WBO World Lightweight Champion Ricky Burns says he will end the year with a bang against hard-hitting Filipino challenger Jose Ocampo.

 

Scottish hero Burns makes the third defence of his title on promoter Frank Warren's six-title extravaganza on Saturday 15th December at the ExCeL London, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).

 

Burns is coming off a career best win destroying British rival Kevin Mitchell inside four rounds in September and is now in line for a huge unification showdown with American star Adrien Broner who won the WBC title earlier this month.

 

First he has to get through the heavy handed Ocampo, ranked number 14 by the WBO, who has stopped 12 out of 17 opponents early and although he has five losses and a draw, he has never been stopped.

 

He replaces the original challenger Liam Walsh who was injured in a car crash two weeks ago forcing him to withdraw from the fight.

 

The 23-year-old comes from the Sarangani Province that is governed by Congressman and pound-for-pound best Manny Pacquiao.

 

And Ocampo, a former WBO Oriental has been described as a young Pacquiao with a similar aggressive, strong punching style and plenty of fighting heart.

 

Two-weight world champion Burn’s, who’s had a top year with title defences against Paulus Moses and Mitchell, says he will put in a devastating performance.

 

"I’d say that this is going to be the hardest fight of my career so far against a young hungry challenger who will be looking to take my title,” Said Burns

 

“Filipino fighters are as tough as they come, just look at Pacquiao and Nonito Donnaire, like the Mexican’s and African’s they come to have a fight and Ocampo will do just that. If he fights like those two, as people say he does, then I’ll be in for a tough night,”

 

“It’s unfortunate that Walsh had an accident and had to pull out of our fight, but I’m a world champion and I have to deal with these changes and I’m confident I’ll deal with Ocampo,”

 

“I’ll let my trainer Billy Nelson do the homework and he’ll come up with the master plan to beat this guy like he has done for all my big fights against Mitchell, Katsidis and Martinez,”

 

Promoter Frank Warren added, “It’s going to be hard for Ricky, he’s been training to face Walsh and in an ideal world he would have had more time to prepare for the different style that Ocampo will bring. He can’t afford to slip up, though, we are virtually there with the fight against Broner for next year and that will only happen if he comes through against Ocampo.”

 

Burns v Ocampo headlines a massive six-title card that features George Groves defending his Commonwealth Super-Middleweight title against Glen Johnson in the chief support; plus Commonwealth Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders defends his title against Nick Blackwell with the vacant British title also on the line; unbeaten Bradley Skeete challenges Southern Area Welterweight Champion Chas Symonds for his title and WBO International Cruiserweight Champion Tony Conquest defends against Neil Dawson.
