The HBO team should be: Lampley, Larry and Ann Wolf.

Now that would be priceless.

Max Kellerman, Roy Jones, and Gus Johnson would be perfect. Johnson calls the action better than emotional bitch Lampley. Jones gives great boxing insight. And Kellerman is great at doing a Merchant imitation and pissing people off

The Ghost would land four or five straight body shots and all the HBO crew wanted to talk about was the big punch that Berto missed

The HBO crew (especially Lampley) always has a lot of talking point prepared before the fight, based on the fighters' past. It basically forms a script to how the fight will likely play out. Too much time is spent on that script and not enough attention is being paid to what is happening in the ring.

Hey, Yall remember when that Bitch ass MAx, interviewed Mayweather after the Marquez fight. That is when they should of fired him!!! He let Mosley get in the ring and have the mic and when Floyd start talking Max got made and ended the interview like a little bitch. Saddest moment in post fight interviews!!

Jim is way too biased, Max is pretty cool.

Kellerman is the reason I've always wanted James Tony to make it back to the top. If Jame's made it back, he fights on HBO. If he fights on HBO, Kellerman interviews him. If Kellerman interviews Tony, Kellerman says something crazy, and James . . . . Well, you know

Max does seem to hold a bias (attraction?) to fighters of a certain demographic and style, but overall I think he does a good job and brings some much needed YOUTH to the boxing commentary.

Agree on Lampley, he's an absolute disgrace. Kellerman could probably be fixed.

I watched the British version of Ward/Froch with Jim Watt and that other guy (Bunce?) One guy called the action for each fighter as it happened, and they did not interject much opinion. They shit all over anything I've seen on HBO, Showtime, or ESPN in recent years.
