    how does it disturb the flow of the match??all forms of combat stem from some form of rhythm,look at thai boxing for example the music determines the tempo of the fight.if you look back at the old gladitorial fights they were urged on by loud drums in the arenas which is a possible link to the way we do it in soccer arenas etc to use that as an excuse is just crap.

    It's a UK historical thing, used to support and push your man/team across the line. Part of the entertainment is usually having a rival set of fans, directing derogatory/abusive chants back at you. Cleary in boxing it doesn't quite work as well. The atmosphere was like a witches cauldron. As usual us Brits travelled well and made it a great P.A.R.T.Y atmosphere.

    The band are pretty horrific though I must admit, I admire the air miles they clock up to support the English footy team around the world....but seriously guys .. you need some new tunes, they only seem to have one track in their set list!

    Maybe the next big US fight should be staged in the Las Vegas City Library?

    You're lucky that lot didn't get pissed up and start to riot!!

    I agree. Singing Christmas carols at a boxing match is just downright pathetic.

    If I wanted to hear a bunch of ***s sing and chant in unison I'd turn on a Village People concert. This is not what I want when I'm attempting to watch a pugilistic affair. If you ***s need to be heard so much there are a bunch of psychiatrists that would be happy to listen to you for less than half the cost of the plane ticket it took to export your lunacy to Vegas. Have some goddam couth. There's a national anthem going on for christ's sake!

    The singing was great! My friends and I were talking about how us Americans don't do that ****. Nothing wring with showing National pride.

    I rather have Hatton and Cotto fans yelling like crazy than DLH/Mayweather fans who dont even watch the fight because they are so boring. They just try to see the celebrities at ringside and look up at the jumbotron.

    I love the blue collar boxing fans. I hate the high rollers who just sit ringside and show no emotion.

    Hey we already have Tennis and Golf. Traditionally upper class sports. Getting too much adrenaline in your blood in Tennis and Golf, will often be damaging for you game so ... quiete please!
    Soccer and boxing are traditionally lower class sports and some more adrenaline can change the way its going.

    Even some people wish to compare boxing and soccer to higher artforms like ballet or strategy like chess. The bottom line is go go through punches and land your own, and in this effort it is nice to feel a lot of support - so keeps making noice and singing like hell. Make the atmosphere it is good for boxing and it will get a wider audience that way.

    STop painting AMERICANS with one brush.

    If you ever attended a Spadafora fight in PITTSBURGH, you heard the resounding chanting of SPADDY, SPADDY, SPAADY!!. There's been other ameraican fans in various locations that have chanted, cheered and sang at boxing and in the NFL , Here we GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!! Back in the 70's, etc,

    Yes, international and european fans are louder and its customary for them to be in unison, but that doesnt mean Americans are any less as fans. Who had a problem with the ATMOSPHERE at SRL vs Hearns, Hearns vs Hagler,Corrales vs Castillo, etc, etc, etc,. American fans can have live crowds and it makes THEM NO LESS A FAN if they dont cheer or sing in unison:nono
