Also, Bossk ends up at odds with the great Dowutin big game hunter known as Grummgar (first seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens at Maz Kanata’s castle). While Grummgar demands that Bossk fight with honor, the lethal and cunning Bossk cares little for honor as long as victory is achieved, and his violent response seems to reflect the attack of Captain Gorn, who looks a lot like a reptile.

However, it has long been confirmed that Bossk’s yellow jumpsuit has been recycled from an episode of Doctor who.
