What a sensational fight and all credit to both boxers but it was some display from Burns to outclass the Peurto Rican the way he did especially after being floored in the 1st. A Scottish world champion, don't get many of those.

Burns showed his weaknesses but crucially showed more heart than his opponent to defend his world title. A big unification fight stateside now beckons.

Yeah he was a little exposed tonight but hopefully he will learn from that experience. A credit to the country none the less.

Looks like it could be the end of the road for Burns. A very fortunate draw against Raymundo Beltran last night after Burns has his jaw broken in the second round. Amazingly Burns bravely saw out the fight but most would say Beltran had done enough to win. Burns had surgery thruough the night to insert a titanium plate in his jaw and a question mark now hangs over his ability to box again.
