Burns will fight again - Morrison
Ricky Burns' manager Alex Morrison is in no doubt his man will fight on after sustaining a broken jaw Saturday's WBO lightweight title fight.
Burns returns home on Monday after surgery to mend a clean break of the jaw sustained in the controversial draw with Raymundo Beltran in Glasgow.
The Coatbridge fighter, 30, picked up the injury in the second round against the Mexican at the SECC but despite being on the back foot for much of the night he retained his belt when the judges awarded a draw.
Promotoer Eddie Hearn subsequently claimed that Burns, who had titanium plates inserted in his jaw, faced a battle to recover sufficiently to box again.
However, on Monday he revealed a picture of the boxer in a tweet which read: "Just spoke to @ricksterko - back home today. Sore but in good spirits - next few weeks are vital, fingers crossed."
Meanwhile, Burns' manager Morrison insists his fighter will be back in the ring.
He told STV: "Ricky is a bit sore but there is no doubt he will fight on.
"He will see the medical people in about two weeks and it's expected to take around six weeks for him to recover.
"I wouldn't be surprised if he was back the gym next Monday to keep himself in shape.
"He is keen for a rematch but Beltran and his camp are in no position to pick and choose, so any rematch would be in Glasgow."
Burns used his Twitter account to thank his supporters while hoping he can return to full fitness and take on Beltran again.
He tweeted: "Thanks every1 for the messages, fingers crossed the damage isn't too bad and we can get the rematch on the go!!"
