Ricky Burns made his professional boxing debut in October 2001, winning his first 13 bouts. After losing two super featherweight title shots, Burns went on a 22-fight unbeaten streak.

During this streak, on Sept. 4, 2010, Burns defeated Roman Martinez to win the WBO Super Featherweight Championship. After three title defenses, Burns followed up by becoming the interim WBO Lightweight Champion with a win over Michael Katsidis in November 2011 before being promoted to official champion. He lost the title to Terence Crawford on March 1, 2014.

On May 28, 2016, Burns defeated Michele di Rocco to win the then-vacant WBA Light Welterweight Championship. Burns lost the title to Julius Indongo in a bout that also saw the IBF and IBO Light Welterweight titles on the line.
