The issue with De La Hoya is he defeated El Maromero Páez and César Chavez (both very beloved and praised by mexican media).Also De La Hoya was dressed like this:, there is no surprise mexican media wasn't happy. Mexicans will root for the native mexican over the mexican-american, that's 100% true. But there are no mexicans in heavyweight, so Cain doesn't have any competence there.

Yes, some mexicans are stupid enough to hate mexican-americans. Specially in the north, but Mexico City is a different animal. The venue is Arena Ciudad de Mexico, it has around 22k seats. In the city live around 23-24 million people. And we have a lot of big Latin American communities, so I'm pretty sure the event will be full.Mexicans are all about the hype. Televisa controls the media and knows how to produce hype... let's see if they invest in Cain. If they do, Cain would be massive success.

I wonder if Cain's ability to speak perfect Spanish is gonna matter when he is smashing Werdum's head in like he did to JDS the last two times they fought.

True. Mostly Juarez/Chihuahua. And things have settled big time since El Chapo settled Juarez as his. Though, I wouldn't be surprised if cartels saw an event like this as an easy cash grab.

I get a lot of hate from my own family because I speak English when they're around. I read, write, and speak it fluently. I tell them to learn English they've been here long enough. Not to mention that my own relatives in Mexico treat me like shit because I was born here and I am not considered a real Mexican by them. They call me a gringo lol wtf?Fuck em all. Integrate or go the fuck back to Meheeco.

not true, at the end of the day mexicans will always root for the hispanic. they have more in common with spanglish cain than with brazilian spanish speaking werdum.
