Default Man that Commentary during Taylor v Pavlik 2 was PAINFUL !

What did us Aussies do to deserve such crappy commentators ?

It was painful as hell !

The number of times they shouted out about great shots landed which were in fact taken on the arms, i wondered if these guys were watching the same fight !

Mario Lopez (AC Slater) isn't the best. Dougie Fisher was OK though.

Doug Fisher was not bad actually.

I find it so funny we listen to Mario Lopez.
He said something in the Montiel-Castillo matchup about Castillo being "Saved By The Bell".

These guys are all trash compared to the HBO team. A lot of people try to bag Jim Lampley, but fact is that is FAR AND AWAY the best commentator in the sport. Along with guys like Roy Jones and Manny Steward providing technical analysis, it totally blows away Showtime IMO. Not a big fan of Larry Merchant though to be perfectly honest.

I could hardly hear the commentary due to the noise at the pub, sounds like a good thing I couldnt.

I agree and even my mates who dont follow boxing love his charisma. Lampley has a great voice for the job.

I watched the Setanta coverage of the fight and i didnt mind the commentators, its not the same ppl this topic is about is it?
