Ricky Burns will be on Ringside on Thursday night to discuss his split with Billy Nelson and what his future holds.

Burns parted company with long-time trainer earlier this month after losing his WBO lightweight title to Terence Crawford and Tony Sims has been suggested as a successor.

The Scot will, no doubt, discuss those rumours, his next fight and his hopes of winning a world title again following a number of years at the very top of his sport.

Burns has also been linked with a clash against the winner of Saturday's lightweight showdown in Manchester between City fan John Murray and United supporter Anthony Crolla, so he should have his say on that potential Fight of the Year candidate, too.

With Scott Quigg also defending his WBA super-bantamweight title against South African dangerman Tshifhiwa Munyai, we will look at Manchester's biggest bouts and delve into the archive.

Former European super-bantamweight champion Spencer Oliver will on set to offer his expert opinion as well on an action-packed show featuring:

BERNARD HOPKINS - We catch up with the 49-year-old IBF light-heavyweight titlist as he aims to become the oldest unified champion by beating WBA counterpart Beibut Shumenov

MANNY PACQUIAO - The Filipino beat Timothy Bradley on Saturday to start up talk of a match with Floyd Mayweather. Will the legends get it on? Ricky and Spencer will air their views
