Default Anybody willing to admit that they like Pavlik because he's white? (Not a flamebait)

I'm just curious. I'd like to think that I'm going for Pavlik in the fight because he's a more dynamic, entertaining fighter. But then when I really, really think about it, deep inside I know that him being white has something to do with it. I'm not sure how much, maybe 5-10% but I'm pretty sure it does. I don't think it's wrong, normally black guys go for black boxers (right?) and I don't find it offensive. So, anybody agrees? Comments?

Brown or yellow If a fighter draws your attention and is entertaining to you WTFin hell does it matter what color. I honestly can't believe I just took the time to respond to this dumb shit.

I am white, Pavlik is white, but that makes no difference. Regardless of whether he was African-American, Asian, African, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Australian, or Arab, I would still be a fan...it all comes down to the fact that I like his personality and his fighting style.

No difference. He's an exciting boxer who has power in both hands & he throws a lot of punches, what's not to like? Okay, his name is Kelly....................

Me too....

I am white and I have rooted for more black fighters, than whites, over the years. This time I am rooting for Pavlik - he just happens to be white - not my fault..........

What is this, 1850? In my ever changing list of favorite fighters, the only white guy who has any real permanence is Jerry Quarry but I'd love the guy if he was any other color or nationality.

It's not important to me, but then again I'm not a big Pavlik fan. I just like him because he's exciting and has interesting fights. Equally, I don't like Taylor, because he's not an exciting fighter and doesn't have exciting fights.

Yes some united states white boys need to represent. Us whiteys are stuck with a bunch of club fighters and bums. Whats our claim to fame Butterbean, Peter McNeely? How many championship caliber American white boys come along? Taylor is still going to win though.
