World lightweight champion Ricky Burns is "very unhappy" after having his fight with Miguel Vasquez called off, according to his manager.

Ricky Burns has been left in limbo after having his world title clash with Miguel Vazquez cancelled less than three weeks before fight night.

Burns was due to take on the Mexican in a lightweight unification clash at the Wembley Arena, but the bout has been cancelled by promoter Frank Warren.

The Scot is furious with the news after having a third successive title defence called off, according to his manager Alex Morrison.

"While there is talk of it being rescheduled within 30 days, Ricky and I are very unhappy," Morrison told The Sun.

Warren's show at Wembley ran into serious trouble this weekend, with George Groves pulling out to sign a promotional deal with Matchroom Boxing.
