George Foreman- He might have been entertaining, but his points were often off the mark by a good margin. Basically, he had the appearance, but when he actually made more than simple remark it was usually wrong.

Howard Cossell- Was more like a cheerleader once he had his mind made up that he wanted a certain fighter to win. He'd act as if he was smarter than everyone, despite not having any experience in boxing aside from watching it.

Whoever that guy is that redid the commentary on a lot of the older fights. He precalls the action. "Note the snappy 1-2 from so and so and the damage it does"...3 seconds later the said fighter lands a good 1-2. I'd rather not know the punches that occur before they happen.
Good call.
