Default Re: Why are British fighters treated the worst?

I never really go on the general only if I was extremely bored and the Brit forum was quiet, there are too many threads to keep up with. The few times I had been on there it was largely obnoxious american's that there is little point in debating with as they will rarely take your points on board or offer much interesting discussion back. They all slate Lewis then when a Klitschko argument comes up do the "Lewis TKO6" thing!

I can see why they think Brits are glass jawed as most of our fighters that appeared on American TV have been stopped in the last couple of years with Froch aside. High profile brutal KO's of Hatton (twice) and TKO for Khan against Garcia, plus to a lesser extent Murray, Macklin, Barker all getting stopped on american soil recently. They're not schooled enough in British or world Boxing to remember the chins of Clinton Woods, Eubank, Naseem Hamed, Calzaghe etc. Even Lewis, for a man with a glass jaw seemed to take Vitali and Holyfields best shots extremely well!
