Burns happier at lightweight

Boxer Ricky Burns says he faces the "toughest and biggest fight of his career" when he faces Australian Michael Katsidis for the interim WBO world lightweight title at Wembley Arena on Saturday 5 November.

The 28-year-old Scot tells the BBC's Chris Latchem he's relieved he will not have to "boil down" to make the weight, having "drained himself" when preparing to face Nicky Cook, who he defeated in the third defence of his WBO super-featherweight title in Liverpool in July.

Burns has now relinquished that title in order to step up to a weight at which he feels more comfortable.
