Burns back on World title trail – Limond vs. Woodhouse and Simmons vs. Camacho set for undercard
Ricky Burns is gunning for a return to winning ways as he tops a great line-up of action on Friday June 27 at the Braehead Arena, live on Sky Sports.
Tickets are on sale now as the former two-weight World champion is set to face the unbeaten Montenegrin Dejan Zlaticanin after the WBC approved the fight for the International title and as an official eliminator for the World title.
The undercard is led by a cracking Light Welterweight contest with Willie Limond defending his Commonwealth title against Curtis Woodhouse while Cruiserweight rivals Stephen Simmons and Wadi Camacho meet in a spicy clash, subject to board approval.
Jon Slowey faces Kris Hughes for the vacant Celtic Featherweight title, unbeaten Lightweight star Scotty Cardle is set for a step-up fight and there is action for unbeaten Scottish talents David Brophy and Michael Roberts.
“I can’t wait for another massive Glasgow show, with a packed card of great fights,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “It’s a huge opportunity for Ricky to get back into World title mix with the WBC, there’s an old school 50-50 in Limond versus Woodhouse and a true grudge match with Simmons against Camacho.”
Tickets are on sale priced £40, £60 and £100 on 0844 499 1700, at www.braehead-arena.co.uk and in person from the Braehead Arena on Thursdays from 12pm-9pm, Fridays from 12pm-5pm and Saturday from 10am-2pm.
