Ricky Burns has beaten Willie Limond in a thrilling Scottish battle in Glasgow, He was dominant throughout and they had to pull Limond out.
Limond announced his retirement from the sport in the aftermath, with Burns hinting at the same.
I always said I would have loved to get that one final fight in Glasgow,” Coatbridge fighter Burns said.
“I’ve always said, when I stop boxing, I never want to come back. I want to go out on my terms. If this is to be it, I’m happy.
“Who knows? I’ve said that’s me and I can retire and be happy. But, if that phone goes, it’s a decent fight and my missus gives me the green light, it’s game on.”
In 2010, Roman Martinez captured his first world title.
Limond has shared the ring with some of boxing’s biggest names, the likes of Amir Khan and Erik Morales, but at 44 years old and with only two fights in the last six years, it was hard to know how much of a test he would provide for Burns.
During the fight, Ricky’s uppercut connected in the fourth round, and Limond’s face was splattered in blood from an apparent broken nose.
Ricky gave another uppercut in the sixth snapping Limond’s head back, with blood still gushing out of his nose.
The Referee had to pull out in the 8th round to avoid any life-altering injury
Asked about his boxing future, Limond revealed: “I’m done. A short answer finished.
“I’ve got to pass the baton, I can’t keep doing this. But I did enjoy the experience. It was good getting back in about it, it just wasn’t good taking all those shots.”
