    Mike Costello has been good on the radio.

    Laura and Maya are good looking birds and professional TV presenters, but come on ....

    Maya Jama is a very clever choice I think, from a marketing point of view anyway. She's a big name, has a huge organic social media following and is a good presenter. They were always going to choose a few female presenters so she's a better choice than Anna Woolhouse from DAZN's point of view.

    DAZN should have insisted that Matchroom should have brought Paulie in, Eddie didn't want him as he wouldn't follow narratives.......
    Every Fighter home and away would have had a fair shake from Paulie he is great commentator and analyst, i would have liked Paulie and Lee although Mike Costello is the best of a bad bunch in terms of mainstream commentary.

    To be honest, it's the ex-boxers who've been the worst on SKY over these past few years.
    Nelson, Bellew, Froch. Awful bunch.

    Toe Haye the worst by a mile whatever channel he surfaces on - sells every fight as a 50/50 unification fight even when it is Daniel Dubois v A. Total-Pudding

    Hilarious that Eddie thinks this is the best of the best in boxing pundit and presenting terms. He's lost the plot.

    Mike Costello is not "the best of a bad bunch", he's a great commentator.

    It's not bad, Costello is great, Barker and Lloyd are very good. Andy Lee is decent. Dont know much about the two women except there easy on the eye. Bellew is meh.

    DAZN were not going to hire Pauli after showtime axed him.

    That's not about following narratives that's just an extremely dumb thing to say.

    Disagreeing with what Haney said wasn't the issue. It was the nonsense to suggest Haney's comments prove their is no racial prejudice in 2020. If one doesn't believe there is any racial prejudice then present an argument to show this in real life situations such as housing, education, healthcare, the judicial system etc etc.

    Do not claim such a thing because of the the treatment of Devin Haney.

    Where’s Jermaine Jenas? Surely he’ll be involved. I’ve seen him more than my family over the past few months.
