Burns has had a terrible year two defeats arguably three if you count the Beltrán draw as a lost.
Raymundo Beltrán broke his jaw & Burns showed a lot of heart to hang on till the end but, Beltrán was clearly robbed of a decision on foreign soil. Terence Crawford outclassed Burns on his return & in his last bout the unknown Montenegrin Dejan Zlaticanin knocked him down in the first round, before going on to win a decision.
A year ago he was a highly ranked lightweight & now his career is in limbo, will he be able to compete against world class opposition again?
His record stands: W 36 (KO 11) L 4 (KO 0) D 1
