Default Who will be rooting for the underdogs?

I’m pretty indifferent when it comes to these champions with the large and passionate fan bases (GGG, Canelo, AJ, etc..)

I like watching prospects and contenders more for some reason

anyway these fanboys have got me rooting for the upset in the high profile fights just to shut them up.

Anybody with me?

I'm not rooting for the upset because I wanna see the Canelo rematch and a BJS unification fight but I think Vanes is gonna bring everything he has. I expect him to get stopped but it's gonna be a firefight for a while I think.

I definitely know what you mean, seeing fanboys acting the clown makes me want to see them eat humble pie. And I do think that not rooting at least a little bit for the underdog is the sign of a guy with no soul, dramatic upsets are some of this sport's crowning moments.

It's not a hard and fast rule though, I can think of exceptions for sure. I didn't root for Khan against Canelo for instance and I doubt many other people did.

Yeah I donít think Van has a chance and there is no guarantee that Canelo fights G next anyway.

I think Van will definitely bring all he can and with G loosening a step it should be entertaining while it lasts.

The upset I wouldnít be surprised with would be if Povotkin beats AJ if they fight next, and the funny thing is I like AJ but some of his fanatics bug me

I donít put any stock in what people say either, I just like the damage control after their heroís fall.

Boxing thrives when fans follow certain boxers. Without that boxing dies. So doesnt bother me when boxers grow a fanbase. Whether its srl, odh, trinidad, chavez, mayweather, pac, GGG, hearns, canelo, AJ, etc. Thats what boxing for entertainment (on tv) has to have in order to stay on

It also doesnít bother me when boxers have solid fan bases, but the fanatics are the ones that amuse me.

Iím a fan of the sport, I enjoy watching certain fighters more then others but at the end of the day all fighters canít go on forever so there will always be someone else to watch, but certain fanatics after their hero falls they no longer follow the sport.

I just like watching a good fight no matter who is fighting.

The sport will never die because there will always be the next big thing
