    Would Gray denounce any other athlete in any other sport like he did with Dominic Breazele? Dominic was just knocked out and Jim Gray announces to a huge crowd that the public doesn't want to see Deontay Wilder fight boxers like Breazele. He's lucky Dominic didn't throw him out of the ring instead of just ignoring his request for an interview. Jim Gray has always been disrespectful to boxers over other athletes (exception: Pete Rose). F*ck Jim Gray.

    What does Gray think gives him the right to disrespect boxers on national TV in front of millions?

    Has he ever been in a fight in his life? I doubt it.

    Deeply misplaced arrogance.

    He was right,better that than pretending this was anything other than a marking time fight.

    Gray pulled a biss-poor stunt in the Wilder post-fight interview.
    (Note: Gray was inducted with the class of 2018 into the International Boxing Hall of Fame).

    I do understand the point he was trying to make but he obviously went about it in very bad taste.

    Yeah there's speaking the truth but he's just arrogant about it. Then he went and tried interviewing Breazeale after talking rubbish about him.

    Gray strikes me as a bit of a sociopath in that he thinks he can run his mouth and insult boxers and not even understand or act oblivious as to why they're pissed off at him. He's pulled this stunt numerous times, mainly to boxers. Only once was he put in his place when post fight Kostya Tszyu grabbed Gray's mic and said, "Don't be rude!" The live crowd loved that. :)

    That's awesome! That's the way Gray deserves to be treated.

    Jim Gray is a **** no doubt about it.

    Problem with him is he doesn’t respect the fighters, any man who steps in the ring to fight another man deserves respect no matter what level he’s at. The only thing Jim ever boxed was his Scooby Doo lunch pale.

    He’s always has been and probably always will be a ****, it’s a pattern of behavior.

    Jim Gray is an ass of the highest order. I remember him grabbing the energy (granola?) bar out of Maidana's hands after the first Floyd fight during the in ring interview. I think he like smacked it down.
