Jones is actually a very humble man in most aspects of his life.

Larry used to be decent but he's gotten so damn senile and somehow slower. is there anyone if the history of tv broadcasting that speaks as slowly as this guy?

When did he ever do this? It seems it's usually the other commentators like Kellerman saying stuff such as "like Roy was in his prime", not Jones himself.

He did it much more in the past than he does now.. he used to make comments about how certain fighters were using his style, or he would always analogize what was happening in the ring to his own career even when it didn't really warrant it. "It's just like what happened to me in the Olympics!"

Like I said, though, he doesn't do it very much recently.

He was the only one seeing what Marquez was doing. Lamps and RJJ basically gave the fight to Pac from the 4th on. I don't think people like honest commentators. For the most part, Larry is the one that calls fights BS. Heck, how many times has he called out Floyd? I'm a Floyd fan, but I do agree with Larry even when he talks smack about Floyd.

Well the man is over 80 years old, so Im glad to see him go, he had his moments. But please somebody put Kellerman out of his misery. Roy jones and Lampley are good though.

That part with the definition of insanity was great stuff. Did he just make that up as he went along or was it scripted?
