    Nope. Here at PBC we're all family. Even the whites.

        No, I don’t choose my favorite fighters by race. But, I don’t see anything wrong with fans who engage in a little ethnic pride, it is perfectly normal. British, Mexican, PI, Polish, Puerto Rican, or whatever, should be able to cheer on their countrymen without being labeled racists or bigots. So long as you don’t hate a fighter because of their race or ethnicity.

          Of course we do!

          Anybody who says no, is lying.

          But it’s not like a superior/inferior type of thing.

          It’s more because a lot of fighters, are literally from a different country than the US. For Christ sakes Canelo don’t even speak English, how could you not notice race or nationality?

          Look at Khabib from UFC. Dude has all of Russia behind him.

              Absolutely.
              Why else do they sing national anthems at every fight?
              Why is there a 'Mexican style' of fighting?
              Why are caucasion fighters automatically catapulted to the top of the ratings?

                Exactly. Racism is ignorant, dumb wrong and holds us back as a species.

                But nobody said they couldnít have their preference for race, nation, etc. I personally find mixed black/white women to be the most attractive. Just my taste. Same as thereís nothing wrong with rooting or betting on a fighter due to their race, if thatsís the case.

                Maybe the guy is black but he was raised in Europe so he roots for Euro fighters. Nothing wrong with that. Maybe the guy is American and doesnít agree with the politics in another country so he roots for the American. Nothing wrong with that.

                  I like boxers that have heart, take risks, that don't look to spoil and cheat, that press the action, that aren't afraid to take on the best in their division, that back up in what they say, that do the unexpected, that have great boxing skills, that commit to their punches, fighter that will travel to make the big fights.


                  Their race or nationality mean very little.

                  Lol.

                  One word.

                  Olympics.
