I am a native Puertorriqueno and I follow all my champs and prospects, but I don't hate any of the opponents if they are black, mexican, british or whatever it is.. I just be a fan of PR fighters but don't hate others (also I like arthur abraham he is the future in 160-168 pounds)

If race didn't exist, Floyd Mayweather would be the most beloved and celebrated boxer in the sport.

All my favorite Fighters are not Black and I am black.

King Arthur Abraham, Pacquiao,Pavlik,Cotto and Valero.

The Mexicanos on here would all be Fans of Pacquiao if he was Mexican lol believe that.
they'd be fans of pavlik also...

i always joke and call pavlik the honorary mexican when he fights...jokingly of course.

i personally admire fighters of any and all racial/ethnic/national backgrounds.


i will root for italian/italian american fighters to support them obviously...but i dont favor one over another because of race.

race isnt an issue with me whether it be in boxing or in day to day life.

I might have gone for a Mexican boxer, maybe even Margarito but his fans are what put me of him. The rest would have been the same.

I like very, very, very few fighters and the few I do I don't identify with on any level whatsoever other than us being human beings.

I would also say that there's a lot of liars in this poll so far.

I don't think people realize how much this really effects the average person. Really stepping out of your shoes and into somebody else's isn't the easiest thing to do, and I suppose this poll goes to show that.

Very true. I think most people have honestly tricked themselves into thinking that they just HAPPEN to root for fighters that they can 'relate' to.
