Scotland’s world champion Ricky Burns will defend his title for the fifth time against unbeaten American Terence Crawford (22-0) in February.

Promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed the fight will take place early next year but said the date and venue would be announced later.

Eddie Hearn tweeted: "Delighted to confirm we have agreed terms with @trboxing for @ricksterko to face @budcrawford402 in Glasgow in February - date confirmed soon."

Scottish newspaper giants The Daily Record belive the venue will be Glasgow’s Hydro and the fight will take place on the 8th of February.

Matchroom Sport boss Hearn told ESPN: "I'm delighted to bring this fight to Scotland. We tried hard to make the Beltran rematch but Crawford is the mandatory and Ricky is happy to accept the challenge.

"It's perhaps the toughest test Ricky has faced so far. There seems to be plenty of hype around Crawford, so let's see how he gets on trying to take Ricky's title in his backyard."
