Except Mitchell missed the left hook. It wasn't all that great a move at all, but to hear Lampley scream it out, it was the move of the centrury.

Hey, I like Mitchell and all, but Lampley is trying to make him out to be the second coming of Tyson or something.
This is the type of B.S. I'm talking about....What the hell is he watching?

i had pac winning but these faggot ass commentators were on mannys nuts way too hard and wouldnt give bradley credit for shit. leddermans scorecard was a disgrace.

they loved to cry about Manny getting robbed but they acted as if Marquez lost convincingly knowing damn well he schooled pac. and to this day, still wont admt it.

Sad part is the entire HBO production team is in on this BS. There were literally ZERO highlights for Bradley shown the ENTIRE night! ZERO!?! NOTHING!

Notice, everyone they sit next to Lampley who actually knows something about Boxing, i.e., Boxers? Is fired. With EXTREME prejudice.

Yeah it got so bad that George Foreman quit, because of Larry Merchant.

I don't mind them. They often call missed shots for Pac and whatnot, but that particular case wasn't too bad. If you have an arm free you can punch, but in most close up clinches like that, the ref breaks them. They stood there for almost ten seconds without moving their feet standing straight up.

I was watching the Morales-barrera trilogy yesterday and Harold had everything opposite to the official cards... I find it amazing when this guy says that this is how it is and is very easy to score... Max is definitely losing personality under the lights in the big fights - I do hope he mans up sometime in spite of just making excellent speeches. Lampley always has been a duchbag and Manny Steward continues to have problems separating his views from his own work on fighters as a trainer. Larry Merchant already passed the 80 year old mark. But c'mon, Showtime without Steve Albert and with Jim Gray being made fun of every single time is not an alternative. Thank God Al Bernstein still loves the game and Antonio speaks clearly. Atlas on FNF is... Well I can't say it so...

Yeah but Lampley and Stewart accused Bradley of holding and hitting when the video clearly showed Pac holding Bradley's arm... Also I see the better refs give the fighters a chance to punch their way out... Ain't nothing worse than a ref who breaks every time fighters get close to each other...it ruins the flow of the fight.

Compubox literally means shit when scoring a fight. The judges don't use it, and for good reason. It's fine to use it to analyse a fight ex post facto, but that's it.

Lederman...I just find annoying.
it's not good for anything other than to appease jim lampley and hbo's agenda. someone posted a pic of the compubox guys and i noticed they had headphones on....i have to believe that they use them to score the fight. they are never off with jim lampley. pure bullshit.

yeah...but lampley stated that bradley was holding pacs arm when it was clearly the other way around.

Here is a example. Before I start I would like to state for the record that I had Pac winning the fight.

For those of you that have access to the fight go to round 2 at 2:23 of the round the fighters come together Pac's right arm is over Tim's left arm pinning it against Pac's body. Bradley does what a fighter is supposed to do, punch with your free hand, he does this until the ref breaks them at 2:11 then at 2:05 Lampley says the crowd didn't like the fact that Bradley had his left arm clamped over Pac's right arm and Byrd didn't break them, then Stewart chimes in "I was really surprised that Byrd didn't catch that ,cause he held on to it for a long time. Lampley shot back "Indeed Bradley was holding and hitting.
Sometimes I wonder What N the hell are they watching???

Now I know that this is just one example but it's like this for every fight.
Anybody else have any other examples? feel free to add them.
Pac won the fight, but HBO's cheerleading all night for him and ignoring anything good Bradley did was sickening.

That was a very very poorly called fight, and I fault all of them, Lampley, Steward, Kellerman and Lederman.
