Just because you have a flag on your shirt and your team is called "England", that don't mean shit. Not that I'm saying you should support them because of that. You should support whoever you like/admire and someone you can relate to. Someone you feel that represents YOU. I won't feel like I can relate to someone just because they're from the same country as me, whether it's a boxer, football team or whatever else. That's bullshit, and the reason it doesn't make sense is because in this country, often that's the ONLY thing people have in common (it's not really but it appears that way and it's too much work to try and look for common ground). People are much more likely to support someone from the same background as them-social class, ethnicity etc because that way they'll most likely have more in common. Hatton is an example. He made the working class guy feel like he was one of them.
That is pretty much the worst post I've ever seen on here mate. You're way off the mark regarding the football. I cannot even make a reply against it because it's not even understandable. The England team doesn't represent England? Who does then? France?

I'll support Khan. Partly because of nationality (although this is not that important to me anymore,more a fan of the sport in general) but also I've been impressed by how he's pulled himself together. Also fighting a known puncher when you know you've got a shaky chin shows guts.
Edit: Also if Khan looses that chin obssesed pervert Zakman will will swan into the brit forum expecting us to be impressed with his Nostradamus like abilities.The twat.

Quite surprised at the level fo support for Amir. I don't think he'd have had so much a few years ago.

My hatred of Khan has lessened in recent times and so I want Maidana to give him a prolonged beating

Khan for me please.

Hopefully Haroon joins GBP after the Commonwealths and then they have shows on in the UK with Khan, Haroon and Jamie KAvanagh

I think it's getting very old that people are still going on about Khan's "dodgy" chin. He was knocked out by a big hitting Prescott, it wasn't a nobody, Khan fought Prescott when both of them were undefeated you have fighters like John Murray who has yet to fight a single undefeated fighter. He was knocked out because he got too confident and ****y, not because he has a weak chin. Saying he has a weak chin because he got knocked out by a huge puncher is like saying I have a bad stance because I got knocked over by a bus. That defeat has made him the fighter he is now. I hope Maidana catches him a few times so people can finally stop going on and on and on about his supposed weak chin. PS- Khan to win by UD.

Amir Khan is the most high profiled british boxer, at the moment.

When Amir Khan fought in america, he took 1000's of fans over with him.

**** off you cunt.....
I agree with this ^^^

I've never supported a foreign fighter against a British fighter but the more shite Khan tweets the more tempting it becomes.

Still with Khan but only just
