The WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns' unification title fight with IBF belt-holder Miguel Vazquez has been delayed by a month due to the Mexican suffering from a severe viral infection.

The pair were set to meet on 16 March at Wembley Arena, but Vazquez's illness has forced Burns' promoter Frank Warren to postpone the event – which was also set to feature WBO light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly – until 20 April.
