The Tip - Ricky Burns Vs Terence Crawford


- Ricky Burns on points ... £10 ... 4/1 boylesports.com

Ricky Burns may have been in eight world title fights across two weight divisions and never lost one but he is still an underdog against American Terence Crawford who has never been in a world title fight before.

4/9 favourite Crawford comes with a big reputation, from his 20 out of 20 pro fight record and superb amateur career, but this is the best opponent he has faced.

Burns should demand more respect but the fact is that he has struggled in his last two bouts, particularly against opponents with greater reach.

Crawford is just about my favourite to win but odds of 9/4 on a Burns win and 4/1 on a decision win for the Scot are unjustified. Burns doesn't bring lots of power and Crawford is experienced so I am backing the very generous 4/1 with Boylesports.
