EDDIE HEARN thought he had seen the last of Ricky Burns when he surrendered his world lightweight title.

But after watching the Coatbridge fighter drag himself back to the summit of world boxing the promoter is refusing to put a limit on Burns’ possibilities.

The ‘Rickster’ faces Namibian Julius Indongo in Glasgow on Saturday night in what he describes as the biggest fight of his career, with the unified super-lightweight world championship on the line.
