Question Why do some boxing fans become so obsessed with a fighter?

I am not talking about the typical countryman fanaticism, which is normal you see a lot of boxing fans root for their countryman Mexico, Cuban, Filipino, Puerto Rico, etc. and you also have the fans who just like the boxers style, but they do not defend the boxer when they do something suspect.

I am talking about those who have an obsession with a fighter but it goes beyond just being a diehard fan it's to the point when they cannot criticize the fighter and the fighter can do no wrong in their eyes.
