A lazy Sunday trawling through boxrec.com and I was surprised to read, and then check out, that there has never been a Scottish British heavyweight champion.
There have been a number from Wales, the immigrant community is well represented (Bugner, Hide etc), N. Ireland has a former Champ and even my hometown (Doncaster) has two former British Heavyweight title holders. Yet nothing from Scotland.
EDIT-- I have just read, though I have not researched, from two different sources that not only has a Scot never been British Heavyweight Champion but no one from Scotland has ever fought for the British Heavyweight title. Something is wrong with this.

Froch joins Khan & Haye in the "ex-world champions" camp then. At least he can console himself that Ward does look very good indeed.
Been a pretty grim few months for British boxing, with the two Murrays, John & Martin, also coming up short in world fights. Although, by most accounts, the latter was properly stitched up to have his fight with Felix Sturm in Germany called as a draw.
- As featured in The Independent.
"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
Someone distracting the ref whilst his opponent hits him over the head with a sledgehammer would be real interference. He needs to man up ffs.
From the BBC.
Ali's & Leonard's legendary trainer passes away at the ripe old age of 90. Vale.
Just watched a video of the Haye/Chisora "brawl". What a pair of complete tossers, honestly.
..... and now the German police give the incident some sort of status by investigating it
Tbf if someone relatively high profile publicly (and repeatedly) announced that they intended to shoot somebody, I imagine the UK police would do similarly.
Apparently Haye also tried to hit one of Chisora's entourage over the head with a camera tripod, as one does.
Yeah, it was, all jokes aside, much like a brawl wrestling fans are accustomed to seeing. Just crazy.
