Thumbs down Are Americans just fair weather fans?

You seen it with ward recently, and now it's happening with Broner, a lot of American fans seem to only support the undefeated fighters.

Chad Dawson used to have a lot of fans on the Internet, but after a loss or two they don't give a **** about him and just slid straight onto the ward bandwagon.

You had it with good fighters like mosley, as soon as they lose all their fans go to some undefeated guy.

Pavlik, chambers, Danny Jacobs, Devon Alexander, Seth Mitchell, Paul Williams

All these guys has vocal fans until they lost.

But now all American fans talk about is floyd, Ward and broner

The poles stick by adamek, the brits stick by froch, the Mexicans stick by their guys, the ricans stick by cotto

Why do American fans abandon their fighters if they lose,?

While some of those fighters have losses, it's hardly a list to prove you aren't a fair weather fan, is it

those are not real fans, plus american fans are divided between black and white fans. nuthuggers are the real fans because they will back there guy to end of his career and then passed that.

americans would have to broken down by race. african americans will always root for another african american. whites will hate on african american, especially the mouthy ones, you could guess what there 4 fathers were up to back in 1600's.

so thats how i see, very few and i mean very few judge a boxer by boxing like its suppose to be.everyone has the idea of what a champ should sound and act like and anything different would be uncivilized.

The guys you mentioned,just because guys became less vocal about them doesn't mean they dont support them anymore, but nobody in there right mind is going to be making threads and talking **** about a guy they don't believe in. For example I hope Trout beats Cotto and Devon beats Brooks. But being an unbias american fan if you asked me my honest opinion are those guys gonna win,I would say no.


As far as Floyd,Ward,and Broner...is it wrong to support your elite fighters more? I think they've earned that right if they are indeed elite
