    John Simpson was one of my all time greats. Loved him. Willy limond was another great Scottish fighter. AAA never fulfilled his true potential imo, remember when he was getting trained by Roach, all by telephone. He seemed to think that he was going to end up the greatest Scottish fighter rather than working damned hard to get there.
    Tbh Burns is my favourite.

    Great shout, he got the rough end, there was something very honest about him, that old cliche but it really fits.

    Jay Mcfarlane man, he has two losses to Dave Howe and, inside the ring, there's no hard luck stories, I've followed his career and he's just come up short. Outside of the ring it's a mad story, he's the kind of guy I'd want to nonce bash Dominic Noonan.

    The McGuigan’s did a great job with my mate Taylor and matched him perfectly but he could have done with Hearn or Warren promoting his whole career. He bounced around from channel to channel and never really had anyone promoting him. He built his profile on performances alone. When he finally signed a tv deal it was followed by his 2 worst performances so now everyone who’s barely seen him before thinks he’s crap.

    Alex Arthur ended up in an awkward situation being handed a belt outside the ring then losing it in his first defence to Nicky Cook. His weight making stories were pretty brutal

    John Simpson was class, really didn't enjoy seeing Tommy Coyle feasting on his remains considering what a prime Simpson would have done to him

    It is, but there's no such thing as a Scotch boy ( or person) In that sense.

    ;) @ jimbo.

    It's a Scotsman.

    Scotch eggs, homemade ones found behind the bar of some local pubs, are the absolute DON. Not to be confused with the mass produced packaged garbage found in supermarkets and petrol stations. Homemade or nothing.

    Scotch tape, like sellotape but not as sticky am I right? Use case over sellotape; unclear.

    Scotch bonnet chilli peppers; hot.

    Scotch, whiskey. Used to be my weak spot when I was an alcohol consumer. Will probably never imbibe again in this lifetime. Mixed emotions. No regrets.
