    He's been handled fantastically in terms of fights and career progression...... hence undisputed in what 17 or 18 fights?

    Promotionally however..... he's not been pushed. So we have a fantastic fighter on our hands but with a limited profile.

    Now he's with SKY hopefully he'll get the push and backing he deserves.

    No problem. Yes I bet most had no idea he turned pro across the pond and had already fought over there x 3 before his last fight.

    Me too

    JT is the second greatest Scottsman after Pacquiao.

    As someone whose spouse is Scottish, the answer is no - the average person in Scotland doesn't know JT.

    If he fought in Scotland next he'd still get a huger crowd - assuming a reasonable media promotion the Scots will be only too willing to show up and support him.

    The fact no domestic broadcaster in his country picked up the unification fight against Ramirez is telling about he is not as well known as he should be domestically. He deserved better than that. I suspect he may even be slightly better known in the USA.

    People say he’s boring not likeable etc none of that is true. He simply has been promoted very poorly. Top rank have done a good job guiding his career but they have no presence in Britain. He’s much better off now jumping ship to match room.

    Crawford isn`t a star, he`s pretty unknown to casual sports fans.

    So unknown in Scotland he could rob a bank without a mask.
