this aint the first time ive come accross Burns oponents being called into question. And it aint the first time ive had to come into the argument. Burns has been in with 8 world champions. Mitchell has been in with 2, and lost to 1 of em lol. This will be a great fight. Mitchell will need burns to be stationary (like murray) to be able to land his power shots. Both guys need to stay off the ropes. All the rumours of Burns bashing Mitchell up in sparring where confirmed last weekend in the face to face on boxnation, with mitchell saying Burns was to big and too strong for him in sparring. What i found interesting was that at the time they sparred ricky was a super featherweight and kevin was at lightweight. Guess what, ricky is bigger, stronger, heavier, more powerful, more energetic, has a stiffer jab, and has improved in every department since then. Thats a fact. I think its going to take a poor performance from Burns to lose this fight. And i dont know what would make anyone think Burns will freeze, he is definately a big stage performer. IE, the better the oponent, the better he is (see burns vs martinez, burns vs Katsidis). Burns is far from over rated, hes probably the most underrated lightweight right now. And as for the comment on ‘tibbs will have kev living the life’……….. The biggest fight of mitchells life was against katsidis, and according to all the excuse makers, he didnt even train for it looooool. Burns by wide UD

You cannot say Mitchell has beaten better fighters than Burns. Katsidis hammered Mitchell with ease and Burns beat Katsidis. These are the facts. Also Roman Martinez was probably a better fighter than MItchel too. That said, this looks like a great match up.

A great fight hardly anyone will see because it’s stuck on crappy Boxnation.

This should be a great fight. I just hope Mitchell has really knuckled down for this one. If he turns up in tip-top shape he has everything to give Ricky his hardest fight even tho Billy Nelson doesn’t seem to think so. Maybe Ricky’s success has gone to Billy’s head.

The winner must fight DeMarco/Molina in a WBC/WBO unification!

mitchell goin to stop the hit and hold burns mitchell has well under rated power and has faced better fighters in his career and if he would of had his head right would of beat katsidis i think burns is a nice guy but well overated and has a boring style
