Zegan to get title shot?

Looks like newly crowned WBO super featherweight champion Ricky Burns (29-2, 7 KOs) will make his first defense against #3 rated Matt Zegan (42-5-2, 21 KOs) on December 4 or December 11 in London. Apparently the contract was signed today and the fight will go ahead despite Zegan’s questionable draw with Boris Berg (3-0-1, 2 KOs) in a junior welterweight bout on Sunday in Berlin. Berg was originally announced as the winner of that bout, however two days later the result was controversially changed to a draw by the German Boxing Association.
