Heard a lot of good things about him, he beat a lad from our gym in the final of the Scotttish. My coach really thinks highly of him.

Good learning for him.

Certainly gives him a heads up on a somewhat awkward style.

Great experience for him, although I think there are plenty local guys who would give him a great spar, but all the same a great trip

Don't know much about the lad, but can only wish him the best of look and he's taking the necessary steps to improve as a young fighter, great to see.

There are lots of good smaller lads in scotland, SR Russell, Badger Hughes, and a great wee fighter Ricky Wright who is a great prospect, to name a few. Also lots of high quality AM guys, go to the Barn in Coatbridge and they are handy young fresh fighters. Just a thought, but it is impressive he is going abroad for sparring.

Heard a lot about Ricky Wright but not so much over the last couple years, any idea why it didn't work for him with the GB squad?

This would be a great addition to the bill. Seen them fight each other as amateurs not a couple of times.

Let's hope he does both, aforementioned it's hard to replicate what these Thai's bring to the table so it'll be good for him.
