Ricky Burns fight not a done deal, claims Vazquez

Miguel Vazquez has claimed that his proposed fight with Ricky Burns is not a done deal.

Speaking at the weekend through an interpreter in this video clip courtesy of Elie Seckbach, Vazquez claims that the match is not yet "concrete...but if they [the promoters] come to an agreement there's probably going to be a fight."
A unification match between WBO lightweight champion Burns and IBF boss Vazquez is being advertised as headlining a bill three weeks on Saturday [March 16th] at Wembley Arena.
Vazquez spoke very respectfully of Burns but, predictably, backed himself to win a contest between the pair, should it take place.


Simon Barclay speaks to BoxRec News from Klitschko's Champ Camp

Heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko is preparing to face Australian Alex Leapai on 26th April and as usual he has chosen the familiar surroundings of the Austrian Alps. Just hours after winning his professional debut at the Copper Box in London, 24-year old Corby cruiserweight Simon Barclay was on a plane to join up with him in what the Ukrainian calls 'Champ Camp'.

Fight Reports

Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (6-1) got back on track with a close points win over Peckham’s Diego Burton (4-4-1) over ten rounds at the York Hall on Saturday. It was a belter of a fight on a slightly smaller than usual Goodwin bill, partly due to 'Flash' Ashley Sexton not making weight again (more on this later) and 'Big Dog' AJ Carter’s opponent, who reportedly turned up with Evo-Stick holding his mooey in place.
