Burns defends his WBO lightweight title against the mandatory challenger from Puerto Rico on Saturday night in Betfair’s ‘Fighting Pride of Scotland’ and the Coatbridge star has asked his fans to turn out in force as they hit the scales on Friday.
“It would be great to get all the fans down to the St. Enoch’s Centre and show José what he’s got in store on Saturday night,” said Burns.
“The atmosphere in the Emirates Arena is going to be electric and he’ll never have experienced anything like it before.
“I believe I’ve got the best fans in the world and the noise they made last time out against Kevin Mitchell was incredible. It gave me a massive lift and they played a huge part in the best night of my career so far.
“I’m looking forward to more of the same on Saturday night, but it all really starts with the weigh-in and we need them there on Friday to show just how passionate us Scots are about our boxing.”
Burns and González head the bill in Glasgow as John Simpson faces Choi Tseveenpurev for the vacant WBO Intercontinental super featherweight title and top Scottish talent fill out the undercard, including unbeaten trio David Brophy, Jon Slowey and Stephen Simmons.
