Exactly.

I doubt Dave Coldwell saying to Tony Dodson ''you're doing **** all!!'' is any worse than Bruce Willis effing and jeffing about a million times during Die Hard 2, a film that would be on at a similar time

Lets admit it, its more like Watt and Watt. Big Jim just runs off at the mouth with anything that happens to spring into his head, showing an unnatural bias towards one particular fighter, and Smith just hangs off his testicles for 50% of the time, agreeing with everything he says, keeping his scorecard one or two points away from Jim's to maintain some pride in himself, while the other 50% is spent calling phantom punches that don't land and making out that a decent/poor domestic scrap is actually the Thrilla in Manilla part two.

It really is becoming infuriating.

Any realistic replacments that you can think of?

Even someone who can keep a leech on Watt, while Smith is dragged into the cellar of the Sky Sports building and quickly done away with? (Darke does a good job, but isn't always available)



Totally agree D-MAC.

Watt, is a boring old git who is continuously contradicting himself. Last night he was hanging off Smalls nuts (imo) and then when about round 10 came about we all find out that he has the cards near enough level.

Plus he is always negative about one fighter. Last night as Webb was cut he was saying that Webb should just go for broke, if it doesnt work out then at least he tried but he would be losing to the better man (or in words like that).

Adam Smith is shite, and looks like a nonce.

I always liked Darke and McCrory but as you say they seem to have prior engagements.

Woodhall, Oliver or Johnny Nelson, who i like as a commentator, dont know about everyone else.

the thing about Jim Watt is that he used to be brillant watch his comentary in the 90's with Reg, he was brilliant very calm and measured, but now he's just constantly roaring his head of and shouting.

I like Jim Watt I thinks he is a great man, but I think nowdays hes better suited to being on the panel in studio than comentating

Adam Smith is awful,you would think listening to him that Paul Smith vs Dobson was Gatti vs Ward,I think Ian Darke and Spencer Oliver would be the two best commentators..

I quite like Darke but heís slipping a bit these days and Sky should be looking to get someone in to learn for the future. I'd pair the new fella with Spencer Oliver, who's criminally underused by Sky.

I canít believe someone mentioned Colin 'Itís not like the old days' Hart. The thought of having to listen to him droning on about Ali all the way through a British title war sends shivers down my spine.

My favourite main commentator is Ian Darke and my favourite co commentator is Duke Mckenzie so that would be my ideal partnership.Watt is boring and annoying and extremely biased in his opinions

Oh no!

Duke is a total lightweight in the commentating stakes. If he was a referee every fight would be waved off in the first round. If a fighter takes more than two punches its a brutal beatdown and Duke is tugging at the ringside Doc's sleeve to intervene. A stiff jab lands and Duke breaks into his famous "he's gone" line. Thanks but no thanks.
