There was a thread on him a couple weeks ago. Personally, I like him. He's got a lot of experience, is obviously knowledgeable on the finer points of the game, and has a ton of enthusiasm.

He'd be fun to grab a beer with but the only one he should sound knowledgeable to is an fan that knows nothing about boxing. He endlessly shills fighters and often greatly embellishes their ability or standing. To me, he sounds quite ignorant or he's the ultimate bullshitter. I think it's a bit of both. For example, he said that stiff that KO'd the bigger stiff (on the Holyfield undercard) was the next big thing in the division. That's ridiculous. The guy sucks and wouldn't get by most decent journeymen.

He's a shill for the fighters. He's over the top, yes. I prefer him over the constant smack talk of a guy like Atlas who is always putting down fighters.

The cheerleading for Holyfield last night was too much - I turned the sound off after about round 7.

He's useful as a way of making a fight that doesn't matter seem like a slobberknocker, to continue the WWF theme this thread has. Can you imagine Larry Merchant (who I do like, but who is a grump) doing the same fights-

"Holyfield is a has been, Savarese is a never was. You don't care about this fight... And neither do I."

Teddy Atlas is a good balance between the two approaches. Teddy calls shit when he sees it, but he has (especially in recent years) developed an appreciation for the ordinary Joe's of boxing.

Far be it from The Colonel to miss out on dinner.

His announcing is a joke and along with Max Kellerman, he should be commentating for the UFC. I was cheering for Holyfield during the match, but his nuthugging got so ridiculous that I almost wanted Holyfield to start looking bad just to hear what he would say. The funniest part was when he said that Sergei Lyakhovich, a supposed "friend" of his, would be no match for today's holyfield a year ago when he held the title.

Sheridan is as pathetic as they come.An absolute nuthugging schill for whoever the promoter is.Even Kellerman is better than this fat prick and that is saying something.He works cheap and always remember-you get what you pay for.

Sherradan is one of the worst commentators in the sport - but at least he's not as bad as that PUNK Kellerman.
