Appleby gets WBO I/C fight

Scottish ace Paul Appleby will get the chance to break into the world rankings when he fights on December 4 at the Braehead Arena. The former British featherweight champion will box for the vacant WBO Intercontinental title at super featherweight, joining Ricky Burns as chief support on the card, live on Sky Sports 1HD. If Appleby wins his 12 round fight, he is likely to break into the WBO’s top 15. “I thought I was having a non-title fight on December 4, so this is a nice surprise,” said the 23-year-old. “It will do my ranking with the WBO some good and we will see where we go from there. My dream has always been to be a world champion, and if I had the opportunity to fight for a world title, I would definitely take it. I’m just concentrating on my fight on December 4, and making sure I am in the best possible shape. But I’ve felt great these last few months, and things just keep better and better.”
