Default If a boxer you DISLIKE OR HATE SAVED YOUR LIFE or your loved one. What now?

A question my mate asked regarding footie players, So I felt applying it to boxing will be very interesting.


Say a boxer you hate or dislike saved your life or that of your loved ones.

How much does this change your view.


SAY you hate Floyd Mayweather, he saves you somehow in a burning car accident.

Say you hate Amir Khan, he saves your mother.

Say you hate Pacquaio, he saves you from a flood or whatever.


What NOW? Please vote

Be advised this is a public vote because I don't want any troll answers. This is a serious question I'm very curious about,

Thank you for your participation

I honestly think most people would be really grateful that they were saved. I know I would. But then again I personally do not hate any athlete. People like to use that word freely to express their dislike for certain athletes, but I don't think most of them really mean it.

:O

But the reason I asked is I always get friends of boxing who's like

DUDE IF YOU REALLY LOVE BOXING YOU SHOULD SUPPORT BOXERS FOR WHAT THEY DO IN THE RING... DUDE.... That's how you should choose your favorite boxer to support.


I agree with that, except what if a boxer had a positive influence on your life OUTSIDE THE RING.


The little kid that carried the Wladimir belt was at first a lennox lewis fan.

But after the belt carrying, he became a Wladimir fan.

I 100% understand that and support that

Ok.. so fine. Say your favorite boxer is Sergio Martinez.

Say Chavez JR saved your life

Who you rooting for?

That's the point of the question

Its easy to 'hate' public figures, celebrities or athletes. But its all just pantomime. U dont really hate them.
If they saved ur life then obviously ur not going to still hate them over some trivial bull**** that they said or how the behaved in the past.
Reality kicks in and u gain perspective.

They dont even have to save ur life. If u just met them, and spoke to them at an informal event or on the street, all these boxers, even Floyd, would probably seem like a fairly normal decent guy.

Ya we get this. Great post btw.

Ok now the question is this.

Say your favorite boxer is Tim Bradley (EXAMPLE)

Say you met Amir Khan. He helps you out irl and all kinds of stuff.

He turn out to be the nicest guy in the world.

He even save your LIFE

NOW SAY

AMIR KHAN FIGHTS BRADLEY

Who you rooting for?

Khan or bradley
