With the fullest of respect AAA wasnt a ticket seller when he was British and euro champ, FW would put Gary Young on his shows coz he sold plenty Gary was without doubt the best ticket seller in Edinburgh
i remeber Young /McMillan and it was put on in Glasgow , which i personally thought was an oppertunity missed as it could have been put on in Edinburgh and as you say Young is a good ticket seller ...

your point about the last AAA show in attendance figures ,but at least Alex is giving it a stab .

As for Frank putting shows on in Glasgow, yes the Moses/burns card was ,but before that Billy, Burns last two fights were down south because of the low turnout for Burns/Laryea fight .which was ashame but boxing is a buisness i spose...
