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 of the sound when watching an HBO fight, just so my head doesn't explode from all the 100% incorrect things he says.
A good student of the sport is rare. Take this forum for example, most people think they're a good student of the sport when in reality they aren't.. ESPECIALLY during the heat of a superstar fight. If you're of the few who can actually call a fight, Lampley will probably suck but he's satisfactory for the other 90% of fans. HBO is famous for its quality, and they didn't hire Lampley without reason. He generates excitement for the casual fan, which outnumbers the hardcore fan by A LOT!
