When will this racial issue die on these forums - who cares about color?

Whatever, try bringing Euro dominance in the heavyweight when talking to a casual boxing fan who's black. You will hear that it's just because football, basketball being popular. No way Russians are just better fighters.
I didn't say that's the _only_ reason I like Pavlik. I like him for the reasons mentioned above and for being a regular guy without a chip on his shoulder.

Stop with the political correctness. It's not like I'm bashing Taylor. I'm not suggesting that all Pavlik fans share my view either. I'm just asking. If you don't like my question see the 4th option in the poll.

A whole forum of people willing to admit they like Pavlik because of his skin color.

Im white and my favorite fighter of all time is Tyson, but after watching the countdown to Pavlik/Taylor I feel I have more in common with Pavlik so Im rooting for him. I still feel Taylor will beat him by UD though

makes no difference to me.

Just put my name down for kelly on the month off thread. but to be honest if germain comes out and puts on a show there will be few people happier then me. he is one of my favourite fighters but I just think that its his time to lose and kelly's time to win.

On a personal level his skin colour makes no difference to me. I'm white but honestly I'd probably way rather hang out with taylor he seems like a realy straight up dude. He's got an engaging personality. he doesn't take himself too seriously, he doesn't have a big chip on his shoulder. And he seems like a pretty mart guy. Kelly's a nice guy but he's boring and he comes across as an idiot.

Too many snowflakes on this thread. I'll come back when there is more color..............kidding of course. Nothing against Pavlik, I'm just a Taylor guy.

I think Pavlik is getting love because of JT's lackadaisickal fights lately. Otherwise hes just another white dude...Its not like theres a shortage of them

More than anything im a fan of underdogs and historically speaking White fighters are underdogs.

The main reason im rooting for Pavlik is because he is more exciting than Taylor and most other fighters no matter the division.

I have no problem with Taylor and never have he is a class act all the way.The one knock i got on him is the same as everyone else.His recent fights were ugly and he didnt look like "the man" at Middle.

1) I can't see what xenophobia has to do with irrational love of someone. Xenophobia means nothing of the sort.

2) There is nothing irrational as to why I like to watch Kessler. Why do you hate him? Why do you hate danes? Are you a xenophobe?
