Scottish boxer Ricky Burns will face Leonardo Esteban Gonzalez in Leeds next month as he looks to get back to winning ways in the ring.

Ricky Burns will meet Leonardo Esteban Gonzalez in his first light-welterweight bout next month, it has been announced.

The Scottish boxer, who suffered a demoralising defeat at the hands of Dejan Zlaticanin in June, will take on the 32-year-old Argentine in Leeds.

Burns surrendered his WBO world title earlier this year after losing out to Terence Crawford on a unanimous points decision.

The fight has been set for October 4.
