Ricky Burns will make the next defence of his world title against Terence Crawford

Ricky Burns will return to the ring in Glasgow in February to face Terence Crawford.
The WBO lightweight champion has not fought since his jaw was broken during a highly contentious draw with Raymundo Beltran back in September.
An immediate rematch with Beltran was ruled out when the WBO ordered Burns to take on mandatory challenger Crawford in a fifth defence of the belt.
And Burns' promoter Eddie Hearn has now reached an agreement with the unbeaten American's Top Rank representatives.
Hearn tweeted: "Delighted to confirm we have agreed terms for Ricky Burns to face Terence Crawford in Glasgow in February - date confirmed soon."
Burns tweeted: "For everyone asking, I have to fight Crawford first as he's mandatory! Going to be a great fight!!"
