Sounds like Ricky Burns was lucky to keep his lightweight title on Saturday

It sounds like Ricky Burns of Scotland was lucky to keep his lightweight title Saturday when he took on Jose Gonzalez of Puerto Rico in Glasgow, Scotland.

Burns was behind on all three scorecards when Gonzalez (22-1, 17 KOs) was forced to stay on his stool after the ninth round because of a suspected broken wrist, according to the Associated Press.

Gonzalez was leading Burns (36-2) by three scores of 87-84.

“I knew the rounds were close; the judges had me behind,” Burns told the Associated Press. “I couldn’t believe how awkward he is. He is a class, class opponent. He’s very hard to hit.”

      Yes, so interesting that even though he has all this wonderful talent, he always gets his dose of boos because his fights are rarely thrilling.
