Brits with no question

Once an undefeated Brit wins the Commonwealth title he is automatically hyped up as world class and once a Brit wins a paper title he is hyped as the #1 guy in the division.

British fans are better than Americans.

Atmosphere is greater from British fans than Americans; you fat arses couldn't sing a whole song without weezing and risking cardiac arrest.

20,000 of you wouldn't travel to another country to support your guy, it's never happened. That's a flat 20,000 I don't even need to increase that figure on account of your larger population.

Your three best fighters are currently Mayweather, Ward, and Hopkins with Timmy Bradley just outside of that and which of them do you heavily support? None The majority of you are ignorant to talent. Though like everywhere, there is good with the bad. Several of you are great Boxing fans.

Britain gives exposure to all its sports stars, and usually over-exaggerates their accomplishments. However there is a huge difference between the media coverage British fighters receive, and being a full on hype job.

Im British and most of the hype comes from the general public who dont really follow boxing, they just go by what the media tell them and if there is a big fight coming up (haye vs wlad) the general public buy into the hype.

I expect big things from Brook and Khan, Khan would be my favorite British fighter at the moment

We may hype our fighters up a bit but at least our fighters man up and go looking to fight the best

British, hands down. It may be due to some minority who post here but they give bad name to the others.

Not as far as I know I just remember the Australian commentator screaming it as a Danny Green with re-enforced hand wraps hit the corpse of RJJ on the back of the head, and stopped him while Jones was still on his feet.

The legend then got promptly KO'd by Antonio Tarver.
