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 donít hate a fighter because of their race or ethnicity.
    This is bang on . Good post

    I do not but many others do. It's a natural reaction. Just look at Danny Garcia failing at Spanish so he could get in the Puerto Rican audience.

    always root for anyone vs mexicans basically, usually because they are nationalistic and racist af and get away with it.
    And this is racist prick.

    Bingo! As long as you donít hate fighters because of their race/ethnicity I see no problem showing pride in your Cultural heritage and rooting for them.

    Of course not. I close my eyes when i see fights and close my ears during the national anthem.

    I see nationality. I look for where a fighter is from. But not race.

    I dont view boxing at all from any racial standpoint ever . I've had all sorts of favorite fighters that I've followed for years all from differnt races and backgrounds . For me it has nothing to do with the sport . HOWEVER boxing has had a racial undertone since its gloved beginnings in the late 1800s and before . I think its ****ed and I dont agree with it whatsoever but it has been present in the sport for 130 plus years unfortunately , so its nothing new. I think its totally acceptable to cheer on your countryman tho . Nationality is totally fine imo
