I'm Latin and the UK emberrasses us. Especially Mexican fans, they turn on their fighters so easily. I've been to a few fights where there were big Mexican crowds and they are pretty terrible boxing fans (BTW I'm Mexican). UK fans ride with their fighters to the death. I have to say Puerto rican fans come in second

Gotta give it to the UK...they actually get em excited for Hatton's fights. Lord knows he isn't the most skilled fighter, but a brawler with a HUGE following, is something crazy!!!

Mexican fans turn on their fighters?! Am I hearing that right? That's the first I heard of this Check. I know that when Julio was getting served by Sergio, the crowd got quiet for a while, but that was about it. Sheesh, I never knew this. I thought Mexicans were ride or die fans, regardless. That's wild....

Fickle is the word I'm looking for. They flip on their fighters so fast it isn't even funny, I was at a family independence party for the Martinez fight and I was the only Martinez fan, by the end of the fight they were ready to hang me and chavez lol

And at the ponce de Leon vs broner fight they were cussing him out too cause he lost to broner and then even though Canelo was beating the pale off of Matthew hatton they kept bitching and saying he wasn't good because he wouldn't knock him out and throw more punches. It was ugly. They literally boo'd ponce

I think Puerto rican fans are die hard and UK fans take the cake, at least in my opinion.

hell yeah!!! That crowd that Froch brought against Bute was something special too.

By the way, they didn't give a good angle of the roof after that Chavez-Martinez fight. Lol, Did that noise raise that shit or what in the 12 round?

I think chanting "lets go fucking mental" before anything sets the fans off

I have to give it to the U.K. fans for sure.

Hatton's following is MASSIVE and as Gambit pointed out, Froch's fans were also monstrous i numbers in his Bute fight. One thing is - They are quite dissrespectful. I will always remember Tyrese Gibson singing the US national anthem and the UK crowd booing the hell out of him.

Not to mention calzaghe, kessler, Khan, degale... Those guys have huge followings, I'm actually getting a little jealous. I wish our US following was that good those mothefuckers sell out soccer stadiums out there and stuff, its ridiculous.
