GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) - Ricky Burns will defend his WBO lightweight title against Puerto Rico's Jose Gonzalez in Glasgow on May 11.

Burns, who has not fought since retaining his belt against Kevin Mitchell in September, has been ordered to face the mandatory challenger by the WBO.

It will be Burns' first fight since splitting with promoter Frank Warren and signing with Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Sport.

Burns (35-2, 10 knockouts) had previously been scheduled for a unification bout against IBF champion Miguel Vazquez but that fight was canceled.
