That was so funny when Buchannon slagged him off. Nothing you can say when your hero says your not any good.

Buchanon comes across as such a grumpy old man... I think he's still pissed at Roberto whacking him in the balls.

Me & 10 of the lads are going to watch him on the 15th, so thats a minimum of 11 fans

Be able to buy another hit with that revenue.

alex arthur is a good fighter, but he's never going to hold a legitmate belt by any of the top 3 governing bodies weathers its in the super feather division or light weight division,
with the ammount of talent in the feather weight division its hard for him to make an impact, i cant see arthur fairing that well against new up and comers like Yuriorkis Gamboa

Arthur came down to earth big time when Gomez KHTFO.

Once he believed in himslef, but now he's been hit by a big dose of reality he's in boxing for the money and nothing else.

He knows he's no good and nothing more than a European level fighter.

I'm still suprised at the utter shit he speaks now though.

I wish ****** would match him up with Guzman so he'd get KTPO again.

Is he well followed in Scotland? If not is this is a desperate PR routine? Was he misquoted? He sounds like the space cadet kid who used to get battered at school.

Scott, Amir and Enzo, all said to be good lads and all are releasing statements, Eno shot himself on TV though, that make them look daft. It is crazy. They must be catching the same thing their boss has.

He sounds like he has lost the plot. I gave Foster no chance but if Alex's thinking is this muddled what state is his boxing brain going to be in?

The guy should be a Scottish national hero yet Harrison seems, correct me if I'm wrong, to get more respect in Scotland.
firstly Harrison comes from more of a fight city.
Second Arthur is a hibby.
Thirdly the way Arthur presents himself and talks does not go down too well with the Scottish psyche....that's what I think anyway. Not quite so much after the Gomez fight, but before he was a bit smug and full of himself.
He's always sounded deluded though.

I never liked AA up until Gomez did a number on him and after that he wasnt so smug and full of himsrlf anymore and after a while i even started to have a little bit more respect for him but when he comes out with ridicolous statements like this i cant take him seriously anymore.

I am going to to the show next week but only to see the Simpson fight and the likes of Kenny Anderson. Also most of my mates dont like AA either and no one in Scotland really has time for him. I doubt even Dunky will be able to defend him after this!!!

No shock, but i'm a big fan of Alex, he is an excellent fighter, and one of the best sportsmen coming out of Edinburgh at the moment. BUT, even I, taking off the tinted specs have to say he needs to stop with the jibber-jabber talk.

His career is moving at a snails pace at the moment, and ****** is letting him down badly. After the past 4 or 5 fights, I've thought 'great, now he can step up to the world stage'...yet it just isn't happening. ****** seems content with putting him in with domestic up-and comers, strong journeymen etc.

The years are flying past, yet Alex is still talking like he's at the start of some glorious journey. In reality, he's closer to the end of his peak than the start, and there is very little to get excited about on the immediate horizon!

feed him to Khan and lets have a scot v England match up and old AA can get a flat out beating at the hands of a new great talent.
