Ricky «Rickster» Burns
Ricky Burns is a British professional boxer.
The last fight of Ricky Burns took place on November 10, 2018 against
Burns won by technical knockout (TKO).
When we stood next to each other, I felt I was the slightly bigger guy. We’ll just see how it goes on the night. If he wants to come out and box, it’s gonna be a boxing match. I am looking to go out and box and do what I usually do.
Lee «Lightning» Selby
Lee Selby is a British professional boxer.
The last fight of Lee Selby took place on February 23, 2019 against
Selby won by unanimous decision (UD).
Lee came up to Scotland to help me out when I boxed Terence Crawford, so we know each other well. The spars were fantastic. It was great preparation obviously for that fight, Crawford was a switch-hitter, and Lee likes to do a bit of that himself.
Everybody keeps on asking 'how long have you got left?' But I still enjoy it, I still love the sport and these are the fights I want to be involved in. I'm confident of going out there and getting the win and that's all I'm focused on.
Burns held 51 professional boxing matches, in 7 of them he lost, however, all 7 by decision.
Such a long career ruined him. In recent years, he has boxed differently than before, completely unexpectedly lost to Anthony Crolla by unanimous decision.
Selby is 4 years younger than Burns. He was also a world champion, but still hungry and now wants to become a lightweight champion.
Most likely, Selby will not be able to knock out Burns, but will exhaust him all 12 rounds, as a result of which either Ricky will refuse to continue the fight himself or the judges will give the victory by unanimous decision to Lee.
