Most Latino, white American and white European fighters move forward and spend little time retreating. Perhaps it's the way they're taught?? I think the average black fighter will lean towards a defensive style if they have the quickness and reflexes to pull it off. It takes more skill to be a great defensive fighter, but it's highly efficient and can prolong your career.
I have a theory about this.

Black Americans. They wereforce to fight and please the crowd for a very long time that they said screw it i am going to fight for myself. They said screw the crowd i am looking at for my health first. Alot of people don't like me anyway so i am going to make myself famous through hate.

Latinos. I think they represent the "Machismo' type. They arequite outside the ring put fight with their heart inside. They are the opposite of blacks in that they are crowd pleasers. They see the only way to be famous is to please the crowd. While blacks get attention through smack talking and being the bad guy Latinos get fame by being the good guy.

Eastern Europeans. They are quite like latinos outside the ring and calculating like blacks inside the ring. They show less charisma than blacks and latinos, not playing the good guy or bad guy.

White Americans. Like Eastern Europeans they are not as charismatic than Blacks and Latinos. They are quite like Latinos and want to play the good guy but they don't connect with the crowd. They think about themselves like blacks but don't watch out for their health and career like blacks do. It's like they have something to prove They get overly emotional in fights. Whereas latinos put pressure and show courage, white americans are all over the place.
reckless inside the ring, even more than the more wreckless latinos.

No offense, but I think your generalizations are absolutely absurd. "blacks get attention through smack talking"??? "Latinos get fame by being the good guy???

I've never heard such nonsense.

I agree with the judge who gave the fight 115-112, if not another round to Maidana. I am boxing purest but the holding, running along with periodic punching is not boxing.

The biting incident. Mayweather covered Maidana's mouth during a hold...in Mayweather's world the victim should not retaliate...Sorry Floyd, men punch back and bite!

A pathetic showing by Mayweather! Floyd's swollen face is well deserved!

Agree completely. I may have had it one more point for Floyd. Looks like he's aging a little. I hope we get the Pac fight before it's too late.

I have never understood how this pathetic Mortician got that job. What a significant drop off from the days of Howard Cosell.
