    If you asked a random Scottish person who Josh Taylor is, would they know?

    Some would....some wouldnt!! He gets decent coverage in media like the newspapers.....just cos sky havent featured him up till now makes many folk think he is some stranger

    He even received a hero's welcome in Prestonpans which is an obscure little fishing town that nobody in Scotland (outside of Prestonpans of course) has ever heard of before

    He needs a fight in Scotland which is his next mandatory I think.

    No one knows him - he is plain and boring with zero star appeal.

    He will get there, has had rapid success without a huge amount of media fanfare.

    If he was from England he’d be a huge star

    No, I have relatives in Scotland and they`ve never heard of his, his fights wouldn`t have done good PPV numbers in Scotland really.

    I,d say no. Hes not really been well promoted over here. Was with the mcguigans who actually done well with his career in terms of getting him the right fights at the right time etc. But looks like its hard to get a lot of coverage over here if your not named eddie hearn.

    Tbf if he fights in scotland he,d sell out arenas because theres enough that know of him but the average man on the street doesnt know him too well i,d say...more the people that have an interest in boxing.

    I m not sure how many times hes actually boxed in scotland. They,ve not really built his name here. Think with the sky deal his name will get bigger tho...after his last win he started getting more plaudits in the media etc. One or two fights away from a big breakthrough over here tho i think.
