Burns has surgery after breaking jaw

GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) - Scottish boxer Ricky Burns has had surgery after breaking his jaw in a draw with Mexican challenger Raymundo Beltran in a WBO lightweight title fight.

Burns confirmed his injury on Twitter, with promoter Eddie Hearn adding Sunday on the social networking site that ``Ricky is now in surgery to have a titanium plate in his jaw.''

He fought with the injury for 10 rounds and was floored in the eighth round on Saturday. However, Burns managed to secure a draw - to his surprise and that of his hometown fans in Glasgow - and retain his title after the third judge scored the fight 114-114.
