if you knew anything about boxing you would know that non-americans wernt even allowed the belt for long periods as it was mafia controlled and if it left the usa they couldnt make money - source: Boxing Confidential
how come where sugar ray robinson came here 3 time she got beat...3 times? how come when surgar ray leonard left the usa he got beat by duran? why do you think americans like mayweather, broner and ward are refusing to leave? because they wont home advantage and they are pretty much gutless.
****serious question*** ....do you honestly believe that if every american had to go to the UK for title fights that the americans would have as many titles?
Puerto Rico has only 4 million people and have more champions and hall of famers than Britain could ever produce..
Sugar Ray Robinson's first lost was to Lamotta in Detriot, not sure what you're talking about. He traveled to the UK and lost to Randy Turpin well past his prime in a points decision, and knocked him out the next fight. Leonard traveled to ****ing Canada in his fight against Duran. His home residence of Maryland to Las Vegas is a bigger trip than Vegas to Montreal. Duran himself was from Panama.. he never traveled to Canada either. Your bias is insane, lol. Not sure if you're right in the head honestly. Don't be mad that the biggest British stars got exposed by Americans.
