    Haha I have never seen Scottish people referred to as typically full of themselves, bullies and without class. Although I agree with your assessment.

    The fact he weighs about 9 and a half stones doesn't help. He's a small bloke and they are less important than heavier blokes in a sport that is about fighting.

    Lomachenko is an utter tosser of a guy. Look at the way he behaves when a Western TV camera is not pointed at him.

    Way too much anger in general, I found.

    Yeah, he needs to move to Welter to make a splash.

    I know he's not the worst, he's just a tosser with it.

    No, us English call them Jocks or Scotch.

    I've never called a Jock, a Scotch. Nor have I ever heard someone calling them that either.

    Decent wee interview here - I've always thought Josh comes across as really down to earth - but with the unshakable confidence necessary to be elite, which maybe rubs folks the wrong way.

    I thought he also came across really well when he was part of the Sky commentary team for Usyk vs Joshua.

    And purely anecdotal, but as a guy living in Edinburgh, I've heard that Josh is generally very well regarded from where he grew up.

    I think Sky will go hard on the hyping here. MR have no P4P talent and Josh is the best UK fighter, so even if he is with TR they will put their PR machine behind him

    Surprised about that, when I did basic training all the Scots were referred to as jocks and there were at least 10 of them, they even called their part of the room as scotch corner.

    On Taylor it’s just he’s never been consistently on the television for the casuals to pick up on him. Still a disgrace that the Ramirez fight wasn’t on the tv and on some strange streaming service.
