Namibia’s Julius Indongo captured the WBA super-lightweight title by beating Scottish fighter Ricky Burns on points Saturday in just his second professional bout outside his home country. Burns, a three-weight world champion, was on the defensive for much of the night against Indongo, who improved his record to 22-0. Indongo was little known outside Namibia until December, when he stunned Russia’s Eduard Troyanovsky in less than a minute in Moscow to win the IBF and IBO super-lightweight titles.
