Re: Why all the hate for Max Kellerman?
Why all the hate for Kellerman? Let's start with the fact that unlike qualified commentators like Larry Merchant, Steve Farhood or Al Bernstein, he never worked as a boxing journalist prior to getting handed a job at ESPN. Nor did he have any in-ring experience as a participant or trainer, like say, Emmanuel Steward or Roy Jones.
No, Kellerman is some punk, plucked from cable access obscurity for no reason other than his wealthy family knew Bill Cayton, who sacked the great Al Bernstein at ESPN to put this unqualified twerp on the air.
To be a good boxing commentator requires seasoning, and paying dues in the trenches, something this punk will never have. He should go back to making no-talent rap videos, and talking shit on cable access, It's exactly where he belongs.
