Meeting WBA World Champion Ricky Burns


On the 7th October WBA World Champion Ricky Burns defended his title in his hometown Glasgow against the highly rated Kiryl Relikh. I was very lucky to have an invitation to watch this contest and was even offered ringside seats by my good friend and former English champion Ohara Davies.

I caught up with the champion who goes by Rickster backstage and enjoyed opportunities to take some photos in a historical moment:
