TARK talking utter crap AGAIN. Just crawl back under the rock you came from you low-life piece of scum.

Tom Cribb…, That’s a bunch of baloney. I’ve seen many robberies in the UK beside Burns last fight…

Froch-Groves was a quick stoppage… Chisora-Scott was a quick stoppage, he was up at nine… Amos Johnson was robbed vs Brian London — right after he beat Henry Cooper.. The Brits gave Johnson a BS disqualification.. Karl Mildenberger was robbed in England.. He cut the Hell out of Cooper with punches and they DQ’d him for imaginary butts. They stopped Calzaghe-Mitchell because Byron was sent back from a punch. Completely uncalled for … Germany isn’t as flagrantly biased as the UK.

I thought you took the fight to the champ to be honest PJ, particularly when you’re on the road and in the champs backyard.

TARK crawls out of his hole to spout more anti-British fighter bile and garbage. Crawl back little man, keep your stench away from the rest of us.

Yep, I agree. TARK is another American racist. This place is crawling with them. Tark is one of the worst.

“The judges won’t have anything in mind but trying to make Burns the winner. This is the UK we’re talking about.

Since when are bought and paid for judges worried about sigma and charges of favoritism??? About the only way Crawford wins is if he wins 10 clear rounds or stops Burns.”

Yeah like there’s never been corrupt judges and terrible hometown decisions in the USA. America is the worst country in the world for that, they have a long history of cheating fighters from outside the USA.

The worst one I remember in recent times was Richard Abril totally dominating Brandon Rios and losing! Typical of TARK to hide behind his computer and mouth off the gutless coward.

I’ve only seen clips of Crawford in the build-up to this fight so it’s hard for me to get a real sense of the challenge he poses to Burns. However, I’m confident that Burns will pose significant challenges to Crawford or any LW. I know that Ricky hasn’t performed well in his last couple of outings but at his best (and people think he’ll need it!) he is no slouch and has all the intangibles to make life very difficult for an inexperienced challenger fighting away from home. Crawford may start well but these fights are 12 rounds long and we’ve seen Burns out-last guys before who have had the better of him early. I don’t know if this will be a Calzaghe/Lacy situation or a Jones/Curry situation but if Crawford is as good as some say then it should be a hell of a night cos the Scottish fans will be roaring Burns on big time!!

Tom Cribb

@TARK – The UK does NOT have a history of corrupt judging anything like on the level of the USA, Germany or Italy. Burns lost his last fight sure, but that type of clear robbery is very rare in the UK. Look at Bradley Vs Pacqiao, Cloud Vs Campillo, Holyfield Vs Lewis I, Leonard-Hearns II, Peterson-Khan among MANY others..ie, look closer to home!

Burns will land a jab and then it will be Burns TKO 1 Crawford
Muahahaha!!! Stoppage UK style

This pundit says.., “WBO appointed judges for Saturday’s defence against Crawford will have this in mind and are likely to score many of the potentially close rounds to the American in order to prevent any further stigma.”

The judges won’t have anything in mind but trying to make Burns the winner. This is the UK we’re talking about.

Since when are bought and paid for judges worried about sigma and charges of favoritism??? About the only way Crawford wins is if he wins 10 clear rounds or stops Burns.

Rickys best chance of victory is to force feed Terence some haggis pre bout .

You are so wrong it’s laughable.

Crawford will take Burns apart. It won’t be close, Crawford will win in style by TKO.

Think Crawford is slightly overrated to be honest and fighting a handful of tomato cans in a few 10 rounders hardly tells us anything.

Glasgow is a long way from home.

Looking forward to this fight.

KOrnerman if anyone is clueless you, Crawford will win easily, he’s far better than Burns.

Oh this’ll be good when Rickster shuts all of you up and pounds Crawford, Cmone son shut the lot of clueless idiots right up.

Burns isn’t even the best lightweight in the UK.

Burns is done. Crawford is very good and has a bright future.

I agree. I don’t think Burns wants to fight anymore.

Crawford by the 8th round at the latest, but don’t be surprised if this fight is over much sooner. Burns will be totally outclassed.

Burns is a super nice bloke and a decent fighter who’s “good” in every department. He’s a hard night for anyone. C’mon Ricky!

Some may not know Crawford has a win over

Danny Garcia.

Big Ham

Joe Calzaghe, Lennox Lewis, Ricky Hatton are fighters on a world stage. Ricky Burns, Gavin Reese, And Junior Witter are fighers on a British stage. When they enter the world stage, they fall off the stage. That is gonna happen to Burns who from what i hear had to rob poor Beltran to get a decision. Crawford is a no nonsense not to exciting athletically gifted fighter. He should handle this one with ease.

Looking forward to this fight. I like Crawford and think he will come away with a decision. From what I have seen of Burns he won’t be stopped.

My friends, Richard ‘Ricky’ Burns is a man made in Scotland from girders, like Irn Bru. Made of steel, Man Of Steel. A dazzling virtuoso of a boxer, Ricky is alnost like a young Superman as he dances, ducks, weaves and moves away from his opponents punches effortlessly. A modern-day Benny Lynch almost, Ricky is a blazing, shining young star of the fight game, a man with his name in lights, an all-action fighter with a jab like a piston, with the dextrous footwork of a ballet dancer, a Scottish ‘Black Swan’ if you like, with stamina to burn, a whirlwind of fury inside the four ropes and the heart of a lion. Ricky is a polished punishing pugilist, a tremendous terror of the ring, a fighting folk hero and as a fan, I believe, of that fine and famous old Scottish football club, Celtic FC, soon to win their 47th domestic top tier League Championship, he represents the old working class ethos of loyalty and integrity while coming from a humble beginning to boy made good. My friends, Ricky Burns is a World Champion of the highest regard and calibre and young Mr Crawford is in for a rude awakening if he thinks he will take Ricky’s title easily. Will Crawford turn out to be another Howard Davis or Adrien Broner, or will he be the new lightweight sensation?!? Will he be humbled by Ricky in the same manner that Broner was by Marcos Maidana? We shall see…
