Default I think this may be the last we'll see or hear from Larry Merchant.

Man...he was just donw-right dreadful tonight. Babbling about nothing, confusing the fighters, Lampley had to repeat shit to him several times. C'mon HBO take him out back and put him down with one shot to the dome. End his suffering.

In fairness to Larry, Broner was saying some WEIRD stuff.

"I'd cook him and eat him, no homo." etc.

Kinda' stops you in your tracks.

The Alzheimer's has started to kick in.

I thought HBO were saving Larry for the Floyd/Pac fight that they probably figured would have happened by now, but with Floyd's cowardice, Merchant needs to retire, I don't want to see him in 2013.

He was fine. He just didn't know about the breast cancer awareness.

Larry is old school and will not understand how grown men can dress up in pink etc

I thought it was pretty disgraceful how moments after Banks won Larry chirps up "So the man who started boxing at 15, beats the man who started boxing at 25".... yes, what he said may be factually correct on paper but still a real discredit to Banks achievement.

He made me laugh a couple of times last night. He's honest and blunt and can get away with saying whatever he wants. Ive always liked him.

Discredit? Banks basically said the same thing in that regard. Even pointed out amateur flaws of Mitchell holding onto his waist instead of arms. If thats not chirping about experience I dunno what is.

Hmmm I wasn't the only one who thought Larry's mental sharpness has somewhat declined too after watching him interview fighters last night.

I wish him well.
