THAIN jokes that he looks so young, when he pops to the shop for a tin of coca cola he is asked for ID.
The 6ft Scot has greatly benefitted from exposure on the mushrooming TV channel Boxnation – and he won over a new army of boxing fans when he outpointed Steve Spence in Motherwell last month.
That performance proves there is nothing youthful about the long-armed boxer’s ability.
Thain’s mother is Filipino, and two years ago he trained alongside his idol Manny Pacquiao on a training trip to the Wild Card gym, Los Angeles.
Among his fans is WBO interim lightweight champion Ricky Burns.
