This is BS. The American fans here are less patriotic about their fighters than those of any other country, from what I see. Lots of American fans dislike Mayweather, and virtually everyone here hates on Spinks. Can't find many Jermain Taylor fans (such as myself) owning up these days, either. Boxing is a fringe sport in the United States, the media don't support it, so the fighters here typically stand for anything more important the way Pacquiao does and all the Mexicans, Hatton, et al.
