Liam Walsh suffered muscle injuries in the accident at Marsham, Norfolk and had to be cut out of a car. Executive for Scotland’s Burns is in the progression of lining up a replacement challenger for the London ExCeL bout. “If it had meant a week and a half off, I would have been pleased to go ahead but it’s more like four weeks,” said Walsh.
Burns, 29, was likely to start the fight as an overwhelming favourite following his impressive fourth-round win over Kevin Mitchell in September. And a possible union fight with American Adrien Broner was considered for the winner, assume Broner can dethrone WBC lightweight champ Antonio DeMarco.
Even though Walsh’s withdrawal, Burns’s manager Alex Morrison said his indict would carry on his planning to defend his title. “It’s unfortunate what has happened to Walsh and we send him our best for a speedy upturn but his extraction won’t stop Ricky fighting in London next month. We expect to announce his new competitor in the next few days.”
