Josh Taylor Awarded Tennent's Golden Can at The Prestoungrange Gothenburg
BOXING CHAMP Josh Taylor received a golden can of Tennent’s Lager in recognition of his 2019 title wins
"Tennent’s serve up their legendary Golden Can to Scottish cultural icons.
"Now among the ranks of Irvine Welsh, Martin Compston, Biffy Clyro, and Jamie Genevieve in the Golden Can Hall of Fame, the boxing champ celebrated his award with a pint in the Prestoungrange Gothenburg.
"On receiving the award, Josh of Haddington said: 'It’s an honour to receive the Tennent’s Golden Can and be recognised for my contribution to Scottish culture – so thank you Tennent’s. There was definitely a fair few pints of Scotland’s finest consumed at the celebration party after the fight.'
"James Hughes, Tennent’s brand manager, said: 'The Golden Can celebrates heroes in all aspects of Scottish culture, and we have been so impressed with Josh’s boxing career to date, completely trailblazing his way to the unified World Title.
'His hard work, talent and determination to achieve success is incredibly admirable and we believe this is just the start for our Tartan Tornado. He represents Scotland on a global stage and with two championship belts to his name, we can’t wait to see what he does next.'
Tennent’s posted a picture of Josh with his can to their Facebook page, writing: 'We were gutted to see Scotland’s very own Josh Taylor miss out on a mention at this year’s Sports Personality of the Year, so we thought we’d do our bit … We’re extremely proud to announce the IBF and WBA Unified World Champ as the latest recipient of our prestigious Golden Can, in recognition of his achievements on the world stage!
'You’re always a champion in our eyes, mate.'”
