    Watching the PBC card tonight. Lackluster fights made even worse by the commentary dream team of Brian Kenny, Lennox Lewis and Dan Goosen. These 3 ****tards really suck. You got BK always trying to force the mention of George Floyd into the broadcast over and over again. Even during the ring walk of the one guy,, saying he had “ to overcome the death of George Floyd during his training” as if he knew the guy personally. What politically correct garbage..
    then Dan Goosen with his boorish opinions and Lennox acting disinterested as ever and only offering the occasional generic observation. Truly wretched.

    Eh, I really like Goosen. One of the best in the business!

    Brian Kelly is just fine.

    I do wish Lennox had more insight to offer. He struggles to put simple idea's together (a la Joe Biden)

    I can't believe Lennox still gets hired as a color commentator. He's as dull as it gets.

    Loved your analysis. Absolutely garbage announce team and I actually like the PBS presentation. Hopefully Roy Jones does commentary with them.

    I've always been surprised by how bad SRL and Lennox are as commentators. They're awful.

    Sugar Ray Leonard was a walking 'cliche', you could have put an audio device on repeat and it would replicate SRL and even out do him. Just feed the old phrases into it, 'he's a hungry fighter', 'styles make fights' etc and you wouldn't know the difference. I think Leonards last attempt at commentating with PBC and DAZN was truly bizarre.

    Lennox is terrible. Doesn't say anything intelligent. He seems to be too slow for live commentary. Can't come up with anything on the spot. Brian Kenny is not bad, he has a suitable voice. Dan Goosen, hmm, don't mind him either way.

    Paulie should be hired. I hope he isn't black balled now like he is a criminal.

    Dan Goosen has been dead for almost a year. Do you mean Joe?

    Terrible lineup, and they are so cheesy. It really takes away from the event. Oh HBO broadcast team, how I miss thee.

    I dont want to sound rude but what did you expect?

    They hire no option shills that will say whatever they are told to say.

    If someone talks aginst narrative they get fired...
