Bei ihm ist es nur ein Kampf gewesen und ich glaube deshalb auch nicht, dass er Ende des Jahres gegen Wilder boxen wird. Tyson Fury polarisiert enorm, macht aus jedem Kampf eine Show. Wie es für Francesco Pianeta weitergeht, ist nach dieser Niederlage ungewiss. Fury besiegt Pianeta - jetzt Wilder-Fight? Und auch Verletzungen stoppten ihn bisweilen.

The shipyards were the centre of more activity, but many smaller industries produced the machinery needed by the British bombers, tanks and warships.
Increased income, and the more equal distribution of food, obtained through a tight rationing system, dramatically improved the health and nutrition.
After , Scotland's economic situation worsened due to overseas competition, inefficient industry, and industrial disputes. Economic factors contributing to this recovery included a resurgent financial services industry, electronics manufacturing , see Silicon Glen ,  and the North Sea oil and gas industry.

The Atlantic Ocean borders the west coast and the North Sea is to the east. The territorial extent of Scotland is generally that established by the Treaty of York between Scotland and the Kingdom of England  and the Treaty of Perth between Scotland and Norway.
The geographical centre of Scotland lies a few miles from the village of Newtonmore in Badenoch. The whole of Scotland was covered by ice sheets during the Pleistocene ice ages and the landscape is much affected by glaciation.
From a geological perspective, the country has three main sub-divisions. This part of Scotland largely comprises ancient rocks from the Cambrian and Precambrian , which were uplifted during the later Caledonian orogeny.
It is interspersed with igneous intrusions of a more recent age, remnants of which formed mountain massifs such as the Cairngorms and Skye Cuillins.
A significant exception to the above are the fossil-bearing beds of Old Red Sandstones found principally along the Moray Firth coast. The Highlands are generally mountainous and the highest elevations in the British Isles are found here.
Scotland has over islands divided into four main groups: There are numerous bodies of freshwater including Loch Lomond and Loch Ness.
Some parts of the coastline consist of machair , a low-lying dune pasture land. The Central Lowlands is a rift valley mainly comprising Paleozoic formations.
Many of these sediments have economic significance for it is here that the coal and iron bearing rocks that fuelled Scotland's industrial revolution are found.
This area has also experienced intense volcanism, Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh being the remnant of a once much larger volcano.
This area is relatively low-lying, although even here hills such as the Ochils and Campsie Fells are rarely far from view. They lie south of a second fault line the Southern Uplands fault that runs from Girvan to Dunbar.
The climate of Scotland is temperate and oceanic , and tends to be very changeable. As it is warmed by the Gulf Stream from the Atlantic, it has much milder winters but cooler, wetter summers than areas on similar latitudes, such as Labrador , southern Scandinavia , the Moscow region in Russia, and the Kamchatka Peninsula on the opposite side of Eurasia.
The highest temperature recorded was The west of Scotland is usually warmer than the east, owing to the influence of Atlantic ocean currents and the colder surface temperatures of the North Sea.
Tiree , in the Inner Hebrides, is one of the sunniest places in the country: Braemar has an average of 59 snow days per year,  while many coastal areas average fewer than 10 days of lying snow per year.
Scotland's wildlife is typical of the north-west of Europe, although several of the larger mammals such as the lynx, brown bear, wolf, elk and walrus were hunted to extinction in historic times.
There are important populations of seals and internationally significant nesting grounds for a variety of seabirds such as gannets. On the high mountain tops, species including ptarmigan , mountain hare and stoat can be seen in their white colour phase during winter months.
Today, much of the remaining native Caledonian Forest lies within the Cairngorms National Park and remnants of the forest remain at 84 locations across Scotland.
On the west coast, remnants of ancient Celtic Rainforest still remain, particularly on the Taynish peninsula in Argyll , these forests are particularly rare due to high rates of deforestation throughout Scottish history.
The flora of the country is varied incorporating both deciduous and coniferous woodland as well as moorland and tundra species. However, large scale commercial tree planting and the management of upland moorland habitat for the grazing of sheep and commercial field sport activities impacts upon the distribution of indigenous plants and animals.
The population of Scotland at the Census was 5,, This rose to 5,,, the highest ever, at the Census. Although Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, the largest city is Glasgow, which has just over , inhabitants.

