Burns is struggling to find footage of opponent Andreas Evensen
The man who aims to take Ricky Burns's world super-featherweight title says the surprise element could be decisive in their upcoming fight in Glasgow.
Columbian-born Andreas Evensen is the Coatbridge man's first challenger since he beat Roman Martinez in September.
No tapes have been found so far of Evensen's 14 professional fights.
"The surprise element suits me very well," said 24-year-old Evensen. "Ricky is a very, very good fighter, but I think I can beat him."
He takes on the WBO champion at Glasgow's Braehead Arena on 4 December in the biggest night of boxing Scotland has seen in almost a decade.
I'm used to fighting tall fighters with long reach. I'm also used to being the underdog
Evensen has won his last five fights by knock-outs and boasts a professional record of 13-1.
And Burns now knows the man who moved to Norway from South America as a baby is more Latino than Scandinavian in his boxing approach
"I never back off, have good stamina and power in my punches," he said as the boxers got to know one another via a telephone conference.
The two fighters were supposed to meet face-to-face in Glasgow on Thursday, but a back injury to none other than promoter Frank Warren forced that to be re-scheduled.
"I have an aggressive style in the ring," said Evensen, who also believes being shorter than the Scottish World Champion will help him.
"I'm used to fighting tall fighters with long reach. I'm also used to being the underdog."
Burns is the ninth Scottish boxer to become world champion and the first since Scott Harrison fought in front of sell-out crowds at the Braehead Arena during the early 2000s.
