Default Hype in action. BS Haye support

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
I'd like to see haye win and believe he has good chance of doing so in the early rounds, but I see klitschko as a favourite. However I saw some of the shit getting posted on haye's fb page (have a good look through, it'll make you laugh how many times Wlad is referred to as a german or a russian) by his fans and it made me wonder, some of these can't be proper boxing fans? they must just be casuals. Which led me to the confirmation that hype is a very effective tool for a fighter and can make a star. I'm not hating, any support is good support for boxing, but hype and biased media combined with the freedom of the internet is maybe why there are so many biased fans of a single fighter here on esb.

"Rob Davis
Good luck David. If you take the same approach as you did against Valuev, and basically run away for the entire fight, then you might not get knocked out until the latter rounds. All the best, it doesn't matter that you are embarressing the UK, you are going to make a shed load of cash, so that makes up for it all!"

hahahahahaha
had me in stitches

This is a chance for David to bring some credibility to himself. I hope he seizes the moment!

Watch this go like Maidana/Morales, with Haye losing, but surprising everyone while he's at it

most of these people know nothing about boxing, they are people who only watch the big hyped up fights.

You hit the nail on the head with hype, a lot of these people think Wlad has been running from haye. They read everything haye says and believe it.

Proof a good portion of humans cannot think for themselves.

Sad? yep. Scary? oh yeah.
