Poor opponent for Arthur .
Can tell you john wasnt offered this fight at all just rumours of it happning but none were true. also Johns next fight wont be in Scotland its looking more likely his next defence is going to be down south once again though hes not reallyin fact he would actuallyprefer that after the bad press he got last week in the tabloids up here. Dont know if anyone seen it but was disgraceful the daily record covered some daft story more than they have with all his fights put together. If youtr Scottish and a Simpson fan NEVER buy the daily record again.
