You turned the commentary off after 61 seconds?

I did not enjoy the commentary to be honest and thought the warm-up was laboured.

I nearly screamed after the 15th comment about mind games said in that knowing fashion.

While we're kicking people thought the ring announcer gave Buffer nothing to worry about.

Who is the guy that hosts the Sky Ringside broadcasts on the Aussie side of things - they cut to him between rounds and stuff? He is the best voice on boxing imo but he never does enough.

Get him to announce all Aussie fights - he sees things for what they really are and adds value everytime he talks about a fight.

Andy Raymond is below below average...

Barry Michaels is laughable. I know plants that would give a better commentary than him.

That would be Mat Brooks, huge boxing fan and a good bloke as well.

i thought the commentry was good last night. briggs and michael work good together as the boxing knowledge and raymonds does alright. Raymond use to piss me of but he isnt that bad anymore. Briggs is the best commentator for boxing in australia. My favourite commentator by a mile. I think barry michael is slowly slipping away as a commentator. But still good to listen too. Im happy with the team of commentry last night. Its a hell of a lot better then the time they had jason duntal, what the fukk was that about. I couldnt stop laughing at him all night, i just wanted to punch him in the face. Paul upham pisses me off. Last nights commentry was good.

I prefer Mat Brooks as a play by play guy over Andy Raymond.

Andy Raymond should go back to ring announcing & have Mat Brooks & Paul Briggs as the commentators.

Then we have myself Kegsy as the 3rd man expert analysis (ala HBO style with Lennox or Emmanuel Steward) & Leon doing his personal scorecard as well having some random rants on the poor officiating (ala HBO Harold Lederman)

My first rant would be their poor choice of the guy next to me doing the expert analysis.

I second this motion! Mat Brooks and Paul Briggs would be the best team we have. Adding Kegsy just seals the deal!

The last thing you want for Australian boxing television is someone who knows what theyre talking about.

In that case, our country would be aware how shit our standard of boxing was.

All are entitled to their opinions but geez you attack him on a personel level and I bet you don't even know the guy.

Stick to the facts!
Are you serious?????????? Ive watched some of the best fights ever seen on fox & Andy is not even watching the fight he's talking about some totally use piece of information he heard last week or how good the ring card girls look (agreed) misses whats going on in the ring then comes out with how the guy that just got rocked is dominating the fight & putting his combinations together beautifully.. I'd rather press the mute button.
