Burns will enjoy noisy backing from his home support
Ricky Burns will make the second defence of his WBO super-featherweight title against Joseph Laryea.
The bout will take place at the Braehead Arena near Glasgow on 12 March and the 25-year-old Ghanaian has good memories of the venue.
Laryea beat Scotland's Paul Appleby on the undercard of Burns' victory over Andreas Evensen on 4 December.
Burns, from Coatbridge, won the belt from Roman Martinez after a battling performance last September.
While Burns turned in the fight of his life to surprise the hot favourite from Puerto Rico at the Kelvin Hall, he lacked sparkle when comfortably seeing off the challenge of Evensen.
And the 27-year-old will need to be sharp against the big-hitting Laryea, who can boast 14 wins from his 18 professional fights.
Ranked 11th by the WBO, Laryea earned 11 of those victories by stoppage.
