6 Things We Learned from Ricky Burns vs. Terence Crawford

As predicted by Bleacher Report's Briggs Seekins, Terence Crawford won a clear points victory over Ricky Burns in Glasgow on Saturday night.

Burns had held a WBO world title since 2010, initially in the super-featherweight division, but the fighter from Nebraska is the new champion in the lightweight division.

Crawford will return to the U.S. with the belt and may well face Raymundo Beltran in his first defence, the fighter who was unlucky to only get a draw on the judges' cards in Burns' previous fight.

The scores were 116-112, 116-112 and 117-111, and whilst the right man won, there was maybe a little home bias there. I scored it 119-111 for Crawford.

Here are six things we learned from the action.
