Biography

Scottish hero Ricky Burns became the first fighter from his country to become a three-weight world champion in 2016.

By stopping Michele Di Rocco in Glasgow, Burns added the WBA super-lightweight title to the WBO lightweight and super-featherweight crowns he held earlier in his illustrious career.

Burns has mixed it with some of the best fighters of his generation including Terence Crawford, Anthony Crolla and Michael Katsidis.

The seasoned Burns, who has also a British and Commonwealth champion in his career, made his Probellum debut in December 2021.
