smh.


I supported Wlad over Haye, because Haye is also a total twat. Khan can be a twat, but Floyd is the GOAT TWAT.
Genius boxer. But a ****.
I think FLoyd needs to take a bit of a risk, something he doesnt usually do, he is calculating and trys to get the odds in his favour like a mathemetician or accountant.
Floyd needs to come to England and fight khan and id support khan of course.

He(Mayweatherfan11) watched the post fight Floyd press conference interview with Gareth A Davies telling Floyd he sold more than any of Khan's fights...It sounded like complete bs.

Khan would've sold more when he was with SKY with the exposure he got when he was with them. In comparison to Floyd on a unknown channel without hardly any promo.

I'm not claiming Khan has a huge fanbase, I'm saying British fans will almost always back a British fighter, particularly against an 'outspoken' (and that's being kind) American boxer.

I was referring to the casual fans for whom personality and behaviour plays an important role in who they support.

Cool

If you're from outside the UK and saying things like ' Of course they will support Amir' etc. You need to stfu.

Basically, the PPV fans will get behind Amir. He's a nice guy to the public sure but doesn't show the appreciation like Hatton or Calzaghe, and hasn't half the fanbase they had. So they will be behind him as long as the Union Jack is flown with him.

I myself a Floyd fan since he beat Hatton. He showed great respect for Ricky and this really did turn a lot of the public around on their viewpoint of him. My friends and I are quite serious boxing fans and Mayweather is pretty much all of our favourite fighters.

Overall I think that the UK fans will be split 65-35 in way of Amir. Simply because they choose not to follow boxing.

It seems only fans from the UK should comment on this topic, but in my opinion (which shouldn't mean much) I think Floyd would have tons of support and possibly equal if not greater. Khan ain't no Hatton, or Hamed for that matter, and it seems Floyd and UK boxing fans have really taken a liking to each other. He's even said he feels more love and respect out there than here in the US.

Fair enough.

However I do believe that in this case Khan won't receive the backing that one would think. I just don't believe they feel that affinity towards him, even if his is flying the flag for Britain.
