    lol Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua is the one whose personality is below zero. Hasn't done him any harm.

    I'm glad that Taylor is far too raw & genuine for the Sky Sports twats.

    A home Olympic gold medalist heavyweight KO artist is at a slightly different mass market level than Josh Taylor.

    Boxing fans bubble really is bizarre sometimes.

    The way some of this people go on about Joshua, you would be forgiven for thinking he killed their dog or something.

    Boxing fans are not underestimating Sky's promotional strength.
    SWW is ofc not a glamor division and naturally people pay attention to HWs, but Taylor is among the best the UK had produced in a few years.
    Surely something could be made from that.

    Too late for Taylor. Even sky and matchroom combined couldn't turn some fighters profile around like Saunders or even eubank jr when he was on sky.

    All about the fights - huge fights = huge profile

    BJS wasted his best years and Eubanks Jnr also had far too many soft fights on his way to becoming the IBO and ITV Box Office legend.

    You didnt write you're. You wrote you're'.

    If someone is gonna belittle someone for their intelligence they really should know the difference between an apostraphe and quotation mark.

    Whats that got to do with it?

    I gave an example of a conplete character redevelopment and making someone more unlikeable to one of the biggest names in the game.

    Will taylor ever be as big as aj, course not. But he can become massively more marketable on sky. If they can attract the casual scottiah fan they are on to a winner

    Josh Taylor's achievements in the ring must surely be respected by genuine boxing fans.

    Out of his comfort zone most of his pro career and unified his division away from home.
