Burns saw a scheduled defence cancelled on Saturday after both Liam Walsh and Jose Ocampo pulled out and his management are now lining up a title defence in January - followed by Broner.
Manager Alex Morrison told STV: "I spoke to Ricky this morning and we decided he will not be fighting Adrian Broner in February.
"Ricky didn't want to jump from a non-event to the biggest fight of his life in a matter of weeks.
"He'll make a defence of his title in Glasgow in January and we'll look at Broner after that."
Morrison named his price for taking the Scot to America to fight Broner.
"Ricky will fight in America if the money is right," he said.
"That's £400,000 net, after fees, after tax. We could be looking at April."
