Whenever there has been an ending to a fight whereby the decision is, to put it mildly, contentious; calls inevitably arise for a re-match to be arranged. Even more so if a world title belt is at stake.

Last Saturday many pundits, especially those on the other side of the pond, thought that Raymundo Beltran had been robbed of his dream of becoming the WBO lightweight champion by two ridiculous judging decisions, whereby one judge scored the fight as a draw and the other gave it to Burns.

Post fight, it was intimated that Burns camp wouldn?t give Beltran a re-match and that Beltran, due to the infuriating judging, wouldn?t be prepared to fight in the UK again.

But, some 72 hours after the fight, could there be a re-match and one that could, possibly take place in Glasgow?

Perhaps so, with Burns manager, Alex Morrison, adding fuel to the fire by remarking,

?He is keen for a rematch with Beltran and his camp are in no position to pick and choose, so any rematch would be in Glasgow.?

Some would say that Burns would be better served avoiding Beltran but with the jaw injury jeopardizing any possible appearance at the legendary Madison Square Garden, perhaps the chance to show that he is a better boxer than Beltran is something Burns cannot shy clear of.
