LONDON (AP)

Miguel Vazquez of Mexico and Ricky Burns of Britain will put their world lightweight titles on the line when they meet in a unification fight in London on March 16.

BOXING BABES

These babes can't get enough ringside action.

Vazquez will be defending his IBF belt for the sixth time since August 2010, having lost only three of his 36 fights.

Burns saw plans to defend his WBO belt dashed recently when two planned opponents withdrew from title fights.

The bout will form part of a night of action at Wembley Arena called ''Rule Britannia,'' which will also include a light-heavyweight world title fight between champion Nathan Cleverly of Britain and Robin Krasniqi of Kosovo.
