5th SEPTEMBER 2010 CONGRATULATIONS TO RICKY BURNS AND STEPHEN SMITH

Congratulations to new WBO World Superfeatherweight Champion Ricky Burns on his excellent unanimous points victory over the formidable and formerly undefeated Peurto Rican Roman Martinez.

Ricky joins WBA Lightweight Champion Amir Khan and IBF Superbantamweight Champion Steve Molitor as former Commonwealth Champion currently holding a 'big four' 'World' Championship. The Commonwealth Championship becomes automatically vacant and a number of approaches have already been made to the CBC with suggestions for a vacant Title match.

Congratulations also to Stephen Smith who outpointed defending Champion John Simpson to become the new Commonwealth Featherweight Champion on the same bill.
