I absolutly agree on that. Shannon was pretty good comentator tonight. And he was pretty funny too. Remember the 5 reasons Shannon won't fight at Light Heavy?

Number 1 was somthing about Donuts or somthing.
Number one was something about Briggs having just renewed his Krispy Kreme membership card.

There were also some other funny ones like "The guys at 175 can actually fight" and "I would actually have train". Glad to see Briggs has a sense of humor and that he can poke fun at himself. I still remember Briggs' reaction after winning the WBO heavyweight title. He was just an extremely grateful individual.

Thought I must begrudgingly admit, it sounded like Pineapple wasn't doing that bad, based on the little I heard.

I was shocked at how he good he was. Somebody should do the right thing and give him Kellerman's job.

Briggs is a likable guy outside of the ring and isn't a horrible commentator, but I like Allan Green a lot more than any guest ****yst that's been on FNF. I hope he seriously considers a broadcasting job if he leaves boxing.

I wouldn't mind seeing Tarver and Briggs in there over a couple of the bozos doing it now. Atlas and Kellerman are clown-for-pound #1 and 2 announcers.

He started out rough but got better. He looks and sounds like a pro wrestler tho.

I thought Briggs and Tarver both did a very good job.

You mean you didn't miss Atlas's psyco babble, lame sports ****ogies, and non stop obvious observations and comments. Gems like, "He is tall but he is fighting small"
