Merchant was great, but is now too old.

Kellerman is improving and helps create a good atmosphere.

Lampley also use to be great, but is now clearly on the downslide.

Bob Papa is solid.
Al Bernstein used to try to get Scotty Olson's name into every conversation, even if he was discussing the heavyweights.

All he would screach was, HE'S RIGHTY! NOW HE'S LEFTY! NOW HE'S INSIDE! NOW HE'S OUTSIDE! I just wanted to kick his ****ing teeth out It's got to be a given that Bernstein & the Kellermans of this world had to have smoked the bosses **** to get where they are
Thank you. I honestly thought I was the only one who thought Bernstein was an idiot.

That said, for pure stupidity and cringeworthiness, no one can touch this muppet:

I don't get all the fuss about nuthuggin commentary. They been doin it for yrs for their house fighters and they'll never stop.

I've never let it bother me in the fight. LL sucked on commentary, not due to nuthuggery, but just plain bein bad on the mic. Favoritism I can put up with. It don't interfere with my enjoyment or scoring of the fights. At the end of the day, the fighters decide the outcomes. What the announcers are sayin don't mean jack shit.

Replace that unqualified clown Kellerman with Steve Farhood and I'm with you.

HBO needs to remedy its mistake in hiring that dweeb and get a real commentator like Bernstein, ASAP. The sooner Kellerman is giving his walking papers, the better off boxing will be.

He may not have paid his dues the old-fashioned way to get there, Zak (and he does often wear his fanboy agenda on his sleeve, and develop unseemly man-crushes on certain boxers...and he's got that weird bug-eyed thing going on) but you've gotta give him his due - the man knows his boxing. He's also far more capable of articulating himself intelligently than Merchant or Lampley at this point, and unlike Papa has more of a personality than an over-baked holiday fruitcake.

[Insert Berto CAWK sucking comments]

Jones: "So are you implying that its the ref's fault Max?"

Kellerman: "Ummm... No... I just think if you are going to let them fight that way, Then you let them fight that way"

Jones: ".......OK?" (Jones prob felt like sayin' YDKSAB)
If memory serves me right, didn't Kellermans brother get killed by a boxer?? it would explain a lot lmao

I like Farhood, but why on Earth do you like Bernstein?
