Ricky Burns defeats Alexandre Lepelley on light-welterweight debut

• Burns wins on points 79-71
• 37th win in 42 fights not enough to silence doubters
Ricky Burns got back to winning ways on his light-welterweight debut but was thoroughly unconvincing in a points decision victory over the lightly regarded Alexandre Lepelley at the First Direct Arena in Leeds.

Burns had lost his last two fights and decided a move up to the 140lbs division would breathe fresh life into his career, but the Scot looked a pale shadow of the fighter that had won world titles in two weight classes.

He dropped his opponent in the opening round but struggled to impose himself after a decent start and although he deserved his victory, a 79-71 scoreline will do little to quieten the doubters who believe the Coatbridge fighter’s best days are behind him, despite recording his 37th win from 42 fights.

Hearn will do something with DeGale. I still reckon he'll let Froch beat him in a 'mega-fight'. But failing that, he'll find him a crap opponent with a belt eventually.
