Burns has second opponent fall out

Promoter Frank Warren has announced that challenger Jose Ocampo will now not be challenging Ricky Burns for his WBO world lightweight title at the ExCeL London this Saturday. Contrary to some reports in media outlets, Ocampo has been withdrawn. Burns will still headline the show against an opponent that will be announced shortly. Burns’ original challenger Liam Walsh withdrew because of a car accident, while Ocampo is out for undisclosed reasons. Warren and his team are working hard to ensure that Burns still fights this Saturday.
