Default Why all the hate for Max Kellerman?

Seems like everyone and his mother want him off HBO. Why?

I don't get it either. I like Max. He seems like a real fan of the sport, like one of us. Plus more importantly I think he does a good job most of the time minus an off moment here and there but who doesn't?

You have an opposite thread on here that says the new HBO broadcasting team should be Roy Jones, Jr., Lennox Lewis and Teddy Atlas, pleeease already! Now I for one am for retiring Jim Lampley and most definitely Larry Merchant but what in the hell is up with all the hate for Max Kellerman?

Max is as calm and well leveled as they come and to some if not most of these opiniated individuals out there, haters especially, Max in a smooth sense comes of to some degree as being a little bit liberal but in reality it's just a person trying to be fair to both sides and not just one when he's on the mike. Hey, there was only one Howard Cossell and like the pimp he was he had more than his share of haters to compensate for the one and only true person/friend whom he helped turn into an extrordinary media creation that he was already becoming(Muhammad Ali) and in turn that person helped Howard become even more than what the average joelike journalist could even dream about becoming to the media and american television. Max Kellerman already has his share of haters, but he's not the next H.Cossell. He's already becoming the first Max Kellerman, who will eventually be known as just "Max."

Catchy!

I don't mind Max, I just don't think he is very good at boxing commentating.

He has no insight, someone like Merchant was at least funny and sounded more interesting then Kellerman. What would be good is if Jones started using Kellerman as a kicking post more often.

I really like Max, he makes the sport of boxing even greater. I like his commentary too because he is to the point, and he talks sense. It's nice to have a younger guy rather than just the ancient greats lol

I really like Max as a person.

Sadly, when it comes to boxing knowledge, Max and reality are rarely invited to the same party.

I've in the minority: Since he started at HBO, I've thought Max has improved tremendously. I used to want to punch him in the face nearly every second of the broadcasts. Now, I get that feeling only about 2-3 times per broadcast. He has nice knowledge of the sport historically, can explain what's happening in a fight alright (although he can get quite generic and repetitive at times - especially with the whole "southpaw foot positioning" thing he brings up during every southpaw/orthodox matchup), and he has a clear passion and love for the sport.

I hope he stays for a while. I've talked with him in person, too, and it was like I was talking with just a regular fan. We chatted a bit about Pernell Whitaker, Gamboa, Moreno/Mares, Ward/Dawson, and Nishioka/Donaire. Called those fights correctly if I remember correctly.
