    How ironic that his lack of self-awareness and his obvious comfort around all things Matchroom and Sky has ultimately led to him losing the oxygen of publicity that he loves the most.

    Yeah it was him and Coldwell. Both said Chisora easily won the fight winning by a few rounds.

    Macklin and Smith get stick but at least they were honest that Usyk was winning most of the rounds.

    Macklin has no honesty - listen to his commentary at the end of the recent Barrett v Kiko Martinez fight where he declared that Martinez had rightly been the CLEAR winner only to state within 30 secs that he thought it was a draw. Then bizarrely he was asked by Smith how he was scoring the Warrington fight and he admitted that he was not scoring it.

    Hope so. Good news if true. They probably gave it the benefit of the doubt to begin with by viewing it as ‘pashun’.

    In reality it’s just embarrassing and detracts from the sport. Viewers don’t tend to watch ‘experts’ for propaganda, people want insight and education.

    He was dreadful that night. I’m sure he messed up the Kiko fight a few times, he was saying around the 9th/10th that Kiko was clearly up and Barrett was in trouble then at the end said Zelfa swept the last 4 rounds to draw?

    Laughable to say he wasn’t scoring the Warrington fight. What are they paying him for?

    Doubt that's true. If one-sided commentary is frowned upon then there'd be nobody left on the Matchroom Sky payroll.
