Incorrect. Anyone with good knowledge of the technical side of boxing can see that a punch isn't landing by the reaction & movement of the opponent's head.
It was VERY obvious during Pac-Bradley, as it was in Pac-JMM 1,2, and (especially) 3.

Likewise, a good student of the sport knows when a fighter has actually been hurt by a punch. Lampley, on the other hand, is literally clueless. Sometimes I have to turn off the sound when watching an HBO fight, just so my head doesn't explode from all the 100% incorrect things he says.

Lampley does have a very nice hairpiece, though.
