Ricky Burns is happy to be an underdog again ahead of his world title defence against Terence Crawford.
Burns, a two-weight world champion, has not suffered a defeat for seven years, but the bookies are still tipping Crawford to rip away his WBO lightweight title on Saturday, live on Sky Sports.
The Scot accepts he was far from his best in his last fight, a controversial draw with Raymundo Beltran, which saw him floored in the eighth round and left with a badly broken jaw.
But he proved his doubters wrong in the past with wins over Roman Martinez and Michael Katsidis, and the Coatbridge fighter plans to shock Crawford in front of a packed out Scottish Exhibition Centre in Glasgow.
"I've been made out to be the underdog in some of those other big fights as well. It's just taken more pressure off me."

"Obviously fighting at home in front of 10,000 fans, that's big enough as it is.
"I always try and put that in the back of my mind. I know things are going well in the gym so I'm just hoping to go out there and put on a good performance because I'm due one, especially after the last couple of fights."
