Default Lennox becoming a very good commentator

Have to say, Im getting more and more impressed with Lewis' commentary as of late. He did an excellent job on the HBO show this saturday, and it seemed to work out great with just Papa and Lewis. Max to me has not been very good with HBO and doesnt seem to fit in. He was never a good commentator, but better as a studio analyist in my opinion.

I'll take Lennox over Max Kellerman anytime.

Bring in Roy Jones, Lennox Lewis, and Manny Steward and I'll be happy

Lewis has been exposed to commentating for YEARSSSSSSSS and still isn't great.

He isn't a talker, it's just not his thing.

Hell, he has been featuring since Bowe-Holy I.

He needs to go. Bring X, maybe Tyson in.

Actually, other than the rough speak Roy was quite insightful.

Big George is my pick, but Lennox is improving. I have not heard any more zingers from Lennox in awhile like "ALOT OF GOOD BASKETBALL PLAYERS PLAY BASKETBALL" that was funny.

RJJ is okay, so long as he isn't with Lampley.

"Brown with a left hook."
"He's been watching some Roy Jones Jr tapes, Jim!"
"Ahaha, not as good as your left hooks, Roy."

RJJ and Lewis could be an oddly listenable duo.

Or like I've suggested before...get Larry Holmes on commentary.
Round after round of him complaining about jabs, it'd be a thing of beauty.

RJJ, Lampley, Manny

My Fav.



Although of course referring to yourself in 3rd person.

But when Jones called things, like when Quartey got droped and other things. It was just crazy perfect insight.

I'd love to hear him criticise Lampley's pin-ups like Taylor and Wlad. The only problem is that I'd have to wash my ears out afterwards, because of the bitter lemon juice that Holmes would be squeezing into it.

He was a little better this Saturday but he's still pretty bad.
