You know me slip, I will put a positive spin on all things scottish, & I would argue that from one angle, & one angle only Pernell throws a big shot, Jacobs lands a cheeky wee hook to the upper ribs, Whittaker off balance hits the canvas, & Jacobs deserved the KD. Whittaker punching the canvas? Most would see it as ****ed off at a bad call from the ref, the ref & I however would see it as Pernell frustration at being floored by the kid

That fight gives me goosebumps every time I watch it, a scotsman fighting the P4P numero uno, when I was old enough to remember it. Its so sad that hardly anyone in the UK nowadays knows anything about the fight, considering Jacobs gave Whittaker a better fight than Hatton did Mayweather & Pacquiao. Not a diss at Ricky, just ****ed off that this fight wasnt even picked up in Britain, I had to find out the result from a local rag back in the golden era of british boxing, but internetless... these kids dont know bloody good they got it nowadays!

I could go on & on about the fight itself, the aftermath, & a certain sweet pea giving Gary Jacobs a phone call out of the blue many years later!

No-one really cares though, & how sad is that?
Love the avi!

That is the smallest head compared to body size I've ever seen
