    I think we'll have to wait and see what comes out. After the incident Scott was on IG claiming he was jumped by a few of one of the girl's family. You never know with this sort of allegation what has actually gone on and tbh we never will know without footage being made public.

    As far as I'm aware Matchroom have not severed ties with him which would indicate that he perhaps comes out with some sort of credit in this situation but as a boxing fan I just hope he can get himself sorted and get back in the ring.

    Loads of scumbags who have committed terrible crimes box and continue to box. Hell one of Scotland's key players last night in the football had done a stint in jail for battering someone with a baseball bat to the head! Unfortunately these things get glossed over when it comes to sport.

    His original court date is today, whether that’s changed I don’t know.

    No coincidence he’s vacating before his court date.

    I’ve posted stuff on here in the past regarding the incident.
    I’ve heard nothing of note since tbh, it’s all gone very quiet. Couldn’t even tell you if he’s in court today, today was the original date set for the trial though.

    I remember that. There were these odd few days during the previous lockdown where he was really active on IG.

    It seems that he had been at a Sporting Chance clinic as suggested by Hearn. After coming out, he was supposed to be staying at a property in London associated with Hearn.

    Then one morning in the early hours he randomly posted how he was heading to Preston. Next thing you know he was posting he’d been arrested.

    I’m not psychic but let’s be honest we know the way the world works. He’s probably gone around to see this girl who wants none of it. The brother has piped up, proceeded to get a hiding at which point his mum and sister have started swinging stilettos and throwing plates at Scott. Scott pushes them/holds down and a fingernail scratches one of them on the hand. Police come and arrest the lad who can fight and the one who can’t gets off cos he’s a dweeb cowering holding a tissue to his nose. Scott is now branded a wife beater because of something like a hand scratch.

    As I say I’m not psychic but this, in my experience happens regularly and is certainly more likely than Fitzgerald going in throwing lead upper cuts and overhand back hands to his ex and her mar.

    So he went to jail for breaking bail conditions for something he didn’t do. Great.

    Is it still likely to be, as ordered, James Metcalf next?

    Very simple in that just got back in the gym and would not have been ready for a British title fight within the time scales we were under . Still think the best L-MW in Britain so in the future be nice to win it again , defend once and then own the Lonsdale belt
