I think if you get the mexican following on boxing, lol, if you get labeled a a mexicutioner , youll get sucessful in boxing just for that, lol, puerto rican fighters get sucess due to the mexico vs pr rivalry, lol, that alone brings instant following to many of their fighters, lol, many other countries follow boxing but many those fighters never travel here in america and never get the mexican crowd to see them against a top mexican, i dont know why we as americans dont show no love to the american fighters, i personally dont like many american fighters cause most of them just try to box and not fight, paul williams and shane mosley were fighters and they never got the american support as fighters, they never were a draw, mosley only drew in big events sometimes but his sucess was based on the de la hoya victory(mexixican american fighter) win
This seems like a follow up of your discussion about Broner selling around 4K seats and TMT promotion ability to draw mainstream.
If you see the numbers made by the biggest Americans not named Floyd, they cant sell 10K seats in their hometown. It has been mexicans. For a guy to sell less than 10K seats in their hometown it shows that it doesnt matter how good you are if you dont have the right promotional company behind you. It is stupid to think that TMT will be able to do the same thing TR have been doing for ages when they dont even have the stable to make in-house fights or the talent (outside of Floyd) to sell.
Compare to latinos/hispanics, look how good Narvaez do in Argentina. He has a big following there. Canelo and Chavez were drawing big numbers without even being champions. JuanMa Lopez was selling out in PR. Miguel Cotto Promotions are doing good numbers with D level fighters.
And lets not talk about European and Asians.
