Default Re: Edinburgh / East of Scotland Boxing

If Josh Taylor returns from the Olympics and goes pro he could be the boost that Edinburgh needs to sell tickets, especially if he gets a medal.

There's another Amateur middleweight called Tommy Philbin from Edinburgh who has an electric style for the pro's and would have won the Scottish Championships this year had it not been for pulling out of the semi's due to an operation. If he turns pro soon enough he will sell a lot of tickets IMO.

John Thain also has one of the most likeable personalities in boxing, if he keeps winning and continues to be impressive, he could become a big ticket seller, he's got an entertaining style too.
