Honestly, people like him absolutely ruin fights. You can have an excellent fight but with a shit commentator it just ruins it for you. Same with the Sky crew for a lot of US fights.

I remember he did the commentary for Morales-Limond.

ended up switching it off when he kept calling Willie - LIEmond!!

a bit like Buncey and his pronunciation of Alvarez.

Would love them just to get HBO or Showtime coverage. HBO can talk crap about a fighter but Benny and Bob are sending me nuts

I just can't listen to him screaming constantly, even at a slight glancing shot it sounds like he's going to rupture a blood vessel in his head.

Luckily Alba i didn't pay to watch it, I just think the guys terrible. It's basically high level boxing with a Zelenoff level commentator..

What I don't get about boxing commentators is why they can't just commentate, as opposed to feeling the need to nearly bring themselves to an early death by speaking all the time.

Exactly, That's what was doing my head in with Fischer last night, two absolute wars going on in Cruz/Morel and Maidana/Karass and he was yapping away about irrelevant shite as if he was talking to a mate at a sparring session.

That bloke who boxnation had cover the Geale/Sturm fight is the best commentator ive ever heard, we need him to do all the fights

I remember watching Limond vs Morales and early in the fight willie was winning easily, I think it was round 2 where willie landed every punch and morales never even threw, bob sheridan goes "I gave that round to the scot, what about you Benny?" "actually I gave it to Morales" I was like WHAT THE ****?!

literally Morales never landed a punch, in fact barely even threw one

I didn't have the pleasure of watching with Benny last night. Did make up any new ring names for the guys? I love how he calls Mayweather the Black Widow

venusdiablo; your whole operation is terrible pal. When you're watching it thinking 'I've been ripped off' you know the service being provided isn't a good one.
