Default Re: Why do so many American fighters claim foul play

Jeff Lacy was practically dumped overnight, and will never be a superstar again, but with proper fan support he could be a world champion again.

The only way for American boxers to escape this fate is to have a good excuse. If American fans were as fiercly loyal as fans in other countries, then American boxers wouldn't have to spout so much bullshit to try to save their careers.

After all, that's how it used to be- Americans didn't lose all hope in Joe Louis just because he lost to Max Schmeling, and as a result they got arguably the best heavyweight ever. Aside from not being labelled "whores", the reward for loyal fans is that their boxers often learn from their loss and improve. Not everyone can be an undefeated boxer; in fact, probably less than 0.01% of all boxers ever have had less than two losses.
Very astute post. You're absolutely 100%correct and extremely perceptive Mr Kurgan!! Americans always dump their 'losers'
