Review: 2014-06-27, great start but the rest of the fight was not so exciting: Ricky Burns vs Dejan Zlaticanin gets two stars. Ricky Burns entered this fight with a pro boxing record of 36-3-1 (11 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.5 lightweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Miguel Vazquez), he has won world titles in two different weight classes but in his last two bouts he drew against Raymundo Beltran (=Burns vs Beltran) and he lost to Terence Crawford losing his Wbo Lw title (=Burns vs Crawford).
His opponent, the undefeated Dejan Zlaticanin, has a perfect record of 18-0-0 (13 knockouts) and he entered as the No.20 in the same weight class, he fought twice in 2013 defeating Petr Petrov and Asan Yuseinov.
