Default Boxers looking on internet before fights.

I've heard it a few times that boxers have a look on internet sites and forums to see how people view there up coming fight. Does this actually happen and if so is that the reason Enzo Macc looked so freaked out when he entered the ring against Haye, I mean some of the shit written on ESB must have freaked him out abit.

I doubt the opinion of some forum junkies is going to mean too much to them. David Haye used to post on here when he 1st turned pro. Does he still even browse the board?

I remember when Haye posted about his first career knockdown on here. I doubt he bothers looking anymore..

Well, we have two fine fighters in Willie Limond & Barry Morrison, both former commonwealth & British champions who are still in the mix for more big fights in the near future who have posted/still post here for a start, theres no doubt fighters have a look at the forums to see what people are saying about them. I know if I were a prizefighter I would!

& heres a wee thought from me about how word on this forum spreads. I am pretty sure that Joan Guzman has been told about some of the things being said by me & some of the lads here about how Arthur is going to beat him, going by the quotes he made recently about how hes 'going to rip Arthurs head off' cos some scottish & british people have said Guzman wont turn up & Arthur will win etc...

Now ONLY on ESB brit forum has anyone backed Arthur to win & been quite vocal about it, my good self & a few more select people here. On EVERY other forum no-one is giving Arthur a snowballs chance in hell of winning, & the press over here have written Arthur off too.
So I am more or less sure Guzman has been told by someone about the ESB lads on here who have been backing Arthur to whup his ass, & the arrogant wee sod is raging! & he even gave ESB an interview recently too saying what he going to do to Arthur, so Guzman is watching, & its nice to think he could be thinking of my words of wisdomm when AAA is hurting him, & he will wish he took the advice & never turned up in bonnie Scotland

I even got grief recently from a guy who claimed to know Barry McGuigan, cos I had a few 'choice words' to say about Barry cos he wasnt too nice to willie Limond & Scotty Harrison.

yer right, the internet is indeed a small world, especially when its boxing thats the hot topic!

I recorded and uploaded the Kevin Anderson vs Craig Dickson fight to another site about 2 hours after the fight. I posted screenshots of Dickson and took the piss out of him for looking like Robocop. The next day i get a PM from Dickson and a picture of him wth black eyes giving me the finger.
