    Mares is good, but I really liked Malignaggi's expert analysis. Any idea why he left?

    He was the first on that platform to speak some truth about Wilder and it wasn’t well received by Espinoza’s boss Al Haymon.

    Say what you want about Tim Bradley commentating but it’s refreshing to see him not get silenced by ESPN after fairly critiquing Shakur Stevenson’s late performance in his last fight..

    He said something that modern social media didn't like.

    I actually dont remember what it was.

    He was already put on ice by Showtime after Wilder vs Fury 1 because Wilder’s camp was not happy with the things he was saying during the fight and after. To fire him they used an old interview where he described different boxing styles amongst different regions as an excuse.

    He said blacks weren't oppressed anymore. Which apparently was a very, very naughty thing to say.

    He said that all groups did well in boxing at different times and now mayo fighters were doing well specifically the eastern Europeans and well that pissed some people off.

    He shouldn't have been fired I'm black and I didn't find what he said to be offensive.

    I think that he let his personal baggage leak into his business life. That's not cool. I liked him as a person and commentator.

    Paulie is a REAL one, the corporate world & showbiz don't have love for or even likes real ones.
