Ricky «Rickster» Burns
Ricky Burns is a British professional boxer.
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.
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.
