    Some people can’t be helped, as awful and sad as it is. He really had the potential to earn real money with his following built after Fowler / Cheeseman. I hope he gets on the right track and finds peace.

    Hard to see a way back for him really. Would love him to prove me wrong.

    Fcuk sake, looks like he’s bang on the crack pipe. Hope he gets sectioned or locked up as that might be the best thing for him.

    I haven't seen the photos.

    Is the poor lad strung out on heroin or an alcoholic or something?

    Terribly sad to see, he's only a young man.

    Terrible to see and he clearly needs help. He seemed zoned out and medicated in fight camp.

    He clearly has mental health issues but let’s hope someone gets through to him quick.

    Some guys gravitate towards being addicts. Better to leave them be.

    Shocking pictures. I seen someone tweet (maybe one of the Yafai’s) “where are all the people who celebrated Scott’s wins with him?”

    I know addiction can get hold of someone but these friends, family, clingers on etc should be breaking their backs to help this ****.

    Well with respect that's his career over, 30 years old in a month, you can't be doing what he is rumoured to be doing and come back from that at his age, no way, the best we can hope for is he gets some professional help.

    This is now a fight for his life, I wish him well but it doesn't look good.

    Long story short a girl I known who’s ex was his best mate told me months ago he was homeless and addicted to crack, I was saying where are his mates etc, she said Scott just fires up straight away when people try to help him, or at least he did when she’d seen him. I hope he gets back on track, if he is genuinely homeless boxing needs to help him, get him back in rehab ffs. Forget boxing his life could be over soon if something doesn’t change

    Needs serious help. Matchroom and Koogs can't tell the story of Shannon Courtenay's fake mental health stuff quick enough but when someone has a genuine problem they remain silent.

    Jail is meant to be worse for drugs than the street. If only we had enforced boot camps for 6 months on a Scottish Island with counselling alongside it. Give people with serious drug addictions a healthy routine, fresh air, discipline and professional help away from their 'friend's.