The programmes of legislation enacted by the Scottish Parliament have seen a divergence in the provision of public services compared to the rest of the UK.
For instance, university education and care services for the elderly are free at point of use in Scotland, while fees are paid in the rest of the UK.
Scotland was the first country in the UK to ban smoking in enclosed public places. MSPs serve for a four-year period exceptionally five years from — The Parliament nominates one of its Members, who is then appointed by the Monarch to serve as First Minister.

The MOU lays emphasis on the principles of good communication, consultation and co-operation. Since devolution in , Scotland has devolved stronger working relations across the two other devolved governments, the Welsh Government and Northern Ireland Executive.
Whilst there are no formal concordats between the Scottish Government, Welsh Government and Northern Ireland Executive, ministers from each devolved government meet at various points throughout the year at various events such as the British-Irish Council and also meet to discuss matters and issues that are devolved to each government.

Under the Salmond administration, Scotland's trade and investment deals with countries such as China   and Canada, where Salmond established the Canada Plan — which aimed to strengthen "the important historical, cultural and economic links" between both Canada and Scotland.
A policy of devolution had been advocated by the three main UK parties with varying enthusiasm during recent history. A previous Labour leader.
John Smith , described the revival of a Scottish parliament as the "settled will of the Scottish people".
The constitutional status of Scotland is nonetheless subject to ongoing debate. The new government established a " National Conversation " on constitutional issues, proposing a number of options such as increasing the powers of the Scottish Parliament, federalism , or a referendum on Scottish independence from the United Kingdom.
In rejecting the last option, the three main opposition parties in the Scottish Parliament created a commission to investigate the distribution of powers between devolved Scottish and UK-wide bodies.
Opposition from all other major parties led to an expected defeat. Following a referendum on the UK's membership of the European Union on 23 June , where a UK-wide majority voted to withdraw from the EU whilst a majority within Scotland voted to remain, Scotland's First Minister , Nicola Sturgeon , announced that as a result a new independence referendum was "highly likely".
Historical subdivisions of Scotland included the mormaerdom , stewartry , earldom , burgh , parish , county and regions and districts. Some of these names are still sometimes used as geographical descriptors.
Modern Scotland is subdivided in various ways depending on the purpose. In local government, there have been 32 single-tier council areas since ,  whose councils are responsible for the provision of all local government services.

Various other systems derived from common Celtic or Brehon laws survived in the Highlands until the s. Scots law provides for three types of courts responsible for the administration of justice: The supreme civil court is the Court of Session , although civil appeals can be taken to the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom or before 1 October , the House of Lords.
The High Court of Justiciary is the supreme criminal court in Scotland. The sheriff court is the main criminal and civil court, hearing most cases.
There are 49 sheriff courts throughout the country. These were gradually replaced by Justice of the Peace Courts from to The Court of the Lord Lyon regulates heraldry.
For many decades the Scots legal system was unique for being the only legal system without a parliament. This ended with the advent of the Scottish Parliament, which legislates for Scotland.
Many features within the system have been preserved. Within criminal law, the Scots legal system is unique in having three possible verdicts: There is, however, the possibility of a retrial where new evidence emerges at a later date that might have proven conclusive in the earlier trial at first instance, where the person acquitted subsequently admits the offence or where it can be proved that the acquittal was tainted by an attempt to pervert the course of justice — see the provisions of the Double Jeopardy Scotland Act Many laws differ between Scotland and the other parts of the United Kingdom, and many terms differ for certain legal concepts.
Manslaughter , in England and Wales, is broadly similar to culpable homicide in Scotland, and arson is called wilful fire raising.

Scottish cuisine has distinctive attributes and recipes of its own but shares much with wider British and European cuisine as a result of local and foreign influences, both ancient and modern.
Traditional Scottish dishes exist alongside international foodstuffs brought about by migration. Scotland's natural larder of game , dairy products, fish, fruit, and vegetables is the chief factor in traditional Scots cooking, with a high reliance on simplicity and a lack of spices from abroad, as these were historically rare and expensive.
Irn-Bru is the most common Scottish carbonated soft drink, often described as "Scotland's other national drink" after whisky. During the Late Middle Ages and early modern era , French cuisine played a role in Scottish cookery due to cultural exchanges brought about by the " Auld Alliance ",  especially during the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots.
Mary, on her return to Scotland, brought an entourage of French staff who are considered responsible for revolutionising Scots cooking and for some of Scotland's unique food terminology.
