Matchroom expected to unveil Ricky Burns on Monday

World champion Ricky Burns is thought to be ready to sign with Matchroom Boxing Promoter Eddie Hearn at a press conference on Monday after leaving Frank Warren last week.

Although Warren has stated that the 29 year-old remains contracted to fight on April 20 against IBF title-holder Miguel Vazquez, Burns is expected to ink with Hearn and focus on the future, according to BBC Scotland’s Andrew Southwick.

Burns shocked all by announcing his intention to leave the experienced promoter after being guided to successive WBO titles at super-featherweight and lightweight, and could now join old stablemates George Groves, Tony Bellew and Kell Brook onthe Matchroom roster.
