Default Support American fighters

I have noticed as of late american boxing fans have turned a cold shoulder towards american fighters the bashing of Floyd Mosley Paulie etc why is this,maybe if we supported fighters from are country like we did with ray leonard dela hoya sweetpea maybe boxing would have a resurgance.

unlike most other countries, the USA actually has more than one great fighter at a time lol. even Mexico right now is hurting.

USA: Mayweather (#1 or #2 in world), Hopkins (#3 in world), Mosley (top 6 in world), Williams (top 10 in world), Dawson (top 10 in world), Ward (close to if not top 10 in world), Bradley (close to if not top 10 in world)

I mean the only other fighters getting pound for pound consideration right now are Abraham, Marquez and Cotto unless I've totally forgotten someone.

we also criticize our fighters whereas Manny can do no wrong in the Philippines even though he's ducking a test for an illegal substance. Margarito is still a god in Mexico despite being caught attempting to cheat. Puerto Ricans still think Cotto is an all-time great.

the point is, when you have few of something, you appreciate it more. the world expects americans to dominate boxing, so they criticize them when they don't instead of cheering them when they do.

The problem is, our biggest American fighters are cowardly obnoxious loud mouths.

I love supporting American fighters, but I can't support people that have no honor.

I support all fighters. It doesn't matter where they come from. If they do good or bad, I call it as I see it. There are great fighters from everywhere.

It's true that the fans don't support the fighters across the board as Americans even if the media do hype them up. The entire UK, Puerto Rico, Ukraine, Philipines, Denmark, Germany as nations get behind all of their boxers.

A good example is Paulie Malignaggi who has the Italian-American support in NY, but that's where it ends. Mayweather has a small section of black support but even they don't like him, he gets more love in the UK just for being Hatton's colorful opponent.

The US has this thing outwardly about being proud to be an American but when it comes to boxing, I think it's fair to say the different cultural communities tend to segregate their support.

nice post man good points, but i still think we should show more pride its a shame that guys like pwill hopkins dawson etc have a hard time putting asses into seats,when paper tigers like hatton are propped up to almost legendary status in there countries.

Paper tiger? Hatton beat the man to become the man, he also beat Urango, Collazo, Malignaggi, show the man some respect.

The US has this thing outwardly about being proud to be an American but when it comes to boxing, I think it's fair to say the different cultural communities tend to segregate their support.
We should have pride in guys like Mayweather but because he is not a ko artist we throw him to the side,there is almost no respect for a technical fighter here in america.
