    I don't miss him. He doesn't say much as far as technical fight stuff. Roy is better.

    Now don't get me wrong, Roy is excellent!

    Foreman, however, is arguably the greatest ever in terms of entertainment value. Big George was just extraordinary. That said, he mentioned that he has no interest in returning to commentating and that he enjoyed it but does not miss it.

    In terms of entertainment, Yes. I'll give you that.

    In that case, have him replace Merchant/Kellerman. I can live with that.

    At some point his ego will clash with Roy's ego and sparks will fly (as Lampley weeps)

    I like the smaller fighter perspective. A heavyweight thinks fighting big, and he doesn't have as much concept of speed and a little fighters fight.

    Would that lead to another Foreman comeback? Can Big George catch this version of RJJ?

    Big George is busy enjoying his money and his retirement. I'd know that I'd prefer that to listening to Lampley's histrionic bull**** every other week.
