Burns who captured the interim crown in November 2011 in the fight of his life beating Michael Katsidis, now goes into the ring in Galsgow next month as the full world champ to face Paulus Moses.

Daily Sport says- Ricky showed what a strong fighter he was against Katsidis and fully deserves now being the full world champ. We wish him every success in Barhead against Moses.
