According to Billy Nelson it was Burns' choice not to take the fight, not Warren's.
Wonder if it was more Ricky's or more Alex Morrison's. Interesting nonetheless. It's not looking good from his side all this, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt one last time that after December's debacle and 6 months out of the ring, they just want another fight in January before looking at possibly the May 4th date.
If he doesn't fight Broner sometime in the spring or summer then well, we'll know exactly who's ducking who. Unless Broner moves up to 140 after Rees because he's tired of chasing Burns, in which case Ricky had his chance and I can't exactly blame Broner and Golden Boy.
I'd like to see Broner in with Burns and Vazquez before moving up though. Plenty of time, he's still young, still relatively inexperienced, still progressing and new to this sort of level and the big fights at 140 like Garcia and Khan are going nowhere for the time being.
