandatory contender in his next fight.


Burns had hoped to give Raymundo Beltran a rematch following a controversial draw with the American based Mexican in September.


Many ringside observers felt Beltran, who scored a knockdown in the fight and broke the Scotsman’s jaw, did more than enough to win, causing calls for an immediate rematch. Burns had gone on record saying he would like to face Beltran again, but it appears the Mexican will have to wait in line as Crawford gets his shot at the title.
