WBA super lightweight champion Ricky Burns (40-5-1, 14 KOs) will defend his title against Kiryl Relikh (21-0, 19 KOs) at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on Friday October 7.
“Relikh is a very tough fight as a first defense,” said Burns. “He’s got a high KO ratio so he will be very dangerous throughout. Trust me he has my undivided attention and I will have to be at my best to get through this. There are some massive fights out there in the future against some huge names in the 140lbs division – but we’re taking it one step at a time, and that starts on October 7 at the Hydro.”
