Are you crazy he was horrible this saturday, he kept trying to talk but had nothing really informative to say.

I like Tyson- also Hagler but his voice is getting a little too gravelly to understand

I dont care for Jones, but please nobody say Mike Tyson that would be a joke. Lennox actually wasnt that bad this past Sat.; he did say one good thing about Penalosa needing to go the body earlier in the fight. Than lo and behold later on in the fight Penalosa stops Gonzalez with a perfect body shot.

Roy knew his shit. He would predict shit that would happen exactly over and over again....like shit like "he's gonna get caught with a left uppercut...." and then it would happen. Definitely knowledgable.

He just talked about himself waaaay too much.

Old man Hopkins would be great, but I think his position with GBP would preclude him from commentating on most fights because it would be a blatant conflict of interest....

Not that he's done commentary for HBO, but I actually like Genaro Hernandez quite a bit...Lewis still fumbles over himself too much for my tastes, and for someone who was schooled under such great trainers, he seems to have a hard time verbalizing what's going on that the audience isn't able to see for themselves. IMHO, the point of having a former boxer doing color is that he knows better what's going on in the fighters' heads, and what adjustments they should be looking to make strategically. Lewis just doesn't do well at that at all; of course, the best at doing that right now (Teddy Atlas) drives most people absolutely batshit crazy, so maybe it's best that he doesn't say much

Tyson is a horrible commentator. Its like listening to Richard Simmons call boxing. He has a lot of knowledge, but he doesnt have the best TV voice.
