Boxing Betting: Ricky Burns returns to the gym

Pay per head sportsbooks following the fighter were very concerned when they found out that he had to receive surgery after he broke his jaw in September during a controversial draw with Raymundo Beltran – something that boxing betting fans will not forget anytime soon.
But price per head services were happy to learn that the WBO’s lightweight champion said that he still has plans to return to the ring as soon as possible with a title defence against Terence Crawford in Glasgow set for February – in a match where the boxing odds will be very closely followed.
He told Sky Sports News: “When I was in to see the surgeon last week, (we) got an X-ray and they’re happy the way the bone’s healing. The bone’s knitting together nice. They still can’t tell what it’s going to be like, obviously when it starts taking punches again when I start back sparring.
“We’ve got a deadline before we need to fight Terence Crawford, when I spoke to the surgeons they said the later I could have the fight the better, if it was only a couple of weeks it’s a couple more weeks for the jaw (to heal).
“They’re happy with the way it’s going and they’re confident that I should be fine.”
Many boxing betting fans were disappointed to see that an immediate rematch with Beltran was being ruled out when Burns was ordered by the WBO to take on American Crawford, mandatory challenger, in a fifth belt defence.
