Ricky Burns (45-5-1) will defend his WBA World Super-Lightweight title against Kiryl Relikh at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on Friday October 7, live on Sky Sports.

It’s Burns dream of fighting in Las Vegas and with a potential fight looming against Adrien Broner he is within touching distance of a massive pay-day.

However the Coatbridge star must first defend his title against Hatton prodigy Kiryl Relikh (21-0) who boasts 19 KOs from 21 fights.

Ricky Hatton believes Relikh could snatch it all away:

“What a wonderful career Ricky has had and for him not to fight in Vegas would be a crying shame. As a boxer we always dream of fighting in Vegas and I’m sure Ricky wants to tick that box.

“But I just don’t think he’s ever going to get there now.
“I’m a proud Brit and whenever our lads are fighting, whether it be Anthony Joshua, Kell Brook or Ricky Burns, I’ll always be in their corner as a fan.

“But I’m up against Ricky this time. It’s a strange one for me. Ricky’s not on speed dial but I consider him family when it comes to British boxing circles.

“This is a fight I’m really looking forward to. Kiryl is massively confident. He just doesn’t think he’s just going to be a world champion – he thinks he’s going to be a superstar. He keeps telling me, ‘I’m going to be where Golovkin is’.

“I’ve worked hard for my reputation. I wouldn’t stick it on the line if he wasn’t up to it. He’s the real deal. He even told me he will be better that I was – that’s confidence.

“I firmly believe he’s going to break a few Scottish hearts.”
