    True. Also, The New York Times once commented that the atmosphere at a English football game made its "American 'football' counterparts appear in the middle of an epidemic of laryngitis". :lol:


    They're just to busy eating to make a noise.

    it was his strategy...it was his plan...he didn't just wake up in the middle of the fight and said...oh...I know what...I'll try for the body...

    Yeah it was really silly for them to sing and have a band. Hey news flash morons there's a fight going on in the ring in front of you. I would have thrown my beer down that tuba chute and drown that idiot. And all the singing Castillo probley quit cause he didn't want to hear that **** anymore.

    LOL, taking tips on how to support from the yanks.

    These are people who wear foam hands and jab the big finger in the air as a form of support, or put face paint on their bellies. People who wear giant nacho hats and have nuts, burgers, hot dogs, drinks and ice creams brought to them at sports games. People who pay an entrance fee and then watch the big screens.

    You cannot deny having a massive singing element provides Hatton/Cotto etc. with a massive adrenaline boost, and completely intimidates their opponents.

    However, the singing is what all football/boxing fans, America excepted do.

    Can you imagine 8000 Americans flying to England to support their best fighter? I doubt 100 would make the effort.

    Breaking out in song (especially the crappy songs the British fans were singing) is just not appropriate for a boxing match. Yes, it works for Soccer. It meshes well with the pace of the game (which is generally one that puts me to sleep) and the general atmosphere of this kind of event. Boxing is a unique spectacle. Having a band in the audience disturbs the ebb and flow of the match. It clashes horribly with the Las Vegas fight culture. I could go on and on. Basically it just sucks :)

    In any case, good win for Hatton.
