Interim WBO lightweight titlist Ricky Burns has his opponent for his March 10 homecoming fight in Glasgow. The 28-year-old Scot will be facing former WBA titlist Paulus Moses, according to Fightnews.com.

Burns (33-2, 9 KO) has seen his star rise in a big way in the last couple of years, following an upset win at 130 pounds against Roman Martinez in September 2010 and a lightweight debut victory over Michael Katsidis in his last fight on November 5.

This is certainly a much better fight than, say, Cleverly vs Karpency, as Moses (28-1, 19 KO) is a legit fighter whose only loss came against Miguel Acosta via KO-6 in May 2010. Since that loss, he's gone 3-0 fighting at home in Namibia against mediocre opponents, but he's a solid fighter who shouldn't be considered a gimme for Burns.

There's no undercard firmly set for the show yet, but super bantamweight John Simpson (22-9, 9 KO) is also tentatively penciled in for a Scotland return on the bill.
