  • Ricky Burns down in the eighth round for an eight count from referee Phil Edwards.
  • Beltran breaks Burns' jaw in the second round. After the bout, Burns had surgery to insert a Titanium plate into his jaw.
  • Beltran appeared to win rounds 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10 and 12 to win the title outright, but the bout was somewhat close to score.
  • The two foreign judges scored the bout in different directions, the British judge Richard James Davies scored it 114-114 a draw.
  • Burns offered Beltran, Manny Pacquiao's longtime sparring partner who is ranked sixth in the world by BoxRec, an immediate rematch.
