He talked the talk but lost to a guy he was supposed to dominate.

Remember the brits put big money on him to win, regardless of the fact that they dislike arrogant *******s. They fully expected him to put on a clinic against Groves.

He'll never hear the end of it.

To be fair Khan has a big Asian following in the UK, so that helps bump up his support, after he got ko'd by prescott i remember listening to some phone-ins and people were ringing in happy about him losing!!.. so i don't agree that he has a massive white following to be honest, it's decent but nowhere near Hatton's imo.

He's just too ****y to be liked. People want him to loose because before the fight has even started, he believes he's already the winner. His defeat against Groves will not help him a lot to get more fans, but if he realizes after this fight that he's not the best, that he needs to improve, and that he should be more modest, fans will not boo him when he enters the ring.

Hatton's appeal was unique in a lot of ways, due to his down to earth, likable personality, his good sense of humour, his penchant for having a drink between fights, etc.

Neither Khan, Haye or Degale are likely to ever achieve his following, but it's not necessarily for race reasons. Calazaghe and Froch, both white fighters with exciting styles, can't touch Hatton in terms of popularity either.

I mean, Groves himself worked in the US for part of his prep for this fight, to his benefit.
Harsh. But you're the sort I'm talking about.

Well at home with the Toneys and Hopkins sorts who spout personal insulting cack from their mouths and the Yank fans lap it up like they've just conducted an orchestra.
I never once said anything about the training standards, I was talking about the differences in nature between Brit and Yank fight fans.

I doubt he'd make the same mistake again.
The reality is - Degale isn't the sublime boxer we all thought.

Degale mentality has to be questioned IMO. Groves wanted to win this fight more from what I saw.

I'm not sold on Degale being this world beater. I think he's been vastly overated and it's got to his head too. Things aren't bright for Degale at the moment.

I'm not ready to write him off yet. Okay, he has his flaws, but a combination of the pressure (which he partially put on himself), the step up in class and maybe a record of slightly flattering opposition thus far just took their toll. Groves obviously entered the ring as the more prepared man, training-wise, career-wise and attitude-wise.

It's an old cliche, but maybe DeGale will be better off for this early loss, and maybe he can avenge it somewhere down the line. Groves looked better than I thought he could tonight, but I still feel that DeGale has a higher ceiling of potential thanks to his athletic gifts.

He was never gonna be a real Andre Ward-esque world beater, though.
