Hey what's up guys.

When I was driving home from the gym I was wondering, why there are no fighters posting here on Hype's forum. Fighthype has a great name in the boxing industry and it just boggles my mind there are no fighters here. I am not talking about Floyd, Manny etc, but about some more under the radar guys. Up and coming dudes, or those waiting to get their title shot and limelight.
It would be really interesting to actually talk to real fighters about their fights, dissecting them, "helping" them from a fan and viewer standpoint. Those more educated from us could even pop some advice.

What do you think causes it? Ego? Fear? Lack of time? Lack of interest?

Good question Mit.

Me thinks that fighters don't really have the time to visit and contribute to forums. I've seen it done time and time again, they'll pop up, guys will ask questions, and you may not get an answer for days or weeks at a time.

Not only that, but almost all of fighters nowadays, are contractually bound, so they cant truly speak on their next move or opponent, so again, there's no point there. Forums are somewhat taking a back seat to social networks like Twitter, which is leading with Facebook right behind it.

I think it's a good idea for up and coming fighters to find a worthy message board and visit from time to time, but again, forums are a slower forum of communication nowadays. If you've ever called (or listened in) the FightHype radio show and heard trainers and fighters on the line, guys usually freeze up when given the chance to talk to them.

Of course the internet is different, guys can ask whatever they want, depending on the amount of courage that they can muster up behind a keyboard. Still, that goes back to my initial point about receiving a timely answer.
