Tippex for trainers
Personally speaking, it would be a great buzz to walk into a sports shop, & see a world champion boxer working there. I know, cos I experienced seeing a scottish legend working in a sport shop.
I remember back in the day in argyle street in Glasgow city centre a certain Gary Jacobs worked in a sports store, when he was boxing & in his prime like Ricky. Gary Jacobs went onto fight the P4P no1 Pernell whittaker, AND floor him on the way to a brave points defeat.
I was a young laddie then, & didnt go up to tell Jacobs how much I loved and respected him as a fighter. You know how it is at that age, wheras now I am nearly 40 I would happily approach a boxer in the same situation & get all soppy & starstruck in front of a xmas rush
Put it this way, where else in the world would you get to see a european champion who floored a P4P legend, & a current world champion quietly doing their thing in a shopping store at the weekend in different decades?
THATS why I love scottish fighters
