PROMOTER Eddie Hearn claims Ricky Burns refused easier options to take a “nightmare” fight with Julius Indongo.

Burns will face the unbeaten Namibian for the WBA, IBF and IBO World super-lightweight titles to unify the division at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on April 15.

The 33-year-old Scot became a three-weight world champion when he claimed the vacant WBA title by beating Michele di Rocco last year.
