Ricky Burns v Michele Di Rocco fight time, plus date and venue
Ricky Burns will be looking to make history by becoming the first Scottish fighter to win world titles in three different weight classes when he faces Italian Michele Di Rocco for the vacant WBA super-lightweight title. Burns gets his chance on home turf as the pair will meet at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on Saturday (May 28).
Burns, a former super-feather and lightweight world champion, has seen his career dip after losses to Terence Crawford, Dejan Zlaticanin and Omar Figueroa. Di Rocco hasn’t lost since 2007, though his opposition has been fairly limited.
