Yesterday, following on from the operation to mend the broken jaw, with titanium plates, the inference was there, from Eddie Hearn, that Ricky Burns might not fight again.

This morning, the news is a little more positive with Burns manager, Alex Morrison, offering the following comments to the media about Ricky?s state,

?Ricky is a bit sore but there is no doubt he will fight on.?

?He will see the medical people in about two weeks and it?s expected to take around six weeks for him to recover.?

?I wouldn?t be surprised if he was back in the gym next Monday to keep himself fin shape.?

Now that is great news but with such an injury Burns will need to take time out, quite possibly a long time out, to allow everything to return to how it was.

One wrong move and???.well you can guess the rest!
