Rule Britannia - Championship Boxing: Ricky Burns, Nathan Cleverly, Dereck Chisora, Liam Walsh, Miguel Vazquez
Promoter Frank Warren has put together the blockbuster event 'Rule Britannia' featuring some of the biggest stars in British boxing, including Ricky Burns, Nathan Cleverly, George Groves, Dereck Chisora and Liam Walsh.
WBO World Lightweight Champion Burns headlines the show in a sizzling unification showdown against tough Mexican IBF World Champion Miguel Vazquez.
Burns, 27, returns to action following his tremendous 2012 when he become Scotland's first two-weight world champion in twenty years and ended the year stopping long-time rival Kevin Mitchell inside four rounds. With thrilling wins against top fighters Roman Martinez and Michael Katsidis in his career, Burns faces yet another hard test against Vazquez, 26, who has made five defences of his world title in a 36-fight career.
Hailing from Guadalajara, Vazquez was last in action in December on the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez card when he defeated Mercito Gesta on points to retain his belt. Vazquez became the first man to beat Breidis Prescott after the dynamite-punching Colombian destroyed Amir Khan inside a round and has only lost on points to current world champions Saul Alvarez (twice) and Timothy Bradley.
It's been Burns' dream to unify the title and he's excited to finally get the opportunity.
