Re: Who is the best Scottish fighter of all time - Buchanan or Lynch?
I think people are refering to Burns getting a couple of Big fights and coming out the winner. So from an achievement place (SO WRONG), many people would start calling Ricky Scotland's greatest. EVEN IF it happens it is still so far from the accurate truth that this is all to often one of the most damaging indiscretions afforded in boxing today.
there were simply better Era's & better fighters and a far greater talent pool to choose from during those times, even in Scotland, never mind the entire Globe.
Burn's isn't even the best to come from his home town nevermind Scotland.
Gilroy & Lafferty have already been mentioned, but there was also, McGoldrick, Clements, little Joe Connelly and others too.
