GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) - Scottish boxer Ricky Burns will make a mandatory defense of his WBO lightweight title against American challenger Terence Crawford in Glasgow on March 1.
Burns has not fought since his draw against Raymundo Beltran in September, when he suffered a broken jaw in the second round.
Crawford, who has never fought outside the U.S., is unbeaten in 22 professional bouts with 16 knockouts.
It will be Burns' fifth title defense.
