I don't like fights that end before I have a chance to finish my beer.

I think boxing fans all over the world want the same thing. It's an entertainment sport, no matter what country you're in. There's nothing inherent about European fans which makes them prefer late knockouts, although I do think certain fighters attract non-fans who accept boring fights.

To be honest I'm allways a little disappointed when a fight stops early, mainly because I want to see the fighters box,

But that said unless it is a shit stoppage, a spectacular ko against a good fighter kind of makes it worth it
Kind of like PAC-hatton was spectacular and khan - salita was a bit comeone I paid for this shit
