Sky Sports is live at 4 p.m. EDT today with a nice card featuring a double main event in the 130 and 135 pound divisions.
At super featherweight, titlist Ricky Burns (31-2, 8 KO) puts his WBO trinket on the line against Nicky Cook (30-2, 16 KO) in an intriguing matchup that could land Cook his second major title. Cook held this belt before briefly, beating Alex Arthur, but lost it in his next fight to Roman Martinez, the man Burns unseated.
At lightweight, John Murray (31-0, 18 KO) has given up his European title to chase a major belt on the world stage, but will first have to deal with returning countryman Kevin Mitchell (31-1, 23 KO). Mitchell, 26, hasn't fought since a TKO-3 loss in May 2010 to Michael Katsidis, and since then has had a bad run outside of the ring, drinking his money away, while currently he's due up on some fairly serious drug charges. He'll try to put that aside and get his career back on the right track.
Also in action today: Welterweight prospect Frankie Gavin (10-0, 8 KO) faces Curtis Woodhouse (15-2, 10 KO), and light heavyweight Tony Bellew (15-0, 10 KO) faces Ovill McKenzie (18-10, 7 KO) for the second time.
