And not controversial? When was the last time a pundit on Sky went on a rant about ANYTHING?

Sky should use the smaller shows to try out different ex boxers (not ancient). Surely they'd strike gold eventually. Altho Jono's performance in the Froch Dirrell fight was as bad as it gets.

Personnally,my pick for the main commentator would be Jonny Nelson,someone I enjoy listening too.

What about even having 3 guys,2 anyalists and one yes man. Watt with a free reign is too overpowering,grating and just plain annoying. He couldn't work in a team of three which wouldn't be a bad thing.

I think we should get Max Kellerman to replace Adam Smith.

Anybody is better than that useless, ''mind your language'' ****wit.

Darke & Spencer are the only ones I'd keep from the current sky team.

Piper, Nelson, McRory and Watt need replacing asap. We need interesting and non biased commentators and pundits. Does anybody actually care or look forward to what Nicky Piper has to say after a fight?

I think Carl Froch would be an excellent 2nd man alongside Ian Darke. Bunce would be a welcome addition in the studio, but as we know he's not a 'yes' man so Sky aren't interested.

Bad idea...All he'd do is go on about Joe Calzaghe

To be fair, I think Froch was the one who stopped with the whole Calzaghe stuff. It was only when Joe, for some unknown reason, decided to slag him off again in the press that it all started again.

He is more of an anaylst.


Spencer Oliver would be a brilliant commentater.

Bunce and Woodhall or Jon Thaxton and Spencer Oliver.

JT or SO are two names I think that wouldbe very good together. It is time that Spencer Oliver got more than a bit part on Sky shows...

Would be superb comedy.

Co-Signed...

Sky would never go for that though... Buncey says it as it is and they would not want that... They are too scripted...

The amount of guests that would come on through Buncey would be great...

I thought Thaxton was good on the Froch-Dirrell fight. Not just a jingoist blindly supporting British fighter. I'd like him to get a go. I don't see what others do in Spencer Oliver. David Haye or Adam Booth would also be very good but I don't see them doing it for obvious reasons.

Ian Darke is still the best by miles. No one else on Sky gives the impression that they care at all about boxing except as a Friday night job.

Woodhall is alright but by no means great. Remember his 'Who wouldn't want a rematch after Calzaghe-RJJ'? Err...everyone.
