LONDON (AP) - Ricky Burns will not defend his WBO lightweight title in London on Saturday after Filipino opponent Jose Ocampo pulled out of the fight citing ``contractual issues with TV.''

Ocampo had been a late stand-in for Burns' original challenger, Liam Walsh, who withdrew after hurting his back in a car crash.

Promoter Frank Warren says Burns will return to the ring late in January for the Scotsman's third defense of his belt.
