Default Showtime Mauro Ranallo: Worst announcer of all time?

This guy Ranallo gives me a headache. Dude is SHOUTING EVERY SECOND. NEVER LOWERS HIS VOICE. NO MATTER WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OR OUT OF THE RING.

Me makes me want to get Lennox Lewis back on TV. He is that bad.

The sad part is that he's still an improvement on Gus.

He's not the worst his commentary just hasn't adapted to boxing yet, just like Gus Johnson. Mauro still thinks he's in Pride.

I didn't know he was an MMA guy....he sounds like a Wrestlemania announcer, so I suppose it's not too far to go MMA in terms of TV.

Gus Johnson shouts too, I'll admit that, but I think only when he gets excited. Ranello is ALWAYS shouting....is he always excited?

Agreed with those that like him. In fact, I thought the team with Mauro, Al and Paulie sounded great! The guy is very knowledgeable and brings some excitement.

I'd rather have him than Bob Poppa who doesn't have a pulse. But yeah he screams and there isn't any content in what he is saying. No meat. That gets annoying.

Can't stand him! On top of being an annoying yelling ***** who over embellishes kinda like michael buffers shitty younger brother he used to hate on boxing on the Fight Network in Canada where he was mister MMA. I've heard him side with MMA over boxing on multiple occasions, he doesn't know shit about boxing and I would honestly pick Dan Rafael to KO him in a fight. I hope he doesn't become a regular.
