  1. Until next time...

    Indongo wins by unanimous decision

    Well, it wasn't to be for Scotland's Ricky Burns.

    A valiant and whole-hearted performance from the home fighter, but Burns came up against an opponent in Julius Indongo who had the better of him from the first bell.

    Scintillating stuff from the Namibian, who deservedly unifies the division.

    It's Indongo who leaves Glasgow as the IBF, IBO and WBA super-lightweight champion of the world.

    What a performance. We'll catch you next time.

  2. 'A very frustrating fight'

    Indongo wins by unanimous decision

    Promoter Eddie Hearn on 5 live sports extra:

    "Whenever you're fighting in a unification fight you'll come up against great fighters. We had hoped Indongo wasn't that good and it wasn't Ricky's greatest performance. 

    "Indongo punched very hard, had great footwork and was an awkward southpaw. He was too good for Ricky. It was a very frustrating fight."

  3. 'Indongo wanted to dominate'

    Indongo wins by unanimous decision

    Adam Booth

    Former trainer of David Haye on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Julius Indongo was dominant, knew what he was about, kept swinging dangerous bombs and didn't let Ricky Burns in at all. 

    In the last two rounds, when he had the match won, he still wanted to dominate, and like true champions, wanted to get rid of his challenger.

  4. The better man won - Burns

    Burns loses to Indongo

    Ricky Burns, speaking to Sky Sports after his defeat: "The better man won, no excuses. 

    "He was so, so awkward. He was a lot better than we thought he was going to be, he can hit as well. 

    "I'm going to have all the doubters saying I'm finished - but I'll come again.

    "He started the rounds fast and the height and reach advantage meant he was out of my distance."

  5. Post update

    Adam Booth

    Former trainer of David Haye on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Ricky should be proud of his career and now take some time out and take stock. If he decides not to fight again, he's earned the respect of all British boxing fans.

  6. 'It's for the whole of Africa'

    Indongo wins by unanimous decision

    And here is the IBF, IBO and now also WBA super-lightweight champion, Julius Indongo

    "I feel very proud," he tells Sky Sports.

    "My home crowd are watching. It's for the whole of Africa. This is so great.

    "I am very proud for opening my doors and now the world can see me."

  7. Post update

    Adam Booth

    Former trainer of David Haye on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Indongo held it together, maintained his discipline and as far as I'm concerned he's a worthy world champion.

  8. Indongo beats Burns by unanimous decision

    And there you have it.

    Julius Indongo has unified the super-lightweight division.

    Well deserved. A superb performance.

  9. Post update

    Burns v Indongo

    The smile on the face of Julius Indongo tells you he's confident of taking this one.

    The southpaw looks to have held on to his undefeated record. A scintillating performance.

    Ricky Burns claps the crowd. They love him, win or lose.

    But it's the red corner of the Namibian celebrating in Glasgow.

  10. Round 12

    Burns v Indongo

    Ricky Burns is throwing everything into this but he looks shattered. 

    Julius Indongo barely seems to have tired. He continues to burrow forward and looks for the body of Burns as he has all night.

    Indongo skips out of the way of a late, desperate flurry from Burns.

    But that's it.

  11. Round 12

    Burns v Indongo

    Ricky Burns is smiling. But he could be a beaten man.

    Burns hits the canvas again as he dives in and Julius Indongo just ducks out and helps the Scot's momentum take him down.

    He's straight back on his feet. But it's the calm, composed figure of Indongo who's on top here.

  12. End of round 11

    Burns v Indongo

    Adam Booth

    Former trainer of David Haye on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Julius Indongo is showing he is a genuine world champion. He is so far ahead and he still wants to get rid of Ricky Burns. This last round is going to be dangerous for Burns. The atmosphere in the crowd has been finished by Indongo.

  13. Round 11

    Burns v Indongo

    One last big effort from Ricky Burns. 

    He saunters forward with a left-right combination but finds Julius Indongo too quick to catch.

    Burns then absorbs a left-hander from Indongo himself.

    Indongo has the height, the reach. Burns has the crowd, but he needs something more than that right now.

    He goes down onto the mat, that was via a wild swing rather than an Indongo punch.

  14. Round 11

    Burns v Indongo

    Julius Indongo is about to upset the odds unless Ricky Burns produces something we have never seen.

  15. Round 11

    Burns v Indongo

    Six minutes to go.

    Julius Indongo has peppered the body of Ricky Burns all night, but he catches a counter punch from Burns on his way in.

    But Indongo gets Burns on the ropes, works the body and doesn't look like tiring here.

  16. End of round 10

    Burns v Indongo

    Adam Booth

    Former trainer of David Haye on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    This fight has become very repetitive - every round is identical. The brief moments of success Ricky Burns has had are when Julius Indongo has let him off first. Indongo is leading and coming back with one or two more shots.

    He's winning almost every round. Burns needs Indongo to tire.

  17. Round 10

    Burns v Indongo

    You have to say Julius Indongo has looked good tonight.

    Ricky Burns is trying everything he can to find a way round the awkward southpaw, but it's Indongo with the lead and he's the one who can afford to take a step back if he needs to.

    Indongo goes low again, looking for the body. Burns sidesteps his way along the edge of the ring, then finds the middle ground. But he can't land anything on Indongo.

  18. Round 10

    Burns v Indongo

    Mike Costello

    BBC boxing correspondent, ringside at the SSE Hydro Arena

    Ricky Burns is known for his terrific stamina - but even he is tiring. He needs to throw more punches.

  19. Round 10

    Burns v Indongo

    We're into the 10th.

    Ricky Burns is bouncing, but it's Julius Indongo who flicks jab after jab towards the Scot.

    Burns finds a counter jab, and it might have cut the lip of Indongo. Is that a way in?

  20. End of round nine

    Burns v Indongo

    Adam Booth

    Former trainer of David Haye on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Julius Indongo reaches for Ricky Burns

    I have to give that round to Indongo again. Indongo is taller with longer arms so Ricky Burns is trying to close the distance but he is leaving his head at same height. His lack of head movement is making it difficult for him to close the distance.
