got this from FN

Quote
The WBO has called a purse bid for the mandatory title defense of WBO junior lightweight champion Roman “Rocky” Martinez against #1 rated Ricky Burns. The purse bid will be held on January 13 at the WBO Headquarters in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The minimum bid is $150,000.

cant say i think Ricky has earnt this,i suppose it is more to do with mitchell moving up to LW.However i really hope he ca deliver and Give us up here what we need,a World Champion .There has laready been an offer from the puerto ricans of $50000 (tax free) and the air fairs aswell .

so we will see if W***** puts his hands in his pockets to deliver!

Burns doesn't have the power to keep Martinez off.

no but hes experienced enough to box him and his counterpunching would be his gbiggest power.The problem that cook had was he rushed in and he got caught,martinez is a good puncher at the weight and he took advantage of cook's carelessness.

You're right there, Cook was badly hammered when he got careless.

great opportunity for Ricky if this comes off but i just think Martinez will be too much for him, don't think he'll take him to school because don't get me wrong, Ricky can box, but i think Martinez will be too big, too strong and will eventually at some point in the fight, stop him

With great power, comes great responsibility

Cant say he hasnt earned it. Hes called both Cook and Mitchell out and none of them are interested. I think both would beat Ricky but he still shouted them and they didnt want to know.

I think Martinez will be too much also but no way will it be as bad as Cook.

Should be a good fight, I wouldnt like Burns' chances at all though if the fight is in Puerto Rico.

Burns is an honest pro - and far less deserving people than him get a dream chance at a world champion.

Lets hope he gives it everything.
