I can see the point about McGuigan interrupting etc but I don't think he's the worst pundit out there.

this really gets in my nerves. Nobody is allowed to finish with Barry. Hes an interrupting talk over prick. It's like his opinion is more important than the others. Also he's not always impartial.

Basically a lot of the time on sky I'm sat there thinking 'oh **** off Barry'

It depends what mood he's in.

Sometimes he's brilliant, sometimes he's only just better than Nelson and McCrory.

McGuigan is a top pundit, sure he talks over people and has to have the last word, but he talks more sense that the others, so I dont care if he drowns them out now and again.

The Flintoff thing is about and promoting his son as a top upcoming trainer. If he wasnt involved, I doubt very much he would vocally support it and he is taking the piss calling people idiots for daring to criticise it.

I love Barry as a pundit and his enthusiasm is second to none but I will say the whole Flintoff thing left a sour taste in my mouth.

Like Barry.

I think part of the reason he did the whole Flintoff thing was to give Shane a bit of leg up in terms of raising his profile as a trainer.

i am a big fan of mcguigan as both a fighter and pundit, but i was shocked at the involvement in the flintoff fiasco. If Flintoff really wanted to test himself and box he should have done it in a smaller show. Also i thought flintoff as a boxer looked shocking, his stance, the way he threw punches, how did mcguigan not see how ridiculous it looked? Joe gallagher summed it up when he said he didnt want boxing to become a plaything for the rich.

but apart from that long live barry mcguigan

The best thing about the FF fight was the retarded over-the-top celebrating of BMcG and FF at the end. Very, very funny! Worth the money just for that alone!
