Default Which nation is the most susceptible to HYPE?

Most nations hype fighters, some more than others.

Which nation do you think eats up HYPE the most?

Which nation consistently produces HYPE that can't hang on the world level?

Please let me know what you think.

I'm not sure if I'd call it hype but the English are extremely loyal fans.

We do love a hype job in Britain. I don't know who falls for it these days, must be the younger fans.

An example last night in the Tyson Fury fight one commentator said Rogan was the "Irish" Rocky Marciano!
I burst out laughing at some of the **** the commentators were coming out with, they were trying to make out that Tyson going Southpaw was like the second coming.

I just laughed at this.

I can only speak for what I know, and I live in England, the English people can be ****ing morons for hype, the way they reacted to David Haye's hype of his fight with Audley Harrison ends this thread, and also their credibility.
